Wine Show Gold Medal Results from the 2014-2015 season
Compiled by Sue Courtney
Last Updated: 30 September 2014

This page shows a summary of Wine Show gold medals awarded to New Zealand wines in the 2014-2015 show season from wine shows judged in New Zealand and overseas wine shows that have a strong New Zealand presence.

The show season starts when the first wines from that vintage year are included. So in the 2014-2015 season, 2014 vintage wines are judged - in this case May 2014.

For the 2014-2015 season results so far, scroll down.
For the 2013-2014 season results, click here.
For the 2012-2013 season results, click here.
For the 2011-2012 season results, click here.
For the 2010-2011 season results, click here.
For the 2009-2010 season results, click here.
For the 2008-2009 season results, click here.
For the 2007-2008 season results, click here.

No magazine awards are included, nor are any 'five star' or gold medal equivalent ratings from my esteemed wine writing colleagues.

The show that awarded the gold medal is indicated in the column headed 'Show Gold' by a letter code that relates to the KEY below. Some of the wines with similar but different names may in fact be the same wine but information supplied by source sites does not confirm that.

The letter code in the column headed 'Trophy' indicates that the wine won a class trophy in that Show, e.g. Champion Syrah, Best Sauvignon Blanc, etc. An asterisk (*), indicates the wine also won the Champion Wine of the Show, or equivalent at that particular show.

Trophies may not be indicated for wines that won other category trophies, e.g. Best Export Wine, Best Sustainable Wine, Best Commercial wine, etc.

The column headed 'Prev Years' indicate the number of gold medals from my previous lists - remember these are only the Shows for which I have made compilations.

KEY
- with links are to the source websites.

At the end of September, after five shows, there are 253 wines in the list.

As noted above, only the shows I am following are included here. Some of the wines may have won golds in other international competitions.

This is the list as at the 30th September 2014.
