Winning wines on display at Canterbury A&P Show
A former New Zealand Young Winemaker of the Year has won the title of NZ Winemaker of the Year.
Four international wine judges picked Patrick Newton of Mudbrick Vineyard as the inaugural winner on October 15. The competition replaces the New Zealand Young Winemaker of the Year as part of the New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition, administered by the Canterbury A&P Show. The Waiheke Island winemaker describes the award as “quite an honour”.
