Wine Show Gold Medal Results from the 2015-2016 season
Compiled by Sue Courtney
Last Updated: 8 March 2016

This page shows a summary of Wine Show gold medals awarded to New Zealand wines in the 2015-2016 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 2015-2016 season, 2015 vintage wines are judged - in this case May 2015.

For the 2015-2016 season results so far, scroll down.
For the 2014-2015 season results, click here.
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.

When this list was compiled after the Air New Zealand Wine Awards in November 2015, the number of unique gold medal winners was 408 with 75 of these wines having won more than one gold medal since May.
With the addition of the gold medal winners from the Sydney International and the Royal Easter Show there are now 519 unique wines in the list.

These are the most successful wines over the 2015-2016 season:
    Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Pinot Noir 2014
    Church Road Grand Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2013 (plus one from last season)
    Johanneshof Cellars Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2014
    Starborough Family Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015
    Vidal Legacy Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2014
    Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawkes Bay Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2013
    Villa Maria Single Vineyard Braided Gravels Hawkes Bay Organic Merlot 2013
A number of other wines have amassed a great collection of golds - non vintage sparkling / methode traditionelle wines especially, but these may not be from the same batch, so the other wines with outstanding performance over the last two years are:
    Akarua Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013 (4 golds)
    Akarua Central Otago Vintage Brut 2010 (6 golds)
    Giesen The Brothers Late Harvest Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (5 golds)
    Matua Single Vineyard Matheson Hawkes Bay Syrah 2013 (5 golds)
    Saint Clair Pioneer Block 9 Big John Marlborough Riesling 2013 (7 golds)
    Sea Level Nelson Pinot Gris 2014 (4 golds)
    Vidal Legacy Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2010 (8 golds)
    Villa Maria Reserve Marlborough Noble Semillon Botrytis Selection 2011 (8 golds)
    Villa Maria Single Vineyard Seddon Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012 (5 golds)
    Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Marlborough Chardonnay 2012 & 2013 (4 golds)
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 8 March 2016.
