Double GOLD for Cirro at 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards

MEDIA RELEASE 23rd of May, 2013

“Double GOLD for Cirro at 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards”

Cirro is on ‘cloud nine’ after recently being awarded two Gold medals in the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards for their 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon blanc and 2010 Marlborough Pinot noir.

Cirro wines are grown and produced in Marlborough, New Zealand. Winemakers David Tyney and Richard Green released their first vintage in 2009 after deciding to ‘join forces’ and combine their extensive winemaking experience. “From the beginning we wanted to create wines that epitomise the best of Marlborough, classic regional wines that over deliver on flavour and intensity” says David.

David and Richard are extremely pleased with the results of the awards, “I think the 2012 Cirro Sauvignon blanc shows remarkable generosity and balance which is a real focus in our winemaking, I’m very pleased the result ” says Richard. The current release 2010 Cirro Pinot noir has only been available for the past few months and David is looking forward to future successes, “this is a great wine with good fruit expression and structure. We make our Pinot noir to develop gracefully, so this is a good start, it can only get better!”

The Decanter World Wine Awards is one of the world’s leading wine competitions. The competition is well known for its rigorous judging process, which has led to the Decanter World Wine Awards becoming an authoritative source of wine recommendations for wine lovers worldwide. This year, the 219 judges from all around the world assessed 14,362 wines from 52 countries. This year’s expert panel of judges included 75 Masters of Wine, and 13 Master Sommeliers.

Chairman of the Decanter World Wine Awards, Steven Spurrier, says: “The DWWA has arrived at an authority, thanks to the judges, the organisation, thanks to the whole packaging. We’re here to recognise quality, that’s all we’re here for.”

Both winemakers are looking forward to continuing success. The ‘double gold’ is a great achievement and good indication of their dedication and commitment towards producing top quality wines from Marlborough. Cirro has a strong presence and online focus in Australasia and the boys are now seeking representation in the United Kingdom and Europe. With such prestigious accolades Cirro wines are certain to intrigue new consumers and see great success in these markets.
