Matua Named New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year at IWSC 2016

Matua is very excited to announce that the company have been awarded New Zealand Producer of the Year 2016 at the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London!

Matua, Giesen, Kim Crawford and Brancott Estate were finalists for the New Zealand Producer Trophy. 12 of our wines competed and all of them won a medal, allowing us to secure the title.

This means that Matua has received the title of New Zealand Wine Producer or Winemaker of the Year at a major wine competition four years consecutively - 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016*.

* 2013 Royal Easter Wine Show, 2014 New Zealand International Wine Show, 2015 Royal Easter Wine Show, 2016 International Wine & Spirit Competition.

The Chief Winemaker is chuffed with the results:

“More than ever New Zealand is producing wines that stand up on the global stage and to be acknowledged as the IWSC New Zealand Producer of the Year is testament not only to the quality of Matua wines but also the breadth of our portfolio and the consistently high standards we are achieving.

We entered 12 wines and received 12 medals – so we are so pleased to have a 100% strike rate. It wasn’t a case of one particular wine outshining the rest either, but our portfolio as a whole consistently performing well, which is our ultimate aim."
