Two new awards launched at the third annual show


16 September 2013, for immediate publication

‘Two new awards launched at the third annual Marlborough Wine Show’
Continuing to showcase the next level of the Marlborough story, the Marlborough Wine Show has launched two new awards.

In an effort to reward producers who consistently produce outstanding wines, the Marlborough Museum Legacy Award will be awarded to a wine company for three outstanding vintages of one wine within a ten year period.

The second new award, the Award for Vineyard Excellence has been developed to acknowledge the vineyard team from grower and viticulturist to all others involved and will awarded to the highest scoring single vineyard wine.

Chief Judge, Jeff Clarke is pleased with these new developments and says, “Our goal is to assess Marlborough wines and promote excellence – these two new awards shine the spotlight on those who have to date, been unsung heroes”.

Now in its third year, the Marlborough Wine Show continues to demonstrate the significant sub-regional and style diversity of Sauvignon Blanc as well as endorsing the region’s other grape varieties and respective wine styles. This is particularly topical in light of the Australian wine industry’s current knocking of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

The 2013 Marlborough Wine Show is now open for entries – for further information please visit or call Competition Director, Belinda Jackson on 027 444 8 666.
