What I’m drinking:
My own tastes run to Felton Road, Aurum and Akarua pinot noirs from Central Otago. The Australian reds and South Australian rieslings are right at the top of my list as well. And I’ll never forget the 100-year- old Seppeltsfield port I tasted in the Barossa. Failing something as exquisite as that, after a good winter evening’s meal with friends, I like to end the night with one of my own ruby ports. I love the ritual around drinking port. Delicate little port sippers were first made in the 17th century and I’m doing my bit to bring them back into vogue by importing them from China and selling them through DC Wines in Cromwell.
