What I’m drink­ing:

NZ Life & Leisure - - Drinking Habits -

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.
