"Kia ora – Andrew Watson from New World Blenheim 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 Kingston Estate Clare Valley Shiraz 2018. Shiraz is a slightly sweet bold and fruity style, it’s more robust than Pinot Noirs but not heavy like Cab Sauv’s if you’re looking for the perfect balanced red. I find the plum notes very appealing and while this wine is young it’s still robust, and with a couple of years cellaring it will be a fantastic drop.
