Zealand Chardonnay), as well Silver Awards for the
Declaration Merlot 2007 and Declaration Syrah 2009. The Declaration

judges, DWWA chair Steve Spurrier said, and we have the best judges
in the World." Over 200 wine merchants, sommeliers, journalists and
authors, including 54 Masters Of Wine and 11 Master Sommeliers took
part in the judging.

success at the DWWA reinforces our quality status on the world wine
stage across a wide range of wine styles. We are delighted with the
results and particularly pleased to see recognition for Chardonnay
a variety we strongly endorse."
The prestigious award adds to the impressive list of accolades
that the winery continues to achieve. Pask wines have been awarded
trophies and gold medal success in the UK, Australia, Asia, United
States, Canada, Europe and New Zealand, across a range of varietals
and wine styles.

established its wines as one of the top choices for wine drinkers
across the globe.
