Bay Alchemy: Red to Gold

Sacred Hill Wines earned a gold medal for their Helmsman Cabernet Merlot 2000 at the renowned London International Wine Challenge. Chief winemaker Tony Bish sees the award as proof that “Hawke’s Bay, indeed NZ, continues to produce outstanding red wines that can hold their own against some of the more traditional red wine producing countries.” And – in a clear case of taking wine appreciation to new levels – a group of Kiwi climbers braved hazardous weather conditions to carry a bottle of the award-winning drop to the summit of Mt Cook, to honour both the winery and Ed Hillary’s Everest conquest.
