The gold medal winning wines vying for top honours at the 2015 Pier One Sydney Harbour NSW Wine Awards have been revealed.

This 20th annual NSW Wine Awards is indeed shaping up to be the most exciting to date, with the record number of entries resulting in 57 wines being awarded gold medals.

President of the NSW Wine Industry Association and Awards judge Tom Ward said, "Of the 872 wines entered, 456 wines were awarded a bronze, silver or gold medal. This represents a 52% success rate and really highlights the high quality of wines being produced throughout the State."

Indeed, gold medals were awarded to wines from no less than 11 of the State's wine regions: Canberra District – 2, Central Ranges – 2, Hilltops – 9, Hunter Valley – 28, Mudgee – 1, Murray Darling (NSW) – 1, New England – 1, Orange – 8, Riverina – 1, Southern Highlands – 2, Tumbarumba – 2

The producers of these wines have a lot to be happy about. As well as being in the running to receive one of the 17 coveted NSW Wine Awards Trophies, including the ultimate title of '2015 Pier One Sydney Harbour NSW Wine of the Year', they will also be invited to a reception at Government House called to honour this year's gold medal winners and the legends of the NSW wine industry.

Announcement of the Trophies will take place at the NSW Wine Awards Presentation Lunch at Pier One Sydney Harbour on Friday 30 October. The Lieutenant Governor of NSW, His Excellency The Honourable TF Bathurst AC and Mrs Bathurst will be attending the Presentation Lunch as guests of the NSW Wine Industry Association.
