"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”

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.

In a nut shell

Some homes just have that ‘fits like a glove' feel. This classic Waimauku bungalow is just that.

The street appeal of this charming bungalow and mature landscaped garden is immediate. Step inside and experience the sense of home that comes from rich wooden floors, three comfortable bedrooms, a gorgeous family sized bathroom and the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace. With an open plan kitchen, dining area and cosy lounge that flows to the covered deck that in turn drops down to a private garden and large flat lawn, ideal for children and pets. Sit back, relax and enjoy the sun-drenched north west facing grounds - a prime position for summertime entertaining. Whilst very liveable as is, there is plenty of scope to add your own touches should you wish. CV $750,000.


The best bits

Nestled on a 1540m2 site with plenty of breathing space, off-street parking and room for a chicken run and vegetable gardens, perhaps even look into the opportunity of a minor dwelling.

Located within an easy walk to Waimauku's shopping precinct and also in zone for the popular Waimauku Primary/Intermediate School. Complete with the convenience of garaging/workshop, off street parking and the feeling of family in this popular Waimauku location.

Peace, privacy and perfect family living is what you will discover upon inspection of this character home. A must inspection in this rarely available price range!


Close proximity to: Riverhead, Kumeu, Coatesville, Huapai, Helensville, Taupaki, and Muriwai.

Recommended for those on the move from Greenhithe, Ponsonby, Herne Bay, Takapuna, Point Chevalier, Dairy Flat, Albany and Waitoki

Email hacks

Ronald from Massey

Over night I received an e-mail telling me that they (the person sending the email) had been watching me search and or use porn sites on the web.

They also said if I didn't log on to another site and purchase $750 worth of bit coins they would further hack me and post images of me accessing said sites. Problem is I don't go to such sites and I wouldn't know how to buy bit coins if I wanted to. I'll either find out or I wont I guess as they gave me 50 hours to make the purchase. As a self employed person I often get rubbish emails, some asking me to give money to a 10 year old squashed by an elephant, others telling me if I provide my bank account they can pay me the $40 million I've been left by and aunt I never heard of. I ignore them for the stupid attempt they are, all though some are getting more and more sophisticated and will suck even savvy people in. This one is different, its a direct threat, a direct attempt to extort. They even told me not to make a complaint as whoever I complain to wont be able to trace them any more than I would. So watch this space ill report it and report back on any developments, off to change all my passwords now.

When bags move like ballerinas

The Team from Auckland Museum

Ballerinas twist, turn and move so gracefully that they often seem other-worldly, but would you ever compare a ballerina to a bag?

Ballerinas twist, turn and move so gracefully that they often seem other-worldly, but would you ever compare a ballerina to a bag?

In our Carried Away: Bags Unpacked exhibition, artist Isaac Katzoff’s glass bag got itself a nickname of just that: the ballerina. The nickname was given after the bag hinted at graceful movement while it was under the spotlight in the photography studio - it's inner performer was at the ready.

Although the Museum holds many objet d’art (art objects), the beautiful photography and images of the collection are themselves works of art, as this image of Katzoff's bag here is. Museum photographers work behind the scenes to create images of objects that act as both documentation and art.

As Artweek Auckland comes to a close this weekend, we wanted to showcase just one of many of the wonderful objet d'art from within our Applied Arts & Design collection.

Come and see 'the ballerina' for yourself, alongside many other wonderful works of art at Carried Away: Bags Unpacked, on now and free with Museum entry.
