The aim of ​the New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition is to highlight to the wine industry and consumers the best wines commercially available.

The New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition, now in its sixteenth 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. Winning wines will be on display in the Food & Wine Village at the Show, 13 – 15 November 2019.

The new Zealand aromatic wine competition was held on October 5th and 6th, and proved an excellent standard of winemaking across New Zealand. Results out now, please see below.


An update on plans for a 2020 competition will be released shortly.
