THORNDON WINE CLUB | SMITH & SHETH WITH STEVE SMITH MW
When Master of Wine Steve Smith and Texan investor Brian Sheth met in 2014, it was more than a bottle of Chardonnay that they shared, but also a dream. A dream of wines made from the best sites possible, pairing location with the varieties and styles which best suited them. Where the French and indeed wine afficionados the world over refer to 'terroir' as being the ultimate influencer over their wines, Smith and Sheth prefer to use the Maori word 'Turangawaewae.' This is our place to stand in the world. Like terroir it also refers to the connection between a place and the people that love it, live in it and work it. Their wines then are all bottled with the vineyard of provenance clearly and proudly marked, as not just being carefully selected as a place where fine wine may be made, but also to indicate that magical sense of Turangawaewae that makes each so different. To take us through the range of Smith + Sheth's new release wines we are proud to host none other than Steve Smith MW himself. Steve is an icon of the New Zealand wine industry, becoming one of our first Masters of Wine and also leading Craggy Range into becoming one of the most highly regarded wineries in the country. This tasting is sure to be very informative as well as taking a delicious first look at a range of superb wines.
