I’ve lost count of how many lawyers I’ve met who tell me they have a vineyard and make wine, when they actually pay a consultant to come down and get their hands dirty instead.  John Porter is not one of those lawyers.  He’s been a hands-on winegrower and winemaker, since planting his vineyard in 1992. Sales from his ‘Kereru’ gris will assist their native bush and wetland restoration initiative. Dry, quartz-like, with hints of nashi, sake-like characters, and hints of manuka honey on the finish, it’s delish.
Sip with: teriyaki salmon.
