DISCOVER WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING
IN THE WORLD OF NZ LIGHTER WINE
A few months ago, I wrote a post about the growth in sales of so-called lighter wines (wines with less than 10% alcohol by volume) in this country. I concluded the piece with the statement,
“Wine producers may still be a little shy about submitting their low alcohol wines for evaluation. According to my database, I have reviewed 276 New Zealand sauvignon blanc labels from the 2017 and 2018 vintages. Only three of them had an alcohol level below 10%.”
Just what the Doctor ordered – Golds for The Doctors’ Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé
Congrats to the team at @TheDoctorsWines who have just brought home Gold for The Doctors’ 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé at the UK Women’s Wine and Spirit Awards. The wines were judged in open class up against full strength wines from around the world so going lighter doesn’t have to mean compromising on flavour and quality.
The Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards, is judged by the most important female buyers of wines and spirits. Their roles include Purchasing decision makers at major wine Importers, Distributors and Wholesalers; Restaurant and bar Buyers, Purchasing decision makers at major and medium sized Retailers.
