"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”

Kia ora neighbours, thousands of people crammed into Western Springs on Sunday night for Friday Jams - which meant throngs of drunk people filling the streets afterwards, with reports of people urinating on people's property, obstructing traffic and loud and antisocial behaviour.

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?
In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.
The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.
We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
