Small but perfect
Collaboration Wines’ Julianne (Julz) Brogden’s first baby has arrived – and so has her latest vintage. It’s a stellar small batch of wines you should cellar and drink when they have some age on them. Julz, a winemaker for 23 years, works with a small group of growers in Hawke’s Bay and specialises in chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux red blends. Wines start at $27 online and in fine wine shops, collaborationwines.co.nz.
