Now that the sample cupboard is nearly bare, and the Wine Ark cabinet has a few holes, It’s time to think about wines to buy.
So, inspire me. What wine and beer have you been buying?
On the beer front, I’ve been working through the NZ Hops Challenge case over the past week which is fun work.

There’s the usual flow of Mountain Culture specials (I emptied many cans of the Back to Cali WCIPA over Christmas), plus the new White Bay WCIPA for good measure.
Otherwise, I bought some Larmander Bernier Saignee to drink on holidays (great rosé that), some Equipo Navazos Navazos-Niepoort flor aged palomino non-sherry, and relented and bought a case of 2017 Raymond Lafon (as I’m selling my 09s).
I’ve been thinking lately that I don’t have enough 2019 birth year wines in the cellar so keen for suggestions.
What about you? What have you been buying, drinking and enjoying lately?
