Hunter's Miru MiruT wins gold in the Liquorland Top 100

Hunter's Wines (NZ) Ltd is celebrating its 100th gold medal and no doubt the prize winner will be used to toast the accolade.

Considered the ultimate evaluation of wines available on the New Zealand market, this international wine show is in its twelfth year and is the most established of competitions in this country.

Since its release in 1995 it has received accolades around the world including the London International Wine Challenge, the Sunday Times Wine Club, London, The Air New Zealand Wine Awards, the Decanter World Wine Awards and twice at the Effervescents du Monde in France.

Hunter's Wines Managing Director, Jane Hunter says the 100th gold medal is pause for reflection as well as celebration.

"We are overwhelmed with reaching such a milestone in the history of Hunter's Wines which is perhaps best summed up as a sense of validation for the quality of the wines and the credibility of the label. Quality has always been our catch-cry and gold medals reinforce our commitment."

2005 has been another great year for Hunter's.Wines(NZ) Ltd across the board with a number of major awards for the Hunter's Pinot Noir including a Best in Class prize at the International Wines and Spirit Show in London for the 2003 vintage and a gold for the 2002 Hunter's Chardonnay at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

The wine has been awarded five stars and will be featured in the next issue of Winestate magazine under the "Best of Recent Releases" column by Peter Saunders.
