"Kia ora – Kapil Mathew from New World Te Puke here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Music Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a new one that I discovered thanks to their place on this year’s Top 50 list, and one I highly recommend others to try for themselves. I enjoy it because it has beautiful fresh aromas of pineapple and guava with a nice crisp finish of citrus and melon. I would pair this wine with spicy, grilled and seafood dishes - pop in and grab a bottle next time seafood is on the menu in your house.”
