Judging New Zealand

Being invited to judge at Air New Zealand's Wine Awards was not just an honour, but a great opportunity to learn more about this nation's fabulous wines with some of its experts.

It was crazy to fly all that way and not visit some of our growers, so I went out a week early to visit with some of our key producers in Marlborough and Central Otago to catch up on gossip and retaste the 2017 vintage.
