Two New Zealand wines have won top honours at the Sydney international wine competition.

The overall winner and best white wine was Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels chardonnay 2012 from Hawke's Bay.

The best red wine was the Villa Maria Single Vineyard Southern Clays pinot noir 2010, which was runner-up in the best wine category.

In both cases, the wines came to the fore when judged with appropriately matched food - the cornerstone of the competition's judging process.
