Discover a new wine at New World

New World Kaikohe

"Kia ora โ€“Terry from New World Kaikohe here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this yearโ€™s New World Wine Awards is the Champion Shiraz/Syrah Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier. I really enjoy it because itโ€™s so well balanced. It has smooth peppery notes but then a sweet subtle floral finish. Youโ€™ll definitely be wanting another sip or two!โ€ย 

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

The driver did not appear to be breaking any laws but farming experts say the calves should've been covered for good taste. What do you think - is this just the reality of farming or should the public be protected from such sights?
