International acclaim for Vidal Sauvignon Blanc

International acclaim for Vidal Sauvignon Blanc

Vidal Estate has picked up its second Sauvignon Blanc trophy in a matter of weeks, this time an International Sauvignon Blanc trophy at the prestigious Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2015, currently the largest wine competition in Asia.

The Vidal Estate Sauvignon Blanc has emerged as the top International Sauvignon Blanc from the full contingent of more than 2600 wines that were entered into this year's competition.

This trophy follows the recent announcement on the same wine received the Champion Sauvignon Blanc Trophy at the New Zealand International Wine Show 2015.

Vidal Estate winemaker Hugh Crichton says it's an honour to be recognised at such a renowned competition: "We're the first to admit that when it comes to white wines, Hawkes Bay Chardonnays are our hallmark, but we understand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and most importantly we know where we want to go from a style point of view. The beauty of the 2015 vintage in Marlborough is that yields were naturally low to moderate which has produced wines with brilliant flavour concentration," he said.

Vidal Estate's Greater China Market Manager Nichole Mao, who lives in Shanghai, says the Decanter Asia Wine Awards has an excellent reputation in Asia. "Winning an International Sauvignon Blanc trophy is an outstanding result and opportunity to further establish brand awareness is the rapidly growing and competitive Asian wine market," she said.

This is the third international trophy for Vidal Estate this year, having also won the International Chardonnay Trophy at the Decanter World Wine Awards for the Vidal Legacy Chardonnay 2012 in June.
