Some great results at the 2012 Air New Zealand Wine Awards, New Zealand's premier wine competition, with Mud House, Framingham and Quartz Reef all receiving Gold Medals:

Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2012

"Lovely ripeness and perfume, combined wth a rounded palate that shows excellent weight and texture.  Passionfruit, feijoa and subtle herbaceous flavours."

Mud House Estate The Home Block Pinot Gris 2011

"Youthful, fragrant and delicate, the inviting bouquet shows citrus and pear notes, followed by a juicy vibrant palate.  It's beautifully poised, and long and crisp on the finish."

Framingham Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

"An elegant wine showing restraint and poise, yet seductive and engaging with white peach, green apple, and flinty aromas.  The palate is finely textured and flowing, backed by lovely harmony and balance."

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Brut NV

"Rich and complex on the nose displaying citrus, yeast and nutty characters.  The full-bodied palate is textured and weight with an impressive long finish.  Bold and expressive."
