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 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.

This competition is held in conjunction with the New Zealand Agricultural Show, New Zealand’s largest Agricultural and Pastoral Show. Although there is now show this year due to COVID-19 we were able to hold the New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition in order to showcase the fantastic quality of wine on offer here in New Zealand.
