Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options 2013 – Round Three

By October 4, 2013No Comments
The MC for the third round of the Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options, Rex Ormandy of Vino Fino in Christchurch wasn’t interrupted by earthquakes this time and conducted another fun night at Drylands restaurant on Friday 4 October. Rex has the resources of the largest independent wine retail shop in Christchurch at hand, and he put up an excellent selection of wines that was reported to have gone down really well.

Following are the major results of Round Three of the Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options, with a list of the wines served. I list the scores and placings of the teams on the night, and their overall standings after three rounds, as provided by committee members Bec Wiffen and Helen Morrison:
