      Skype Tasting with Jason Stent Wine Maker at Paritua Hawkes Bay New Zealand.
      We were very excited by this tasting as we met Jason in NZ, at Paritua and have followed his wines with great interest. The Skype tasting added great value as he was in his tasting room and we were able to watch the sun come up behind him and reveal the vineyards. What a setting. After a brief introduction we started on the wines.
