Central Otago wine claims top national award

Central Otago's Bannockburn area can also lay claim to the top Young Viticulturist of the Year.

The event was held in Wellington on Saturday evening, and more than 450 people attended.

Family-owned Maude Wines, near Wanaka, won the New Zealand Wine of the Year Champion trophy for its Maude Pinot Noir Central Otago 2017. It also scooped the Fruitfed Supplies Champion Pinot Noir trophy and the Best Wine - Central Otago regional trophy.

Bannockburn-based Carrick Winery was the other Central Otago winner, gaining the Best Organic Red Wine trophy for its Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir Central Otago 2015, as well as the Best Organic White Wine trophy for its Carrick Bannockburn Riesling Central Otago 2017.

Other awards included Young Viticulturist of the Year, won by Annabel Bulk, an assistant viticulturist at Felton Road winery in Bannockburn.

Chairman of judges Warren Gibson said the Maude Pinot Noir 2017 was a "very classy'' example of pinot noir in this year's competition.
