Discover a new wine at New World

New World Kaikohe

"Kia ora –Terry from New World Kaikohe 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 Champion Shiraz/Syrah Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier. I really enjoy it because it’s so well balanced. It has smooth peppery notes but then a sweet subtle floral finish. You’ll definitely be wanting another sip or two!” 

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.
