  • 2014 SENSES SAUVIGNON BLANC

    TROPHY & TOP GOLD - 2014 SENSES SAUVIGNON BLANC
    2014 Margaret River Wine Show
    The Trophy for the Best Sauvignon Blanc, Watershed's 2014 Senses Sauvignon Blanc, was made even more significant by the fact that our wine was the ONLY wine awarded GOLD in this category.  The next best two wines were awarded Silver medals.  The gap in quality in the eyes of the judging panel in this category was therefore immense.

    This wine has now been awarded two major Trophies in its first two wine shows, the first having been received at the 2014 Hobart International Wine Show where at least eight New Zealand brands also attended.  As New Zealand is world renowned for its Sauvignon Blancs, the awards for our Senses Sauvignon Blanc attest to its outstanding quality.
