Discover a new wine at New World

New World Porirua & Thorndon

"Kia ora – James Lough from New World Porirua 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 Tohu Single Vineyard Riesling and for many reasons! First, it’s delicious with a zingy acidity. Secondly, it has a great story - all wine should start a conversation and the people behind this wine and their governance of the land give you plenty of that. Lastly, the wine sums up what the New World Wine Awards is all about: helping customers discover new wines that surprise and delight.” And Bob Dunkerly from New World Thorndon’s pick is the Stoneleigh Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. “It’s an excellent wine, with delicious stone fruit flavours. It’s very approachable for anyone wanting to give Chardonnay a try.”

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.
