The week in pictures


New Zealand wine enthusiasts converged on New Zealand House in Haymarket to hear from NZ wine ambassador Bob Campbell MW, who was hosting the first ‘Journey of New Zealand Wine’ course.

Held in conjunction with The New Zealand Wine Cellar, the one-day course was billed as a celebration of the finest food and drink from New Zealand.

The ever-affable Campbell discussed subjects ranging from New Zealand wine-making history to the implementation of sustainable viticulture and the country’s rapid growth in wine production.

Campbell also tipped guests off on what he believed could be New Zealand’s next ‘breakout’ white grape: Albariño.


The Journey of New Zealand Wine course included three flights of wine showcasing the range of varieties, blends and styles that New Zealand has to offer.

Among the highlights were a 2010 Seresin Viognier and a Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay 2012.

Campbell also chose to pit to New Zealand Pinot Noir heavyweights against each other: 2014 Ata Rangi from Martinborough and Felton Road Bannockburn from Central Otago.
