Fine Wine Delivery Co., 60 Constellation Dr, Mairangi Bay



Ticket Information:

  • Adult: $25.00

You’re invited to an Auckland exclusive tasting of the the Exceptional 2014 Gimblett Gravels Reds – under one roof!

It’s our great pleasure to host the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowers Association for the second straight year - and this year we’ve convinced the Gimblett Gravels wineries to attend a second tasting evening at our Constellation Drive SuperStore due to overwhelming demand!

The debate has been raging in wine circles - which was better 2013 or 2014 vintage in Hawkes Bay? Any answer is of course shrouded with caveats and sub-clauses, but one thing is for sure, 2014 is another superlative year for red wines in the Hawke’s Bay.

The best thing is how wonderfully drinkable the 2014s are, with plenty of ripe fruit and tannins from the extra heat accumulation – most winemakers agree that it was the finest Syrah year they can remember, great for the Gimblett Gravels’ international reputation.

If you’re a red wine lover, you need to get a ticket to one of these two tastings. To taste nearly 40 of the Gimblett Gravels finest reds in one place (including delicious matched cheeses from Kapiti). It is an opportunity too good to pass up!

The tasting is only at FWD Co and you will be set up to make some wise personal buying decisions around your favourite 2014 GG Reds.

Wineries include: Babich, Craggy Range, Crossroads, Esk Valley, Mission Estate, Sacred Hill, Squawking Magpie, Stonecroft, Te Awa, Trinity Hill, Vidal and Villa Maria!
