Friday 03 July 2015

Broadland Wineries is delighted to announce it has added five more winners to its ever-growing list of awards. The company gained gold, silver and two bronze medals, as well as the New Zealand Wairarapa Winery of the Year award, at the New York International Wine Competition 2015 for a range of its wines available in the USA. Following its success in the IWC, IWSC, DWWA and Sommelier Wine Awards, Broadland Wineries is thrilled to have its wines recognised on the international stage. With Broadland Wineries now supplying wine to a number of customers in Western New York, these accolades pay testimony to the excellent wines it is distributing in the USA and further supports the value and quality of its portfolio.
The New York International Wine Competition has once again set unparalleled standards and uncovers the World’s best wines. In its fifth year, the New York International Wine Competition 2015 (NYIWC) welcomed almost 1000 submissions from the United States and over 30 countries from all over the world.
The NYIWC is the only major international wine competition to be judged solely by trade buyers. Each wine is judged by its category and retail price. All participating judges have purchasing power through their stores, restaurants, distribution networks, which results in their ability to have a direct impact on brand sales. What sets this competition apart from others is that the judges know the actual retail price of the wine they are judging and will the judge the wine as if they are buying it for their company. The wines are presented to the judges in their category as well as their price range.
All wines are judged in a blind tasting method and are sampled for appearance, aroma, taste, mouth feel, and finish. Each judging panel confers together to come to a unanimous decision. The judges make their decisions knowing that their peers (other trade buyers in New York and throughout the world) will also be making real buying decisions based upon the medals awarded at this particular competition.
Adam Levy, the founder of the NYIWC states, “This wine competition is designed for both the consumer and the trade buyer for they both buy on quality and price” - The judges from the NYIWC take great pride in the competition not being a “Medal Factory”. This year less than 30% of those who submitted won a medal. The trade buyer judges take the judging seriously and honourably.
The following wines from Broadland Wineries’ portfolio received a medal:
Gold: Pinot Noir - New Zealand = Honu Pinot Noir 2014
Silver: Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand = Waipapa Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Bronze: All Other White Varietals - Southern Hemisphere/Mexico = Pais de Poetas Sauvignon Blanc 2014
