CLEARVIEW BLUSHING OVER BRAGATO TROPHY
This ‘purpose-built’ full bodied wine is made from red grapes found at Clearview’s coastal Te Awanga, Hawke’s Bay vineyards and the rare grape, Chambourcin, a French hybrid that is rarely grown in New Zealand.
In recent years, the Black Reef Blush has won gold at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards in addition to silver and bronze awards in the New Zealand International Wine Awards and the Liquorland Top 100. It has also featured well at the Hawke’s Bay A & P Society Wine Awards.
"This wine has an opulent taste of raspberry and cherry that’s balanced by a long refreshing finish,” says Tim Turvey, co owner and founder of the winery that also boasts a restaurant.
"It is the essence of spring, a constant favourite in the restaurant matching the lunch dishes so well, particularly our platter, the seafood and salads,” adds fellow proprietor, Helma van den Berg.
Bragato 2013 competition chairman of judges Olly Masters said “This year was one of the strongest trophy line-ups across all categories the judges have ever seen". The competition had 495 entries with 51 gold medals, 107 silver and 181 bronze medals being awarded.
The Trophies were presented at the Bragato Dinner one of the highlights of the Romeo Bragato Conference.
