All the medal winners of 2021

More than 140 wineries from New Zealand and overseas entered over 1,100 wines into the 19th annual New World Wine Awards for wines retailing under $25. Find out who won the medals…

The wines were judged using the same internationally recognised 100-point system used at other leading wine shows, which benchmarks entries against what a perfect wine should be like. A Gold medal wine in these awards is a superb example of its type and you can hold it to the same expectations as a Gold medal wine from other respected awards.

A focus on affordable and available wines means every entry must retail for $25 or less and have plenty of stock available for sale – at least 4,000 bottles for popular varieties, or 1,800 bottles for emerging varieties.

All wines were blind tasted. This means the judges were never aware of any brands and never saw any bottles. They judged the wine in the glass on the day, knowing only the variety, vintage and country of origin.

All the medal-winning wines are shown below. We hope you enjoy browsing the amazing breadth of medal winners and you can also find out more about the Top 50 drops on our Wine Finder.

The Top 50 Gold medal-winning wines are available in all liquor-selling New World stores nationwide until 7 November 2021 or while stocks last. However wines do not have to be stocked in New World stores to be entered into the competition so not all of the medal winners listed below are available at New World stores.

New World Wine Awards Top 50 wines priced under $25 until 7 November 2021. After this time the retail price may vary.
