Show celebrates diversity, complexity and age-worthiness of Marlborough wines

The Marlborough Wine Show was launched in 2011 to demonstrate the significant sub-regional and style diversity of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc as well as endorse the region’s other grape varieties and respective wine styles.

The 2015 Marlborough Wine Show continued to review and assess entries using three panels of experienced judges and rewarded top-performing wines with trophies, gold, silver and bronze medals. In addition, the Marlborough Museum Legacy Award acknowledged consistency as well as outstanding quality and was awarded to the wine producer with the highest scores for three vintages within a ten year period. This can be for any wine style and this year was won by Stoneleigh Riesling, vintages 2007, 2010 and 2012.

Guest international judges this year were Ralph Kyte-Powell of Melbourne and San Francisco-based Wilfred Wong, who was sponsored by Wine Marlborough.
