Matua named IWSC New Zealand
Wine Producer of Year for the 4th Time
Matua has taken out the top prize for all New Zealand wineries at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), winning the trophy for New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year, announced last week in London.
The winery, which produced New Zealand’s first Sauvignon Blanc in 1974, had a medal tally which incorporated the Trophy alongside 12 medals, including Gold Outstanding for the 2013 Matua Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, five Silver Outstanding medals, four Silvers and a Bronze.
This now means that Matua has received the title of NZ Wine Producer or Winemaker of the Year at a major international wine competition four years consecutively – 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 – after having already been bestowed this honour at the 2013 and 2015 New Zealand Royal Easter Show Wine Awards and the 2014 New Zealand International Wine Show.
Matua was up against Giesen, Kim Crawford and Brancott Estate for the coveted 2016 IWSC Trophy.
Matua Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Noir are available for €14.99 in Supervalu nationwide.
Matua Lands & Legends is available in the on-trade.
