Whitehaven Wines are pleased to have picked up three medals at the 2014 China Wine and Spirits Awards (CWSA).

The Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013 and Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012 each received a gold medal, while our Marlborough Pinot Gris 2013 was awarded a silver medal.

The CWSA is the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in China.

More than 100 judges spent several days blind tasting more than 5000 entries from 35 countries earlier this month, before announcing the winners this week.

Our senior winemaker Sam Smail says the CWSA is an important wine competition in Asia because the judges are highly experienced and specialised in the unique demands of the Asian market.
