Frizzell Wines hit summer notes with latest drops
Iconic New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell has launched the 2010 collection of Frizzell Wines just in time for summer following the success of the inaugural range launched last year.
The 2010 new release collection, produced by award winning wine maker Rod McDonald, includes a 2010 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, 2008 Hawkes Bay Chardonnay and 2009 Central Otago Pinot Noir, all retaining the unique Dick Frizzell-designed label art.
“I’m thrilled with how well our wines have been received since we launched 18 months ago, and expanding our range was a natural next step. When we started out on this adventure, we wanted to make a real contribution to the New Zealand wine scene, and we hope people enjoy the new range as much as we have enjoyed developing it,” says Dick Frizzell.
In addition to the new releases, Frizzell has also launched a Limited Edition Reserve Range comprising a 2007 Hawkes Bay Reserve Merlot which has been given a five star rating by Sam Kim of Wine Orbit.
“I couldn’t be happier this limited edition has already received recognition by the wine industry – it’s very important to me that it’s not just about having a unique label on a bottle but the quality of the wine has to be exceptional too. I’ve been lucky enough to work with such a strong team who are all about keeping standards high and as a result our business has gone from strength to strength,” says Frizzell.
Frizzell wines are made from top-quality New Zealand grapes and the wines – like Frizzell’s artworks – have become sought-after collectors’ items.
Just 1,300 cases are available of the new releases (300 chardonnay and 500 each of the sauvignon blanc and pinot noir) and only 270 six-packs of the Reserve editions.
The wines are now available from fine wine stores, selected supermarkets, or online at www.frizzellwines.co.nz.
