Wine Of The Show and Two Trophies at New Zealand Aromatic Competition

NZ Aromatic Competition
It was a trophy haul for Waipara Hills at the New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition on 7th and 8th October.
 
The 2017 Waipara Hills Pinot Noir Rosé was awarded Champion Rosé, while the 2016 Waipara Hills Waipara Valley Riesling achieved Champion Riesling and crowned Wine Of The Show!
 
Waipara Valley is synonymous for producing fantastic textural aromatics, and this Riesling certainly exceeds this mark.
 
The aromas of juicy mandarin are enhanced by flavours of red apple and lime, delivering a crisp and lingering finish.
 
Waipara Hills winemaker Andrew Brown was wrapped with the result, adding that the perfectly balanced levels of sweetness and acidity makes this wine very approachable.
 
“This award recognises that the Waipara Valley is producing some of the finest aromatics in New Zealand. The style of winemaking we use at Waipara Hills is really all about harnessing varietal character and richness, that all starts in the vineyard.” he said.
 
Sourced from The Mound and Deans vineyards on the south side of the Waipara River, these Riesling vines are planted in deep free-draining gravels with a light loam top soil. The 2016 harvest was one that gifted warm and stable ripening weather, allowing these soils to do what they do best; create grapes bursting with vibrant flavour.
 
“From the vine to the cellar, it’s a great team effort here to produce award-winning wines year after year,” said Andrew.
 
General Manager for Accolade Wines NZ Jack Glover said to be awarded Wine Of The Show cemented the fact that a variety like Riesling can stand out against the pack.
 
“It’s a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif and with a wide variety of foods; my absolute favourite match with this Riesling is Vietnamese poached chicken salad with green papaya, garlic, chilli and crushed peanuts,” he said.
 
It was a fairytale beginning for the 2017 Waipara Hills Pinot Noir Rosé; awarded Champion Rosé. During the 2017 harvest these Pinot Noir grapes were picked early, at an optimum time to capture the verve and concentration.
 
Aromas of light red berry fruit are complemented by a touch of sweetness on the palate, and the crisp finish of lingering raspberries and cream.
 
“It’s a great start to this wine’s career, Rosé is always a pleasure to make, and I’m sure it will be enjoyed immensely over the summer months,” said Andrew.
