Tasting wine down under from New Zealand!
Waipara Velley Reporting back, lakeside from Queenstown, New Zealand. A little run down on the wines I've tasted over the past few days, including Pyramid Valley, and standouts from the regional tastings from Mountford, The Crater Rim, Muddy Water, Ataahua, Main Divide, Terrace Edge, and might I add the ridiculously good 2004 Felton Road and 2005 Neudorf Rieslings I was lucky enough to share over dinner at Pegasus Bay Winery. Paul Greico, of New York's Terroir and Hearth restaurants was here in New Zealand celebrating the summer of Riesling and I was fortunate to share a table at dinner with a lovely set of Kiwi wine lovers. These folks know how to live!
