Wooing Tree win gold at the Royal Easter Show

Wooing Tree win two gold medals at the Royal Easter Show.

Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2007 and Wooing Tree Beetle Juice 2007 both win gold at the 56th Royal Easter Show Wine Awards.

“Achieving two gold medals in the same competition is a fantastic result. It is also a great result for the region as Central Otago won 9 of the 11 gold’s for Pinot Noir. The accolade is tremendous because there are many exceptional 2007’s out there” says co-owner Stephen Farquharson.

The 2009 competition saw a marked increase in entries compared to previous years with over 1,560 entries across all varietal categories.

Bob Campbell MW chaired the judging panel, which consisted of the highly respected Australian judge, Mike DeGaris, and Hawkes Bay judge and winemaker Kate Radburn.

Wooing Tree is situated in the heart of Central Otago next to the town of Cromwell and opposite the big fruit sculpture. The family owned single vineyard site specialises in Pinot Noir and also produces a Rosé and a still Blanc de Noir called “Blondie” from the same grapes. Award-winning local winemaker Carol Bunn from Vinpro makes the wine. The new label has had a remarkable first few years, 3 trophies, numerous gold medals, 5 star ratings, and praise from wine writers worldwide. Recently Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2007 became the first New Zealand Pinot Noir on all the Cathay Pacific European 1st Class Flights.

Wooing Tree wines are available at fine wine stores and restaurants through out New Zealand and many overseas countries. See
