All wines are tasted blind. If, af­ter dis­cus­sion, the tasters do not agree on a star rat­ing, the wine will re­ceive the rat­ing given by the ma­jor­ity but dis­sent­ing com­ments will be in­cluded in the wine notes. The scores of wine­maker judges can­not ex­ceed those of other judges.


All wines en­tered in Cuisine tastings must be read­ily avail­able at the time of pub­li­ca­tion. How­ever, high de­mand and a six-week lead time be­tween tastings and pub­li­ca­tion can af­fect avail­abil­ity. If you can­not find the wines, con­tact the win­ery or dis­trib­u­tor di­rect.


Sup­pli­ers are asked to pro­vide a re­tail price range for all wines en­tered in tastings. Prices do vary be­tween vine­yard and low-to-high vol­ume out­lets and can­not, there­fore, be guar­an­teed. All prices are quoted in $NZ.
