$15 Sauvignon Blanc Wins Trophy at Wine Oscars


$15 Sauvignon Blanc Wins Trophy at Wine Oscars

A Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has claimed a gold medal and prestigious trophy at the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards held in London last night.

The Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc 2013 took home the Regional Trophy for the best New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc under £15, with judges naming it as the benchmark Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc.

Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) are the world’s largest and most influential wine awards and is the international wine industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. A panel of over 200 world-class judging experts carefully taste their way through more than 15,000 wines from 61 countries.

Steven Spurrier, Chairman of the Decanter World Wine Awards, said “Awarding a wine with a Decanter sticker tells consumers around the world that these wines have passed the ultimate test from our judges.”

The Decanter award is the 7th gold medal which has been awarded to the 2013 Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc, picked up from competitions across NZ, Australia, Asia & the UK.

Yealands Wine Group Chief Winemaker, Tamra Kelly-Washington said “It is so rewarding to receive this recognition for our Sauvignon Blanc at this elite competition. The award reinforces our philosophy that world class wine does not need to be exclusive, or come with an expensive price tag.”

New Zealanders wanting to sample this inexpensive world beating wine can buy it from supermarkets and independent liquor stores nationwide or online from http://cellardoor.yealandsestate.co.nz
