NZ Wine Week Tasting Pack
Anyone who knows anything about New Zealand wine knows that our sassy Sauvignon Blanc is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to outstanding wine production. In this three-bottle tasting pack we celebrate some of the unsung heroes of New Zealand wine varietals with a creamy Chardonnay, a sumptuous Syrah and a killer Cabernet.
Purchase this pack during New Zealand wine week (8-21 February 2021) and you’ll also get to join one of our virtual guided tasting sessions with our California-based New Zealand wine expert. Sessions will run on Friday 12 February and Thursday 18 February at 6pm PST.
The three wines included in the pack and tasting are:
A beautiful Mills Reef Chardonnay from their 2014 vintage, arguably one of the best, if not the best vintage for New Zealand chardonnay. This unforgettable wine proves without a doubt that age and beauty are absolutely compatible.
The Syrah we have chosen is the 2016 Clearview Cape Kidnappers Syrah. Exhibiting floral violet notes, black and white pepper, subtle spicy anise and licorice oak, it’s the perfect match for venison, beef or lamb.
To round out our sampler is the exquisite 2016 Vidal El Legado Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, a truly world class wine with intensity, texture and depth of flavor. Hailing from the infamous Gimblett Gravels you’ll enjoy notes of cassis, black olives and ground black pepper. This wine is ready to drink now until 2035.
