Gold for KariKari

Karikari Estate Pinotage 04 won Gold and ‘Best in its Class’ at the recent Bragato Wine Awards held in Gisborne. Karikari Estate also won Gold for their Merlot Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon 04.

The Bragato Wine Awards recognise the grape grower, the vineyard and excellence in viticultural practice. They are the only New Zealand awards which recognise the vital input growers contribute.

General Manager Mark Rose says "This is Karikari Estates second vintage and it’s an endorsement of the efforts of our viticulture and winemaking team’s attention to detail that we have been able to produce two gold medal winning wines. Our aim at Karikari Estate is to craft wines of the highest quality that accurately reflect the environment in which they are grown. The challenge is to cultivate classic varietals in an uncharted meso-climate using traditional methods"
