Drove down from Cheviot to Akaroa on the Banks peninsula. On the way we stopped for a morning wine tasting and bought a couple of whites. The drive from Christchurch to Akaroa through the Banks Peninsula looked promising - reminded us a bit of Asturias - though we couldn't see much due to low cloud. Had another gourmet stop to pick up some "award winning" cheeses. Mostly cheddar and cheddar-like in the shop, so not that like Asturias (known for it's cheese variety), but we managed to find an interesting blue.
