The New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition has been running for 15 years and is hosted by the Canterbury A&P Association, in conjunction with the Canterbury A&P Show. It is open to all Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Viognier and other wine varieties including Muscat, Verdeldo, Arneis and Sauvignon Gris, made in an aromatic style from any internationally recognised region.
The competition receives 400+ entries from national and international wine makers.
