Trio of Silver Medals for Waipara Hills at Air New Zealand Wine Awards.

Waipara Hills received a fantastic three silver medals, at the 2013 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. The three award winners were; 2013 Waipara Hills Waipara Valley Pinot Gris, 2013 Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and the 2012 Waipara Hills Waipara Valley Chardonnay.

A great result for three outstanding wines!  Waipara Hills contributes its success to the combined efforts of Winemaker, Simon McGeorge and Waipara Viticulturist, Jean-Luc Dufour.

Simon is delighted with the acknowledgement and believes it’s the first of many medals following the strong 2013 vintage. “Receiving silver medals for our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris is very gratifying and a sound endorsement on the overall quality of our wines. I’ll be proud to have the silver Air New Zealand stickers on my wines as I show them off in the coming year, “Simon said.

Jean-Luc has worked on the Waipara Hills Home Block Vineyard, since Pinot Gris was planted there almost 20 years ago. He believes the continued success of the Pinot Gris, hailing from this block, is due to the strict processes when planting the vines.

“The history of our success with Pinot Gris at the Home Block Vineyard goes back to 1995, where we went through the process of selecting the best bud wood for planting. These plants are on their own roots and together with a stony river terrace site, have consistently produced high quality fruit,” he said.
