Two Corbans wines have won gold medals at the 2007 Hawke’s Bay A & P Mercedes-Benz Wine Awards, announced at the Awards Ceremony Dinner on 16 October.
Corbans Private Bin Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2005 and Corbans Private Bin Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2005 were awarded the gold medals in their respective categories and the winemaking and viticultural team at Corbans Winery are thrilled with the result.
“We used premium grapes from vineyards within Hawke’s Bay to create these two award winning wines for the Private Bin range. The Corbans Private Bin Syrah 2005 is a prime example of our finest varietal range from the Hawke’s Bay region and its gold medal is a great recognition of the quality of the wine,” says Corbans winemaker Tony Robb.
Delighted with the Chardonnay gold medal, he commented, “This result continues the success of our Corbans Private Bin Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay. Since we started crafting this wine in the Hawke’s Bay in 2002, every vintage has been awarded either a gold medal or a five star rating”.
The Corbans Private Bin range of complex varietal wines are specially crafted from premium Hawke’s Bay fruit to be ideal companions for great food.
