Gold Medal Show Results from the 2008-2009 season
Compiled by Sue Courtney
Last Updated: 30 May 2009

This page shows a summary of Wine Show gold medals awarded to New Zealand wines in the 2008-2009 show season.

For the 2008-2009 season results, scroll down.
For the 2007-2008 season results, click here.

This year the results also include the Cuisine Magazine Pinot Noir tasting (October 2008) because, with 242 wines entered, it has as many, if not more, than the Pinot Noirs entered in the largest shows.
However, no other magazine tastings are included nor 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 are not indicated for wines that won other category trophies, e.g. Best Export Wine, Best Sustainable Wine, Best Commercial wine, etc.
