NZ Wine Finds Favour in Asia

NZ Wine Finds Favour in Asia

New Zealand winery Mud House has once again been recognised internationally - receiving accolades for four of its top vintage wines at the Wine & Spirits Asia, Singapore Expo.

The 2011 Mud House Sauvignon Blanc and the 2010 Mud House Riesling were both awarded Silver at the expo - while the 2010 Mud House Pinot Noir was awarded Bronze.

Wine & Spirits Asia is an international exhibition of wine and spirits that aims to promote the industry within the Asia region.

The Wine & Spirits Asia 12th International Exhibition featured more than 165 exhibitors of which 80 per cent were from overseas, across 25 countries and regions.

The 2010 Hay Maker Sauvignon Blanc also proved popular in the 'Recommended' category - and this vintage has since sold out.

The Mud House Wine Group marketing manager Cathy Wansink says it is great to be recognised at an international level among so many worldwide competitors.

"We pride ourselves on producing a range of exceptional wines from Mud House which are unsurpassed in their quality and taste, we are thrilled they are being recognised on the international stage," says Wansink.

The award follows a successful year for the 2011 Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc after it was awarded a Gold medal and Best in Class at the 2011 International Wine and Spirits Competition.
