Treasury Wine Estates at 2011 NZ International Wine Show

Treasury Wine Estates confirms global player position with impressive Trophy and medal haul at 2011 New Zealand International Wine Show

Treasury Wine Estates continued its winning ways on the New Zealand Wine circuit with an impressive three trophies and 75 Medal haul at the 2011 New Zealand International Wine Show awards, further confirming its position as the world’s biggest listed global wine company.

Formerly known as Foster’s Group, the newly branded Treasury Wine Estates has continued to go from strength to strength enjoying several impressive award wins since its inception in 2010.

The Australian red wines once again proved their world class calibre by taking out three Trophies, with Wolf Blass being a standout success. Wolf Blass racked up two Trophies for its Gold Label Shiraz 2009. It won Trophy for Champion Shiraz/Syrah and Trophy for Champion Commercial Red Wine. Saltram Mamre Brook Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 was awarded the Trophy for Champion Cabernet Sauvignon.

The top performing New Zealand wine brands came in the form of the relatively new player, Squealing Pig and the well recognised Shingle Peak. Both deserved their Gold medal ratings for the Squealing Pig Sauvignon Blanc 2011 and the Shingle Peak Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011.

Treasury Wine Estates tallied up an inspiring medal haul which included three Trophies, 11 Gold Medals, 20 Silver Medals and 44 Bronze Medals.

Oliver Horn, Country Manager New Zealand, Treasury Wine Estates is delighted with the results and feels they not only reflect the hard work of the dedicated wine teams but also prove the company’s worth as a global player.

“To walk away from New Zealand’s largest wine show with such impressive Trophy and medal wins is an outstanding achievement. The company enjoyed the highest success rate of Trophy wins, taking out three which not only affirms our high quality wines but reflects our dedication for producing only the very best wines. These results are a fitting recognition for the whole Treasury Wine Estates team,” says Oliver Horn.

Competition Convener, Kingsley Wood explains that all of the judges were impressed with the high quality and variety of wines which were entered.

"The judges have done the hard work and now wine lovers around New Zealand and Australia have a fantastic guide to quality and value. The quality of the wines coming out of the Southern hemisphere is really remarkable. This year we saw a lot of diversity in style and fruit quality which resulted in some fantastic wines," says Kingsley Wood.

The 2011 New Zealand International Wine Show is New Zealand's largest wine competition. The wines were judged from 15 – 17 August by the judging panel which was made up of 24 senior wine judges, led by Bob Campbell. 2,080 wines were entered and this year saw a record 199 Gold medals awarded.
