New Wines to Taste At Hot Red Hawke’s Bay

New Wines to Taste At Hot Red Hawke’s Bay

New releases, new wine labels and award-winners will be on offer at this year’s Hot Red Hawke’s Bay, the region’s flagship wine event being held next week.

Over 200 wine media, trade representatives and connoisseurs have snapped up tickets to the two events being held on June 18 at Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre and on June 19 at Te Papa in Wellington.

Now in its tenth year, Hot Red originally only offered red wines for tasting but given the region’s increasing dominance with award-winning white wines, for the second year there will be a strong showing of Chardonnays amongst the 150-plus wine line-up.

Among those are new labels Quarter Acre, Te Awanga and Two Gates wines – 2011 Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot wines created by winemaker Rod McDonald.

“I was involved since the beginning but it’s been a couple of years since I’ve attended so I’m looking forward to catching up with the various wine identities that attend,” Mr McDonald says.

He says that trade representatives go looking for new wines to add to their winter wine lists.  “They are making buying decisions so it’s a great opportunity for us as the targeting is tight and for them it’s a wonderful opportunity to taste new releases and special Hawke’s Bay reds and chardonnays in particular.”

Wine trade and media can register directly with Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers Inc through the website www.winehawkesbay.co.nz and public tickets are available from www.eventfinder.co.nz
