American and Australian Imports by Procure


The marketplace for New Zealand wine drinkers has never been better due to the wide range of quality and value imports being brought into the country. Wines from diverse countries, once thought to be too rare or odd in style, or too expensive have become quite commonplace, as the world increases trading across borders. The Procure Liquor distribution company of Jonty Hamer and Misha Taylor are among the most progressive, especially considering their size of operation. They bring in a very strong range of affordable American and Australian wines. I review a selection of new releases here.
