French, Italian and Spanish Wines from Vintners N.Z.

As one of this country’s leading distributors, Vintners N.Z. has an excellent range of imported wines in its portfolio, and classical wines from France, Italy and Spain are ‘musts’. Here, I review a selection of new releases, from ‘La Vieille Ferme’ and ‘Nicolas Perrin’ in the Rhone, France, ‘Umani Ronchi’ and ‘Parusso’ from d’Abruzzo and Piedmont in Italy respectively, and ‘Bodegas Borsao’ and ‘Telmo Rodriguez’ from Campo de Borja and Rioja respectively.
