NZ pinot noir strikes gold again

New Zealand pinot noir struck gold again at this year's International Wine and Spirit Competition in Britain.

More than half of the nine gold medals awarded to New Zealand went to pinot noir wines.

A Central Otago wine, the Valli Gibbston 2010 pinot noir took the top trophy, continuing a run of New Zealand successes in that award.
