New Zealand's finest Syrah is only made in years when the grapes are at their best. Hence why in 15 years there has only been 8 vintages. I had the privilege of being one of a select group of wine adorers who flew down to the Hawkes Bay to taste the latest (2015) vintage.
Hamish McGowan, winemaker for Angus The Bull visited NZ recently. I got the opportunity to attend a tasting & have a chat to the man himself about how Angus The Bull came to be!
Lunch that followed could of course could only be one thing - STEAK!
The Graham Norton/Invivo collaboration is a true partnership in every sense of the word....and a very successful one at that! I talked to Rob & Tim at the launch of the 4th GN vintage Launch & got a first look at the very funny (and now infamous) blending video.
Allan Scott has a new wine and it's a Gewurtz! This wine is floral yet subtle with a punch of lychee. Perfect to be enjoyed with Asian food or just enjoyed with friends. So easy drinking & moreish. This wine reminds me of summer, quite a feat on a VERY rainy Auckland day.....are we nearly there yet?!
