Yes, I'm a little late to the train, but at least I didn't miss the party. This month's Wine Blogging Wednesday, the Web's virtual iwine tasting event had bloggers all over the world drinking red wines from New Zealand. This month's host, the Cork Dork, has recently (ok, not TOO recently, but work with me here) posted the roundup of this event with links to the reviews from all thirty-one bloggers who tasted Kiwi reds and lived to blog about it. Lots of Pinot Noir, much of it good was to be had, as well as some other reds mostly Merlots and blends from the Hawkes Bay region. If you're interested in these wines, I recommend checking out the coverage.
