Laithwaites Hearty Aussie Reds for New Zealand


Laithwaites, one of the world’s most successful wine home delivery merchants, has been operating in New Zealand since 2015. Their success is due to a number of factors, mainly that the team specifically select wines that are deemed particularly suited to each market they are servicing. Often, many of the wines are exclusive to Laithwaites, making their portfolio unique. The offerings for New Zealand are very strong with hearty Australian reds a feature. The more traditional, ripe and sweet-fruited styles have always been popular in this country, as they are not what are made locally. Here, I review a new selection of such reds. www.laithwaites.co.nz
