NZ Wine Review
I'm no wine expert but for the last 3-4 years I've been thoroughly enjoying wines (especially reds) and have had numerous attempts of further developing my knowledge online but struggled to find anything relevant to my current understanding.
This podcast is fantastic for anyone from a beginner Wine taster to what seems and expert/advanced level with the quality guests involved.
Would love to hear some interviews / stories from some of the larger wineries / labels. Stoneleigh or Church Road perhaps! Thanks
Great content and smart
