Summergate WINE 100 Challenge Trophies:


Summergate Fine Wines & Spirit

Best Riesling Wine/Best White Wine/Best Wine of the Show

Fritz Haag Brauneberger Riesling Kabinett, Mosel (SC) 2013

There’s something especially compelling about Oliver Haag’s dried wines in 2013, a succulence to them that’s entirely unexpected. This is a prime example: It has crystalline, mineral-driven intensity typical of this steep, brown-slate vineyard, with delicate notes of lemon zest and herbs, and yet, it comes across as juicy, with a lasting flavor that sticks to the lips. -December 2014, Wine & Spirits.

Best French Wine

Joseph Mellot Tronsec, Pouilly Fume AOC (D) 2014

With 500 years of history, Joseph Mellot, family owned estate, has become a specialist in the production of Loire Valley wines. Pure expression of its terroir, Le Tronsec has predominant notes of minerals and citrus and exotic fruits aromas. 

Best Sauvignon Blanc

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2015

With an intense expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and bursting with distinct Awatere Valley aromas of snow pea, kaffir lime and gooseberry, the wine is powerful and refined, displaying vibrant grapefruit and subtle passionfruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and a balanced acidity. Enjoy up to 2 years after release.

Best Chilean Wine

Concha y Toro Don Melchor 2011

From a cool vintage in Chile’s Alto Maipo Valley, the 2011 Don Melchor presents a restrained and elegant, yet powerfully concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon. The old vines of Concha y Toro’s 127 hectare Puente Alto property offer fruit of unparalleled quality, producing a wine that can be enjoyed now or opened at its peak after 10-20 years of careful cellaring.
