Terry spent a week in Central recently with his family and came across a new wine maker – Wet Jacket Wines. He loved their wines and recommends their Pinot Noir (outstanding), their Rose (a little sweeter than the French but the best he has found in New Zealand) and the Gewürztraminer (just magic in a bottle!). His discovery of 2017.
