Benjamin Franklin once said that if you want something done, ask a busy person.
"The 2021 and 2020 wines were stunning. All the judges thought it was one of the best line-ups they have seen."
He says the Pinots out of 2020 were "just beautiful" and the 2021 Sauvignon Blancs were "out of this world."
Of the 18 trophies awarded, seven went to wines produced this year, including QuayConnect Champion Wine of the Show, which was awarded to Saint Clair's Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2021. The Saint Clair wine was also awarded the WineWorks Champion Sauvignon Blanc trophy.
