"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”

Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.
The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.
The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $332.5m to run over 25 years, of which $227.5m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.

A lot of hard work is needed to achieve these top spots. A big congratulations to Cheryl Wright for being our top sales consultant, and the top lister for November went to Aaron Johnstone. A wonderful effort.
