Hawke’s Bay’s Villa Maria syrah claims NZ wine of the year

Hawke’s Bay syrah is now well and truly top of the vine.

As is Hawke’s Bay Villa Maria, which has claimed the New Zealand Wine of the Year Champion 2019 Trophy with its Cellar Selection Syrah Hawke’s Bay 2018.

The trophy was handed to the delighted Villa Maria crew at the national awards event held in Blenheim over the weekend — and to top the evening off nicely they also picked up two other awards in the Champion Syrah Trophy and the Champion Wine of Provenance Trophy with their Reserve Gimblett Gravels Syrah Hawke’s Bay.
