Constellation NZ’s brand Kim Crawford was named ‘New World Winery of the Year’ at this year’s Wine Star Awards, organised by Wine Enthusiast magazine. The winery is NZ’s most purchased wine brand in the US*, particularly for its number one selling Sauvignon Blanc.
According to Joe Czerwinski, managing editor of Wine Enthusiast, the company deserved to be recognised for its accessible quality matched with a rapid rise in demand.
“The key to Kim Crawford’s success has been its consistency,” Czerwinski said. “From its beginnings, the emphasis has been on fruit-forward, crowd-pleasing wines that consistently impress.”
