The New Zealand International Wine Show, New Zealand's largest wine show for 15 years awarded a staggering 291 gold medals this year from 1900 entries. In almost every category the comment from the judges was – “the best overall quality we have ever seen in a wine competition”.
The four Chief Judges, aided by 18 Senior Judges have sipped, swirled and nosed their way through over 8000 bottles of judging samples to identify and award gold.
Many of these Gold Medal Wines are absolute bargains and are now available to purchase online from the North Shore’s most experienced wine retailer – First Glass.
