Tales Of Vineyards And Vintners

Four days are not enough time to fully immerse yourself in the land of the long white cloud, writes Kari Gislason for Adelaide Now. Gislason spends two of her three nights visit at the “outlandishly beautiful” Matakauri Lodge located on Lake Wakatipu. Over a glass of pinot noir in Queenstown with Granty Taylor, who is known as one of the pioneers of the area’s wine industry, Gislason and Granty “talk wine and then rugby and then wine again.” Gislason also visits Northburn Station, “the sheep farm and winery of the charmingly New Zealandish Tom Pinckney.” “I want to tell [Pinckney] that his wines exhibit the quiet, wry qualities of his personality. Every wine reveals the story of its making, but also the story of its maker.”
