Started with ‘The Crossroads’ chardonnay Hawkes Bay – abundance of tropical fruit – then Mt Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, Canterbury, crisp classic NZ.
Joe brought over a taster of Yealands Gruner Veltliner, Marlborough, very aromatic, lovely balance. NZ could do very well with Gruner. It went well with gratin of prawns and smoked haddock.
NZ fillet of lamb and sweet potato with Mt Beautiful Pinot Noir – Canterbury Cheviot hills and Willunga Shiraz Viognier Mclaren Vale. A lovely varied selection of antipodean wines.
