Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2007 wins gold at the New Zealand International Wine Show.

The country's largest wine competition, the New Zealand International Wine Show, has attracted in excess of 2000 entries for the 4th consecutive year and included over 100 Central Otago wines. Wooing Tree co-owner Stephen Farquharson says "the gold medal is a tremendous achievement because there are many exceptional 2007's out there.  It is a real pat on the back for the whole team, from the vineyard through to the winery." Award-winning local winemaker Carol Bunn and her team at Vinpro make the wine.  The Wooing Tree Rose 2009 achieved a bronze in the same competition this year as well.

The Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2007 is no stranger to success, having now won 4 gold medals this year at the following events:-

The New Zealand International Wine Show 2009
The Royal Easter Show 2009
The Hong Kong International Wine Challenge 2009
The San Francisco International Wine Competition 2009

Wooing Tree is situated in the heart of Central Otago, New Zealand, next to the town of Cromwell and opposite the big fruit sculpture.  The family owned single vineyard site specialises in Pinot Noir and also produces a Rosé and a still Blanc de Noir called "Blondie" from the same grape variety.  Wooing Tree Chardonnay has also just been added to the portfolio. The Wooing Tree label has had a remarkable first few years, 3 trophies, numerous gold medals, 5 star ratings, and praise from wine writers worldwide. 

Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2007 along with the other medal winners gain entry into the Champions List, which will be announced at the Awards Dinner at the Auckland Crowne Plaza on Saturday 19th September. Trophy winners, remain secret until the announcement and presentation on Saturday night. The Trophies List and gold medal winners will be featured in a double page spread in the Sunday Star Times on Sunday 27th September.
