The Dusky Sounds. It’s one of Fiordland’s largest fiords, a breeding playground for Fiordland Penguins, where Maori hunted Moa before Europeans arrived on the scene, where they reckon NZ’s first beer was brewed by Captain Cook and crew. It’s a great spot for a boat cruise or (if you’re fit enough) paddling a kayak around for a few days. There’s now even a wine label named after it. Dusky Sounds Chardonnay
Made by the gang that produce the Waipara Hills wines. Dusky’s 2022 Chardy is a blend of fruit from vineyards in the Waipara Valley region in north Canterbury.
A lovely juicy, fruit driven style of Chardonnay that won’t stretch the purse strings too far at this price. Ideal with white meats and fish dishes. Why not whip a bottle out with the roast chook this weekend?
