Back To Back Trophies For Morton Estate Coniglio

Back To Back Trophies For Morton Estate Coniglio

Creating great wines is not enough for Morton Estate – we also strive for consistency in our quality.

Now our efforts have been recognised with the third Trophy for Coniglio at the Decanter World Wine Awards, announced in London last night.

Morton Estate Coniglio chardonnays from the 2000 and now the 2002 vintages have secured back-to-back Trophy wins for Best New Zealand Chardonnay at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards, one of Europe’s leading wine competitions.

Last year our 2000 vintage also won the Trophy for Best International Chardonnay and the 2002 vintage is in the running again – with the Trophy winner being announced in September.

The London-based awards judge thousands of wines from all over the globe, choosing the very best from each region and then comparing the wines to select the overall International Trophy Winners.

While the Trophy recognizes Coniglio as the best of the regional Chardonnays, we’re also proud of the silver medals awarded at the Decanter awards to our 2002 Black Label Chardonnay, The Marchioness of Morton 2004 and The Regent of Morton 2002.

These wines are all refinements of Morton Estate’s winemaking expertise and their selection by the awards judges is a great vote of confidence in our company philosophy of producing the best quality at all price ranges.

Morton Estate’s Director, Sales & Marketing, Fiona MacDiarmid, says the company is ecstatic at gaining the second trophy in two years for different vintages of Coniglio.

“It shows the consistency of this wine, so for us this award is an enormous success because it rewards our fundamental philosophy,” says Fiona.

“Not only did we gain the Trophy for the company’s best quality wine but a range of our other wines were also recognised for their quality. It’s a great boost to our team after the many years of hard work they have put in.”

“It’s an enormous success, both for New Zealand wine as a whole, and for Morton Estate in particular.”
