New Zealand Red
This stunning country might be home to ‘The Lord of the Rings’, though it is also king of the Pinot Noir, which is starting to rise in prominence on the global stage. Almost as if striving to secure bragging rights of the south Pacific, New Zealand red wine is making waves in the wine world, and has two key ingredients which are mouth-watering plums and cherries, ideal when paired with any red meat, particularly lamb dishes. Packed with character and charm, this country’s red wine is the perfect blend, which is fully deserving of world acclaim. A risk-free wine for any dinner party.
