A treasure haul of medals; Nelson winery Richmond Plains taking out three of the 26 Gold medals awarded and four Nelson wineries receiving a further five of the 16 Silver medals at the New Zealand Organic Wine Awards.
The Organic Wine Awards is the first NZ based award to focus exclusively on certified organic wine and are founded upon the belief that above all else, producing a wine organically, gives the winemaker the potential to create a superior wine. The goal is to increase the market share of organic wine within New Zealand, and help consumers to easily identify and select a quality organic wine.
The judging was completed over four varietal based tasting sessions throughout April and May 2017. All judging is completed blind by a static, hand selected team of local experts, wine enthusiasts and consumer specialists. Wine’s were judged on a variety of factors encompassing appearance, aroma and taste and awarded points for each.
