Golden month for Sacred Hill HALO Chardonnay

MEDIA RELEASE

Golden month for Sacred Hill HALO Chardonnay

Sacred Hill HALO Chardonnay 2012 has won Pure Gold at the 2013 Air New Zealand Wine Awards.

The prestigious accolade comes less than a month after the same wine was one of only six Chardonnays to win gold at the 2013 Hawke’s Bay A & P Show Bayleys Wine Awards.

Sacred Hill winemaker Tony Bish is delighted with the double gold success for HALO Chardonnay, one of a range of wines which he describes as “crafted to bring premium wines back into people’s everyday enjoyment”.

“Our aim was to create a Chardonnay with real texture and depth and we are pleased to see the judges in both awards have recognised those qualities.”

Named after the distinctive halo in Sacred Hill’s logo, the HALO range has earned a reputation for handcrafted, richly textured wines, from small parcel selections grown in Sacred Hill’s best vineyards.

The Pure Gold Award puts Sacred Hill HALO Chardonnay in the running for higher honours when the Air New Zealand Wine Awards trophy winners are announced at a dinner in Queenstown on 23 November.

Sacred Hill HALO Chardonnay 2012 has a recommended retail price of $27.99 and is available from Sacred Hill Wine Company.

This barrel fermented Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay has aromas of peach, ripe pears, cashew nuts and buttery, toasty oak nuances. The palate is soft, rich and creamy, with summer stone fruit flavours and spicy, nutty oak complexity. Full bodied and generously structured with lovely rounded appeal.
