A Toast to the “New Classics”

British wine writer, John Hunter, educates his readers in the (remarkably brief) history of NZ wine. Urging them to cast aside any lingering associations with Australia – “it’s a darn sight closer to Antarctica” – Hunter recommends Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, and predicts a bright future for our Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. His personal pick is the 2002 Awatere Sauvignon Blanc: “a beautifully-crafted wine and a classic of its type.”
