International Trophy:  Decanter World Wine Awards

London, Royal Opera House – Little Beauty is anxiously at the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) 10th Anniversary Black Tie Presentation Dinner….14,362 wines from 61 regions around the world, 9,872 medals given, 155 Regional Trophies….with only 32 International Trophies awarded….and Little Beauty is called to the fore.  The coveted Riesling International Trophy went to Little Beauty 2010 Dry Riesling.  What an incredible achievement!  Total kudos to the Little Beauty viticultural and winemaking teams.  Their hard work, dedication and commitment is exceptional – proven here.

As Gerard Basset OBE MW MS and Vice Chair of DWWA says “An international Trophy is something unique; it’s very important as it’s telling you that all the work in the vineyard and the winery has been worthwhile.  To get an award at this level is quite an achievement”.

Wow!!  And seriously good news for New Zealand.  Not only do we make fantastic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, our Rieslings are fantastic too.  Yay!

Международная награда: Decanter World Wine Awards

В сентябре 2013 года линейка вин «Литтл Бьюти» была представлена на десятом юбилейном торжественном вечере авторитетнейшего винного конкурса Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA), который проходил в здании Королевской Оперы в Лондоне. Всего в презентации участвовали 14 362 марки со всего мира – из 61 региона, - было вручено 9 872 медали, 155 Региональных наград… и лишь 32 Международные награды. И такая желанная награда Riesling International Trophy досталась нашему «Литтл Бьюти» Драй Рислинг 2010 года урожая! Такая высокая похвала – поистине замечательное достижение нашей команды, все члены которой без устали совершенствуют свои навыки в области виноделия. Их упорство, огромный труд и преданность делу принесли нам заслуженную победу.

По словам сэра Жерара Бассета, самого титулованного на сегодняшний момент сомелье мира, обладателя званий Master of Wine и Master Sommelier, а также вице-председателя судейского комитета DWWA, «Международная награда – это нечто в высшей степени уникальное. Сложно недооценить ее значимость, так как она лучшее подтверждение тому, что все Ваши труды в винограднике и на винодельне действительно того стоили. Получить награду такого уровня – выдающееся достижение.»

И ведь это замечательная новость для Новой Зеландии. Получается, мы производим не только замечательные вина сорта Совиньон Блан и Пино Нуар, но и наш Рислинг не отстает! Вы просто обязаны разделить с нами нашу радость!

 

И снова золотые медали на европейском уровне

Вина «Литтл Бьюти» решили продолжить уже сложившуюся традицию и вновь получили двойное золото на винном конкурсе Mundus Vini International Wine Awards. На этот раз медали получили вина Совиньон Блан и Пино Нуар, а члены судейства оценили «гармоничность» и «уравновешенность» вин.

 Золотые медали на европейском винном конкурсе

Вина «Литтл Бьюти» решили закрепить свой прошлогодний успех на винном конкурсе Mundus Vini International Wine Awards в 2011 году, и вновь завоевали двойное золото: одна золотая медаль досталась «Литтл Бьюти» Совиньон Блан 2010, а другая – «Литтл Бьюти» Пино Нуар также 2010 года. И это потрясающий результат, если учесть, что нашими соперниками были и европейские производители… Но мы справились! Хорошо было принято и вино «Литтл Бьюти» Гевюрцтраминер 2010, которое завоевало серебряную медаль

Серебро и бронза на конкурсах в Азии

На состоявшемся недавно международном конкурсе The Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Challenge «Литтл Бьюти» была среди новозеландских компаний, получивших больше всего наград. Всего ей удалось завоевать 7 медалей на этом авторитетнейшем в Азии конкурсе. «Литтл Бьюти» Гевюрцтраминер 2009 года завоевал серебро, а бронзовые медали достались «Литтл Бьюти» Совиньон Блан 2010, «Литтл Бьюти» Пино Нуар 2010, «Литтл Бьюти» Драй Рислинг 2010 и «Литтл Бьюти» Пино Гри 2010. Также вина «Литтл Бьюти» получили награды за сочетаемость с подобраными блюдами региональной кухни (Сушими, Курица Кунг Пао, Пекинская утка)

Приз на конкурсе в Великобритании

Еще одна замечательная новость для вин «Литтл Бьюти», которые были оценены на престижном винном конкурсе Harpers Wine & Spirits Design Awards в 2010 году и получили приз ‘Best Overall New Product’ за новизну. В судейском комитете были эксперты из разных областей, и за неигристые вина было выдано всего пять призов, и мы очень гордимся тем, что один из них достался нам. Более того, мы стали единственной компанией из Новой Зеландии, удостоившейся такой чести.

Золото и серебро на европейском винном конкурсе

Вина «Литтл Бьюти» завоевали золотую и серебряную медали на крупнейшем европейском винном конкурсе Mundus Vini International Wine Awards. Всего в конкурсе участвовали 5 800 вин, из которых наградами были отмечены 1 750. От Новой Зеландии было заявлено 33 марки, и 15 и них получили призы. И из этих пятнадцати две медали достались винам «Литтл Бьюти»! Это были «Литтл Бьюти» Пино Гри 2009 и «Литтл Бьюти» Гевюрцтраминер 2009.

Серебро и Бронза на конкурсе в Азии

На авторитетном винном конкурсе The Hong Kong International Wine Challenge вина «Литтл Бьюти» завоевали одну серебряную и три бронзовые медали: за «Литтл Бьюти» Пино Гри 2009 и за «Литтл Бьюти» Совиньон Блан 2009, «Литтл Бьюти» Драй Рислинг 2009 и «Литтл Бьюти» Гевюрцтраминер 2009 соответственно.

Награда за инновацию

Ежегодно в Великобритании происходит отбор и награждение вин, чьей отличительной чертой является использование при их производстве инновационных технологий. И вина «Литтл Бьюти» заслуженно получили награду за использование новейших технологий отслеживании климатических условий в винограднике.
