Aronui Wines has just celebrated ten years since its first vine plantings at its Whenua Matua vineyard in Upper Moutere, Nelson. The clay soils have played a significant part in establishing the region as a premium area for aromatic wines, so it was a great testimony to those involved in the establishment of these vineyards when Aronui Wines was awarded the Trophy for Champion Pinot Gris at the 2015 Royal Easter Wine Show Awards earlier this month.

The Aronui Single Vineyard Nelson Pinot Gris 2014 has been awarded five gold medals in the short time since its release, and has become winemaker Bruce Taylor’s most awarded wine in his career.
