Corbans wins Pure Elite Gold at Air New Zealand Wine Awards

November 2013 – Corbans has produced an outstanding result at this year’s prestigious Air New Zealand Wine Awards, with two of their Homestead range being awarded gold medals. 

Corbans Homestead Sauvignon Blanc 2012 won a ‘Pure Elite Gold’ at the Awards Gala in Queenstown over the weekend, one of only seven Sauvignon Blancs to receive the accolade.

The Sauvignon Blanc and Corbans Homestead Riesling 2012 had earlier won a ‘Pure Gold’ in their respective classes for their 100% sustainable wines.

Corbans Homestead is an affordable, everyday wine option that takes pride in producing wines of exceptional quality, and these accolades class them amongst the best in the country.

“These medals are proof that quality need not be compromised when it comes to purchasing everyday wines,” said Jane de Witt, Corbans winemaker.

“Winning Pure Elite Gold at these awards is something every winery aspires to. Having both our Homestead Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling receive recognition demonstrates the hard work and dedication of our team.” She said.

Corbans is one of the oldest and proudest names in New Zealand winemaking with over 110 years experience. The wins are a major achievement for the team and testament to the brand’s vision of producing affordable wines of outstanding quality and taste.  

Close to 1400 wines across 16 classes were entered in this year’s awards. Recognised as New Zealand’s most esteemed wine competition; it is also widely-regarded as the official competition of the country’s wine industry.

Of the wines submitted, 111 received gold medals, with only 50 gaining ‘gold elite’ status.
Organised and owned by New Zealand Winegrowers, the Air New Zealand Wine Awards is well known for its rigorous judging process with the industry’s elite making up a panel of 26 national and international judges.
