The 2013 Spiegelau International Wine Competition event again resulted in entries from all over the globe, culminating in a comprehensive, independent review of wines available on the New Zealand market. Our 2012 Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris won gold at this event, which was a fantastic result. The 2012 Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir also received accolades both receiving a bronze medal.
Judges included a number of international guests such as Phil Reedman MW from Adelaide, Ralph Kyte-Powell also from Australia and Annette Scarfe MW from Singapore / UK. Accompanying them were be some of New Zealand’s most experienced and respected judges, the majority of whom judge every year at this event, helping to provide consistency.
