Success for Yealands Wine Group

Success for Yealands Wine Group at the Sydney International Wine Competition

Yealands Wine Group continues to go from strength to strength, with another six top awards at the Sydney International Wine Competition. The accolades include four wines chosen in the TOP 100 and two Blue-Gold awards.

The Sydney International Wine Competition highlights wines that best complement food and are most likely to enhance a dining experience. The award-winning wines are each judged three times. The top 25 percent of wines are awarded TOP 100 status.

Peter Yealands, founder of Yealands Wine Group, says these results are particularly exciting, because they assess how food-friendly a wine is, as well as wine quality.

“We work hard to create quality wines that can be enjoyed by our customers in their everyday lives. We know that many people enjoy wine as part of a dining experience and we’re proud that a selection of our wines achieved the recognition of judges and have been recommended to be drunk at dinner tables around the world.”

The wines receiving the TOP 100 recognition are the Peter Yealands Pinot Gris 2012; Crossroads Winemakers Syrah 2010; Yealands Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2011 and Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc 2012. The Yealands Estate Pinot Noir Single Vineyard Awatere 2011 and export-brand, Babydoll Sauvignon Blanc 2012, also achieved a Blue-Gold award.

“This award is the fifth gold-medal recognition for the 2012 Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc, which is an incredible accolade for the recent vintage. I’m also delighted that our broader portfolio continues to receive awards, in particular our Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir,” says Peter Yealands.

The Sydney International Wine Competition is in its thirty-first year. The judging panel includes a diverse group of Australia and international judges, including three Kiwis.

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner in Sydney in February next year.
