NZIWS Medal Winners


New Zealand International Wine Show 2013

Formed in 2005, the New Zealand International Wine Show is firmly established as the largest wine competition held in New Zealand each year. Wines from any country and made from any variety can be entered.

The 2013 NZ International was judged 9th-11th September 2013 and from an entry of just over 2000 wines, 201 gold medals were awarded. Eighty-three of the golds were for international entries including Champagnes, Ports, Sherries, European reds, South American, USA and of course many from Australia. A highlight of the show is 29 gold medals to Sauvignon Blanc, 24 from the 2013 vintage and all but one of the gold medal wines from Marlborough.

Complete Gold, Silver and bronze medal listings are available HERE.

Trophy results become available on this website on Monday 30th September 2013.
