If you couldn't tell from Instagrams of your friend's friend's bae, or the general pink and red themes taking over every restaurant and Snapchat filter, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. While it's a lovely time for some to go out to dinner with their significant other, some of us can't do that — mainly because a half-eaten bag of Doritos apparently "doesn't justify a table for two."

Regional Snapshot: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

A wine region’s ability to emulate a famous appellation isn’t the primary reason to study it, but it’s a compelling feature, nonetheless. 

 

Several years ago, famous author Oz Clarke published a book entitled Bordeaux. In it, he listed the few regions of the world boasting similar enough growing conditions to the French appellation to be considered “lookalikes” of the Medoc. Hawke’s Bay made the cut. While this area on the North Island produces stunning red Bordeaux blends, it also produces fine imitations of Syrah from the Northern Rhône Valley. A twofer, if you will, and a departure from New Zealand’s more famous red, Pinot Noir.
