New Zealand Explorer Case - Half Dozen


New Zealand has a relatively young wine industry that took off when stainless-steel vats and modern winemaking techniques came to the fore in the late 1980s.

Cool-climate purity and fruit focus are the hallmarks of New Zealand wines. Best known perhaps for Marlborough Sauvignon, and we regard our own label as a cracking example of energy and balance, you’ll also enjoy the fuller, spicier tones of Pinot Gris from the North Island alongside the svelte, sleek style of Greenhough’s Riesling. The latter’s fresh apple notes dominate on the nose and follow through on the palate, this core of fruit provides more weight than you might expect.

The historic ‘Gimblett Gravels’ of North Island were identified early on as a free-draining terroir that would suit Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and Syrah has also done well here. Forging ahead however has been the proliferation of top quality Pinot Noir from the South Island, particularly Central Otago, which has rightfully earned its place on the world stage and often gives Burgundy a run for its money.

Please note - vintages may vary from those listed below.

Important - Please note


We aim to deliver UK Mainland orders within 5 working days.


We usually operate a signature service on all deliveries. However at present, If you select ‘Addressee only – obtain signature’ at checkout then the delivery driver will place the delivery on your doorstep, knock/ring and then take a couple of steps back. They will wait for the door to be answered and then ask for the recipient’s name, to ensure the delivery is being made correctly, then manually enter the name into their system.


Goods can be left unsigned for but you must specify this during checkout, with instructions on where to leave the goods should you be out.


Any goods that have been left according to instruction and not delivered over the recipient's threshold are left at the sender's risk.


We always do our very best to achieve our stated delivery times but please note we can not be responsible for circumstances beyond Tanners control including, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions and supplier and carrier difficulties.
