Ri­fle­mans Takes Aim

Dish - - BY THE GLASS -

Sa­cred Hill’s Ri­fle­mans Hawke’s Bay Chardon­nay 2016 ($66) re­cently took out not only the tro­phy for Cham­pion White Wine of the Show at the Six Na­tions Wine Chal­lenge, but was also named the show’s Cham­pion Wine. It beat 600 other wines pri­vately sub­mit­ted by the top wine crit­ics from New Zealand, Aus­tralia, South Africa, Chile, Canada and the US. Th­ese judges are asked to list their top 100 lo­cal wines for en­try, and it’s the only wine awards where en­try is by in­vi­ta­tion only.
