The best wine in Auckland
Here is our pick of Auckland’s best homegrown wines.
We’re a country famous for its wines - between Marlborough, Martinborough and Central Otago, we’ve got the grape-growing game sorted.
But our biggest city, Auckland, also rates as great wine-growing country.
Here is our pick of five of the best Auckland-grown wines:
Kumeu River Chardonnay - Kumeu
If Chardonnay is your preferred drop, look no further.
Crafted by Master of Wine Michael Brajkovich, this delicious peachy wine is perfect for a crisp autumn afternoon.
Man OWar ‘Pinque’ - Waiheke Island
If nothing else, this rose´ makes the ferry worthwhile!
The Provenc¸al styled ‘Pinque’ is crisp and creamy, and is laden with strawberry and watermelon flavours - what more could you want?
Villa Maria ‘Ihumatao Verdelho’ - Mangere
A little bit of Spain in south Auckland.
Verdelho is a dry white wine, which is beautiful on its own and even better when enjoyed with tapas or freshly shucked oysters. Bottoms up!
Puriri Hills Mokoroa - Clevedon
For something a little bit special, the Mokoroa is a must-have.
Clevedon grown, Puriri Hills’ range of luxury reds will make the others at your table seeing red.
Cable Bay Pinot Gris - Waiheke Island
With a glass of Cable Bay Pinot Gris in hand, you’ll have the best looking date in the place.
Fruit and spice (and everything nice) make this little beauty a winner.
