Blackenbrook Vineyard, which wowed judges at the Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Awards earlier this month, won the Best-in-Show for New Zealand red wine for its 2014 Family Reserve pinot noir, and says the win was a great accomplishment for the winery. However, the family always knew the grapes were special, noting them as particularly exciting the day they picked them, Blackenbrook co-owner Ursula Schwarzenbach says. “When we picked the grapes, my husband Daniel was excited with the quality, always maintaining that this would be the best pinot noir so far produced at Blackenbrook – it’s great to see his gut feeling was right,” she says. Mundus Vini judges are extremely tough and being awarded a gold is a very significant achievement,” Schwarzenbach says. “It was also good to see Nelson pinot noir being recognised as a superior wine.” Held in Germany, the awards were judged by a panel of 150 wine connoisseurs from around the world, and Schwarzenbach says winning in Germany is particularly important to the company because it sees the country as a key export market for its wines. “This accolade will help our German importers to build a premium reputa- tion for our wines,” she says. The Schwarzenbachs carefully selected 20ha of land in Tasman, halfway between Nelson and the Abel Tasman National Park, planted vines and made their first wine release in 2004. They say their aim is to remain reasonably small and true, “stay physically in control and put our own stamp on every single bottle of Blackenbrook wine.” Twenty New Zealand wines received medals at the Mundus Vini awards, which was founded in 2001.
