"Kia ora – Heidi Brittenden from New World Te Kuiti 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 Allan Scott Rosé 2019. It was personally quite hard to pick one standout wine from the list, but this rosé is so delicious, and I usually don’t even like rosé! It’s a well- balanced dry wine that is also refreshing and fruity with hints of strawberry. If you’re new to rosé, this is a perfect drink to enjoy with friends on a sunny afternoon outdoors.”

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.

Today we welcomed Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern and Te Puhi Ariki Ngāwai hono i te po Paki, representing King Tūheitia to campus to mark the beginning of the construction of our new marae and student hub, The Pā.

This ceremony, guided by leaders of Waikato Tainui and the Kīngitanga, infused two traditions: breaking the ground, and embedding the mauri for The Pā. Breaking the ground in this way signals that construction of this major facility will be underway shortly, and the embedding of a whatu, a mauri stone, symbolises the beating heart of the new university wharenui and the broader complex of The Pā.

The Pā will become a welcoming and vibrant part of the Hamilton campus, with food outlets, social and learning spaces, and a new University marae. Site preparations will begin later this month, with construction starting in March 2020. The Pā is set for completion by February 2022.
