NZ Wine

I attended the NZ Wine trade tasting in Manchester last week.
New Zealand wine is very fond to me due to the time that we spent there last year.
The tasting was excellent and I must have tried dozens of Sauvignon Blancs.
An excellent Pinot Noir taste tour of the whole country was very innteresting. Also the table was free pour rather than asking for samples so it is more relaxed. Pinot noir really is a grape that soaks up the atmoshpere of where it is planted so the varied regions of NZ produce radically different styles of Pinot Noir. All excellent!
