South Island, NZ
The great Jancis Robinson wrote a great piece on a Japanese family making great wines in New Zealand, and with all the recent NZ releases from the LCBO, I was inspired.
Travelling is the dream. And I think I really want to visit New Zealand. There is a genuine spirit of innovation and excitement in wine going on in that part of the world. My father was there 2 years ago, and he came away very impressed.
South Island is a gem. Malborough, Central Otago...the jewels of New World pinot noir. The 20+ hour flight time should be worth it.
Who wants to come with me?
