So for week 23 we’re coming back to a new world classic. There’s plenty of grapes that are doing great down in New Zealand, but two in particular have become the country’s standard bearers in the world of wine. Nearly every wine drinker in the world has had a Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc in their life. The other is our NWTW, Pinot Noir.
Grown to great effect in both North and South Islands, but most wines in shops are from the South areas of Marlborough and Central Otago. I’ll be trying wines from both hopefully (bank account dependent!).
Here are my picks this week:
The Ned Pinot Noir, Marlborough
Sainsbury’s Central Otago Pinot Noir, Taste The Difference
Villa Maria Cellar Selection, Marlborough
£11.99 (25% off in store)
Two Rivers ‘Awatere Selection’, Pinot Noir
Mud House, Central Otago, 2010
Remember, these are just guides. Keep your eyes open for all the deals at your local shops. There’s usually quite a few knocking around on Kiwi “brands”.
