Easter Show yields medal haul for Yealands Wine Group
Yealands Wine Group wins 28 medals at the Royal Easter Show Wine Awards

Yealands Wine Group has begun 2013 with a flourish, with its range of Sauvignon Blanc starring in a haul of 28 medals at the highly competitive Royal Easter Show Wine Awards.

The accolades include six gold medals, seven silver and 15 bronze medals. Tamra Washington, Chief Winemaker of Yealands Wine Group, says the recognition is a thrilling start to the year, which she believes is a taste of more success to come for the winemaking team in 2013.

“As a winemaking team we’re particularly excited that gold has been awarded across our range. These awards demonstrate the depth of our portfolio and we aim to consistently produce great quality wines for all of our customers, regardless of their preference or budget. It gives me great pride that the hard work of the team is continuing to deliver such amazing results,” says Tamra Washington.

Only 19 of the wines entered into the Sauvignon Blanc category were awarded gold medals, four of these were produced by Yealands Wine Group, more than any other producer. Gold medals were awarded to the Yealands Estate Single Block Series S1 Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Yealands Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and restaurant brand Baby Doll Sauvignon Blanc 2012.

The Yealands Estate Single Block Series R6 Pinot Gris 2012 and Crossroads Milestone Series Gewurztraminer 2009 were also among the gold medal winners.

The Royal Easter Show Wine Awards is New Zealand’s longest running wine competition, and as such is also one of its most competitive.

Trophy winners will be announced at an awards dinner to be held on Saturday March 16 at the Logan Campbell Centre, ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
