The Concept

 

THE CASES ARE NOW SOLD OUT

Congratulations to Matt Donaldson of Pegasus Bay Winery for being judged winner of the Riesling Challenge 2010!

The New Zealand Riesling Challenge is a unique offering to the wine-drinking public. The concept behind the Challenge is simple:

One block of Riesling Grapes from Waipara, the winemakers’ favourite and New Zealand’s most flexible grape;

The New Zealand Riesling Challenge 12x12

This competition is a world-first in terms of providing a means of establishing the extent to which the winemaker’s individual skills and style can sculpt a given – and matching – batch of grapes into a world-class wine.

The result? A limited release of cases containing one bottle of each winemaker’s wine – available on 12 December 2010.
