New World Edges In

Kim Crawford’s 2003 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc took top honours at the Sélections Mondiales des Vins in Montreal, winning the Grande Médaille d’or (grand gold) in its category as well as the Prix du Jury décernés par pays (best NZ wine in competition). “It’s certainly a feather in our cap to have the quality of our Sauvignon Blanc recognised in Montreal, the largest city of the province of Quebec, with its rich Francophone culture, conservative tastes and entrenched reverence for French wines, including Sauvignon,” said Kim Crawford Marketing Director, Erica Crawford, in Scoop. Gold medals went to the 2003 Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc, 2002 Coopers Creek Swamp Reserve Chardonnay, and 2003 Waipara Hills Botrytis Riesling, and silver to Brancott’s 2002 Reserve Pinot Noir.
