Three New Imported Reds from Procure Liquor

It’s a healthy sign when wines roll over to new vintages. Misha Taylor and Jonty Hamer of the Procure Liquor distribution company take great care in selecting wines that will appeal not only in taste, but in price for the New Zealand consumer. Their understanding of the market has resulted in their choices selling through regularly. Here, I review new vintages of three red wines, one French and two from Italy. All three offer a completely different flavour profile and mouthfeel to the fruit-driven styles which are predominant here. They all share a sense of earthy complexity and savoury interest, as well as drier textures.
