The other week we had the pleasure of Ben Glover from Zephyr wines pop in for a tasting. Based in Marlborough they produce a full range of wines from the family farm in Dillons Point, which was converted to vines in 1985, firstly being planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir, then further adding Gewürztraminer in 1991. The Glovers continued enthusiasm prompted them to launch their own brand Zephyr, and Ben came back to become winemaker, after working at other New Zealand wineries such as Wither Hills.

I think I may have started a blog post with this exact statement before, but it still rings true and that is when you think of German wines your thoughts are instantly drawn to Blue Nun, Black Tower and the bad medium sweet wines of the 80’s, but these days they are anything but that!
