WBW#17 Has Been Announced: New Zealand Reds

The first Wine Blogging Wednesday of 2006 has been announced. For next month's virtual wine tasting party, participating bloggers will all be reviewing red wines from New Zealand, thanks to the guidance of host The Cork Dork. Known primarily for its Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand is increasingly becoming a force in the world of Pinot Noir. There are other reds grown there as well, in smaller quantities, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Zinfandel among others, but many do not make it stateside. See you on January 4th with your Red Kiwi!

Yes I've also heard that New Zealand is becoming known as a Pinot Noir producer. I'm keen to try more kiwi wines. Over the past year I've taken to purchasing more aussie reds in the medium price range and the overall quality has been good to excellent.
