It sounds like a bit of a mouthful, but it was all over and done with last night as judges had assessed all 307 wines entered in the Hawke’s Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards.
The two days of tasting took place at the Sensory Laboratory at the EIT in Taradale and judges last night gathered at a function before the 18th annual awards.
They will be presented at a dinner in Showgrounds Hawke’s Bay Tomoana’s Waikoko Gardens on October 16, before Royal New Zealand Show over the following days.
A&P general manager Sally Jackson said 38 wineries were represented, with entries also from 20 mainly EIT students, highlighting the EIT’s support for the wine industry in Hawke’s Bay.
