Tonnellerie de Mercurey NZ Young Winemaker 2016 announced

Congratulations to Jordan Hogg from Seresin – the Tonnellerie de Mercurey NZ Young Winemaker 2016. The National Final was held on Tuesday 23 August at MRC and the winner was announced at the Bragato Wine Awards dinner on Thursday 25 August.

Congratulations also goes to Alex Roper from Mission Estate, Hawke’s Bay who was the runner up. Tom Hindmarsh and Matt Fox were the other finalists, also performing strongly throughout the competition.

As part of the National Final the competitors had to prepare a project and give a thirty five minute presentation to three judges. They were given one week to prepare this. They also had to complete a laboratory and wine tasting module along with Capex and general winemaking knowledge modules.

It was an exciting and challenging final and the Tonnellerie de Mercurey NZ Young Winemaker competition is set to grow again next year. This was the second year the competition has been run.

Hogg took home not only the prestigious title but a $5000 travel grant, a place on WSET Level 2 course at NZSWS, a magnum of Ruinart Champagne and a beautiful, especially crafted mini Tonnellerie de Mercurey barrel. He has also been invited to be an Associate Judge for the Bragato Wine Awards 2017.
