Kawarau Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2004 Wins Gold

PRESS RELEASE – 18th September 2006


Kawarau Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2004 Wins Gold

Kawarau Estate is delighted to announce that its 2004 Reserve Chardonnay has won a gold medal at the prestigious ‘New Zealand International Wine Show’. This is the first gold medal for a Kawarau Estate Chardonnay. The 2002 and 2003 Reserve Chardonnay wines had been awarded silver medals in the ‘International Wine and Spirits Competition’ and the ‘Decanter World Wine Awards’ – both in the United Kingdom.

Kawarau Estate’s Reserve Pinot Noir 2004 was awarded a gold medal in the Gourmet Wine Traveler in December 2005. The tasting rated the wine as the best pinot noir from Central Otago for the 2004 vintage. This was the fifth year in a row that Kawarau Estate Reserve Pinot Noir has won a gold medal. Kawarau Estate has previously won gold medals for it Sauvignon Blanc.

The gold medal for the Kawarau Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2004 follows the wine being scored 96/100 and voted best import by Huon Hooke in the Sydney Morning Herald in May 2006.

“This latest award underlines Kawarau Estate’s continuing commitment to producing the highest quality wines from its vineyard north of Cromwell on the Cromwell-Wanaka Highway. Few companies in Central Otago, let alone New Zealand have achieved our track record. We intend to do everything we can to maintain this record,” said Charles Finny, a Director and owner of the company.

“The good news is that as our vines continue to age our wines are only going to get better!” Charles Finny concluded.

Kawarau Estate was established in 1992. The vines that were used to produce the 2004 Reserve Chardonnay were planted in 1993. Kawarau Estate is a certified organic producer by Biogro New Zealand. Kawarau Estate wines are sold throughout New Zealand and are exported to the US, UK, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea and Japan.
