We love wine. Not just for the obvious reason...it's nice to drink something that has such a nuanced development. Everything about it's creation - from grape, soil and weather to treatment, ageing and barrel. It's real artisan stuff.
Wine tours in Marlborough are pretty easy and great fun. New Zealand doesn't have a long viticultural past - but my god, it will have a long future! Marlborough is regarded as the worlds greatest grower of Sauvignon Blanc and we tasted plenty of great stuff today (fortunately typing doesn't slur....).
