New Zealand Update

If your favourite glass of wine is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc you may be in for a bit of a surprise. According to the Drinks Business:

"Regions in the middle of the country – including Wairarapa, Marlborough, Nelson, and North Canterbury – were impacted the most this year, and are down over 20% on 2020

While the 2021 harvest was smaller than hoped for, the quality of the vintage has been described as “exceptional” throughout the country’s various wine regions."

I am already starting to see classic household brands up near the ten pound mark. So my advice is:

1. Find an alternative - such as Picpoul de Pinet or cool climate Chilean Sauvignon.

2. Stock up now for the winter if you see a deal.
