Anthony & Janet`s NZ Travelogue – For Anyone interested in our explorations, an insight into NZ travel and winegrowing, a look at sustainability, vineyard management, emerging styles, the bumper 2008 vintage sauvignon blanc, icon wines and … well, other stuff along the way.
“So we`re off to New Zealand courtesy of New Zealand Winegrowers. Our big prize as NZW`s Independent Wine Merchant Of The Year. We couldn`t be more excited.
We decided to get to business right away so on the plane over we tried the Forrest Estate Pinot Noir 2007 with the duck, and later, on the second leg from Lax, the Villa Maria Cab Merlot 2007 with lamb. These were two of a fine selection offered by Air New Zealand who clearly take both their wines and food very seriously. It is not for nothing they won Best Airline 2010! Their wine selection is a vigorous one involving a prestigious panel of wine experts, and their food operation, second to none, is overseen by top chefs Rex Morgan, Geoff Scott and Peter Gordon. Moreover, well done Air New Zealand for producing a fantastic wine guide. A great promotional effort for New Zealand wines and a credit to the airline. ”
