Just ten days since the New World Wine Awards’ results were announced, the Top 50 wines are flying off the shelves. Some varietal champions and gold medal-winning wines are now very low in stock nationwide.
“Given that all wines entered must also be priced under $25, and the increasing recognition among wine lovers of the calibre of this influential wine show, it's not surprising that these award-winning wines are proving so popular,” said Jim Harré, chair of the independent expert judging panel.
Wine lovers may have problems finding these:
- Clearview Estate Beachhead Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2015 (Champion Chardonnay)
- Sandalford Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (Champion Single Red Varietal)
- Saint Clair James Sinclair Marlborough Chardonnay 2014 (gold)
- Henry’s Drive Pillar Box Red Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (gold)
- Goldfields Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014 (gold)
- Mount Riley Marlborough Pinot Gris 2015 (gold)
- Waimea Nelson Pinot Gris 2015 (gold).
