The very first vintage from new Spring Grove vineyard Falcon Ridge Estate has impressed New Zealand wine judges. Falcon Ridge's 2015 Sauvignon Blanc was recently awarded a silver medal at the New Zealand International Wine Show, a bronze at the Bragato Wine Awards, and a pure bronze at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards. Owner Alan Eggers was pleased with the result, saying it reflected his commitment to building the right soil and conditions for growing.
