Clink Wines introduces NZ selection
Published:  08 January, 2010

Clink Wines has joined forces with Kiwi winemaker Matt Thomson to launch a range of well-known single varietal wines that arenít readily available from New Zealand.

The first brand in the range will be the Paddler, consisting of Sauvignon Blanc 2009 Wairau (rrp £7.99), Sauvignon Blanc 2009 Dillonís Point (£9.49), Pinot Gris 2009 (£8.99), Riesling 2009 (£9.49), a 2009 Pinot Gris/Riesling/GewŁrztraminer blend (£9.49) and Pinot Noir 2008 (£11.99).

It has been created to appeal to 25 to 60 year olds who love New Zealand wine but are interested in trying new varieties, according to Clink Winesí managing director Catherine Monahan.

The brand will be backed via activity on Facebook and Twitter, and a new website and blog where consumers can talk directly to Thomson, who is the managing director of winemaking and consultancy service Kiwi-Oeno.

Ten extreme sportsmen from New Zealand and the UK will compete in 10 different extreme sports and learn how to make wine in a video marketing campaign. The Paddler will also sponsor the NZ Kayaking Championships and a number of global extreme sports events.
