Naked Hungry Traveller Wining In The Waipara

Awesome review of what Waipara has to offer on the Naked Hungry Traveller site. Check it out here. And to wet your appetite here is a wee bit on Mountford:

“I had a winning Waipara moment as I climbed to the summit of The Gradient vineyard at Mountford and was rewarded with a view to take my breath away. It wasn’t a steep climb, just breath-takingly lovely when I reached the top. The Southern Alps extended as far as I could see. The Waipara Valley nestled gently in between rounded sheep-studded hills. I caught an ozone infused whiff of the southern Pacific Ocean some ten kilometres away. The light was pure New Zealand, simultaneously suffused and brilliant.

Sipping from a glass of Mountford’s stunning ‘The Gradient’ Pinot Noir, I felt transported to heaven on Earth. One of the best wines I’ve had all year in one of the world’s special places all in one day does that to me.”
