SOHO’s Black Collection Havana Pinot Noir 2015 has won not just a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge (IWC, London), but also the Trophy for Best Marlborough Pinot Noir and the highly coveted Trophy for Best New Zealand Pinot Noir, taking Havana’s total medal tally to an incredible 5 Gold Medals and 2 Trophies for this vintage alone. The IWC is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition.
“We are absolutely thrilled, especially as these grapes are from my father’s vineyard in Marlborough. With SOHO I have created a very non-traditional wine brand, uniquely with a real marketing focus on the consumer. I have always said wine is about the end user and that is certainly the essence of SOHO. Even though we challenge the traditional norms, we have the greatest respect for the winemaking process and ultimately put our heart and soul into bringing you the best wine we possibly can. This award is true recognition of that” says Rachael Carter, Managing Director of SOHO Wines.
