New Zealand was well represented in the recent Winestate 'Wine of the Year' special awards feature. Our own wines came away with some fabulous results, with Craggy Range's Le Sol winning Wine of the Year and the Shiraz/Syrah of the year, and Bilancia's La Collina Syrah a finalist in the Shiraz/Syrah of the year category.
Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc also received a promising review in the Varietal Tastings and was awarded 4 stars.
“Ruby red with an aroma of blackberries and spice. The palate shows distinctive pepper and spice combined with gentle floral characters. The wine is about tecture and structure, and a sense of place.”
“A well-made wine smelling of cut grass, gooseberries and snow peas, and a simple range of varietal flavours with delicate floral notes.”
