Cable Bay wine in a league of its own (NZ)
Evaluating your Waiheke neighbour’s wine is fraught with problems. Be too critical and you risk being frozen out; too effusive and you’re accused of favouritism and sucking up. The vineyards of Cable Bay surround me, and their well-reviewed stunning vineyard restaurant and cellar door is within easy walking distance. The wines have been familiar to me for a number of years and, without prejudice, I can now confirm this is another Waiheke producer who is through the tentative years and is now producing consistently great wines, writes John Hawkesby in The New Zealand Herald.
