Discover a new wine at New World

New World Melody's

"Kia ora – Cathy McCullum from New World Melody’s here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Madam Sass Central Otago Pinot Noir Rosé 2019. It’s the Champion Rosé for the second year in a row, and I love its gorgeous pale pink colour and aromas of fresh ripe strawberries, and of course its affordable price tag. It’s a drop enjoyed sitting out on the deck and sharing with friends over a delicious summer platter.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
