Triple Gold for Yealands at International Wine Challenge

Triple Gold for Yealands Estate at The International Wine Challenge

15 May 2013

Yealands Estate Wines has been awarded three gold medals, amongst a field of more than 12,000 wines, at the 2013 International Wine Challenge.

The judges awarded gold to Yealands Estate Single Block Series R3 Pinot Noir 2011, Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2012 and Yealands Estate Single Block Series S1 Sauvignon Blanc 2012. The Yealands Estate Single Block Series S1 Sauvignon Blanc 2011 last year received the International Sauvignon Blanc Trophy.

In total, Yealands Wine Group was awarded an impressive 31 medals by the International Wine Challenge judges, across the Yealands Estate, Crossroads Winery and The Crossings brands.

“Our gold medal winning wines have all been grown on our Awatere Seaview Vineyard. It’s particularly rewarding to see the quality of fruit produced from this site developing every year, across our varietals,” says Tamra Washington, Chief Winemaker for Yealands Estate.

The Yealands Estate Grüner Veltliner 2012 was one of only two wines to receive gold in the Grüner Veltliner category. The other wine recognised was from Austria, the home of the varietal.

“Grüner Veltliner has only recently been planted in Marlborough. This wine has shown real potential and we are thrilled that our locally-grown example has been recognised amongst the world’s best,” says Washington.

The International Wine Challenge is considered the largest and most prestigious competition in the world. Trophies are awarded to the very best examples from their class and selected from the gold medal wines, after a rigorous process where the wines are judged at least three times.
