Kahurangi Estate & Port Wine – Published 15.03.16

th best Port in the world. It is a huge wine with a purple colour so deep it is almost black in the glass and aromas rich and sweet, packed with incredibly intense dark berry fruits, blackberry, boysenberries, layers of chocolate and hints of cigar tobacco it is a wonderfully complex wine. The flavours are equally rich and sweet black berry fruits with a touch of chocolate-dipped liquorice and very dry powdery tannins in the finish but with a nice twist of acidity to make your mouth water for more. Winter is on its way so it is time to think about stocking up on some wonderful Port wines to enjoy in front of the fire this winter and while the premium Croft Vintage Port is expensive there are much cheaper yet equally delicious and warming Ports available.  ]]>

I have been writing a regular wine column for The Nelson Mail newspaper since 2000.

Unfortunately the column space is not big enough to include my thoughts on all of the many wines I taste. Hopefully this blog will fix that. It also gives me somewhere to archive the many columns I write. I will also include some favourite recipes from my dearly beloved who loves cooking and of course because wine and food simply go together. I will also point you in the direction of upcoming events and websites I think are great. Enjoy, Neil
