Soho Wine Co
A popular brand in New Zealand with more glass pours in New Zealand's best restaurants and bars than most other boutique wine companies. SOHO founder Rachael Carter's family owns vineyards in Marlborough and Waiheke Island, which are used for SOHO wines along with Grant Taylor's Central Otago vineyard.
The wines have only been imported to the U.S. recently (mid-2012), through importer Vici Wines and Spirits. Plans are for SOHO to increase production by 253% over the next years, and import into the U.S. half of the expected 60,000 cases to be produced in 2014.
Winemakers include Dave Clouston (Marlborough), Pete Turner (Waiheke Island), and Grant Taylor (Central Otago).

14.0% alc., $27, screwcap. Imported by Nedrac Inc., Palm Desert, CA. Winemaker is Grant Taylor. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Very ripe aromas of raisin, black plum and dark chocolate. Dark, earthy, ripe fruits are featured, highlighted by citrus-laden acidity that persists on the finish. The acidity brings the wine freshness, but is a bit imposing. Decent. Reviewed October 2, 2012 ARTICLE »
