The New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition, now in its seventeenth year, focuses on aromatic wines including Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Viognier and other wine varieties including Muscat, Verdelho, Arneis, Rose and Sauvignon Gris, made in an aromatic style from any internationally recognised region. The purpose of the competition is to highlight to consumers the best aromatic wine varieties available in the New Zealand market for the wine drinker.
The competition is held in conjunction with the New Zealand Agricultural Show, New Zealand’s largest Agricultural and Pastoral Show. Although there will be no Show this year due to COVID-19, we will be progressing with the New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition in order to continue showcasing the fantastic quality of wine on offer here in New Zealand.
Entries will close on the 7th October. Wines will be judged in Christchurch on the 10th & 11th October.
