Springtime in New Zealand

A whistle-stop tour en route to Oz to take in some key producers, taste new wines and pick up on the latest gossip!

It's madness to fly all the way to the other side of the world and not to drop in on 'the neighbours'. Packing in more than ten visits in one day was a crazy schedule, but I also got to finalise blends of some of our most important wines and even take in some new addresses.
