"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!”

I can see it now ... a row of dead electric cars on the roadside after making the decision to do a road trip.
Along comes a petrol fueled vehicle with the means to bring to live the electric cars.
Silly? I think not😄😄😄
