Wine Show Gold Medal Results from the 2017-2018 season
Compiled by Sue Courtney
Last Updated: 13 October 2017

This page shows a summary of Wine Show gold medals awarded to New Zealand wines in the 2017-2018 show season from wine shows judged in New Zealand and overseas wine shows that have a strong New Zealand presence.

The show season starts when the first wines from that vintage year are included. So in the 2017-2018 season, 2017 vintage wines are first judged - in this case at the Bragato Wine Awards judged 31 July to 2nd August 2017.

No magazine awards are included, nor are any 'five star' or gold medal equivalent ratings from my esteemed wine writing colleagues. Only the shows mentioned below are listed. Some of the wines may have also won gold in other international competitions.

The show that awarded the gold medal is indicated in the column headed 'Show Gold' by a letter code that relates to the KEY below. Some of the wines with similar but different names may in fact be the same wine but information supplied by source sites does not confirm that.

The letter code in the column headed 'Trophy' indicates that the wine won a class trophy in that Show, e.g. Champion Syrah, Best Sauvignon Blanc, etc. An asterisk (*), indicates the wine also won the Champion Wine of the Show, or equivalent at that particular show.

Trophies may not be indicated for wines that won other category trophies, e.g. Best Export Wine, Best Sustainable Wine, Best Commercial wine, etc.
