Sacred Hill Special Selection vintage continues on stellar course

The team at Sacred Hill are humbled after an exciting run of accolades for four of their Special Selection wines, most notably, a double gold in the 6 Nations Wine Challenge and two medals at the Hawke’s Bay Wine Awards.

A delighted Sacred Hill Managing Director David Mason says the recent tributes are a welcome reward for the Sacred Hill winemaking team who put their heart and soul into making world class, deliciously drinkable wines. “We don’t make wine with awards in mind but it is tremendously gratifying for the whole Sacred Hill team to have our wines recognised by the judges.”

The premiere award is the double gold for the Helmsman at the 6 Nations Wine Challenge in Sydney recently. The international judging panel compare the very best from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and The United States with New Zealand wines performing strongly this year. David says “It’s no mistake that the Helmsman is good. The team love crafting wine from our very special site in the heart of the Gimblett Gravels. Planted in 2002, the fruit just keeps improving as the vines age.”

Following the outstanding success of the 2013 vintage release of Sacred Hill’s iconic range, it is apparent that the latest vintage is equally exceptional.

The awards and accolades the Sacred Hill Special Selection wines have garnered include:
