women’s<br />

title for<br />

14yo surfer<br />

AT JUST 14-years-old Taylors<br />

Mistake’s Ava Henderson became<br />

the second youngest surfer to win<br />

the national women’s open surfing<br />

title at St Clair Beach in Dunedin<br />

on Saturday.<br />

Henderson not only became<br />

one of the youngest ever winners<br />

of the title, but also added to her<br />

under-18 title earlier in the day.<br />

It was an emphatic event for<br />

the Henderson family with<br />

Ava’s mother Donna winning<br />

the women’s over 40s title and<br />

finishing runner-up in the<br />

women’s longboard.<br />

Plan for<br />

Sumner bus<br />

to take home<br />

Saturday<br />

night<br />

revellers<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

A NEW BUS service is being<br />

planned to get party-goers home<br />

from the central city to Sumner.<br />

Bentley Transport and<br />

Christchurch Shuttles and Tours<br />

are looking to start a six-month<br />

trial, running a service which<br />

will be called the Midnight<br />

Express.<br />

It would leave from Victoria<br />

St, near Carlton Bar and Eatery,<br />

at 1.<strong>15</strong>am, 2.<strong>15</strong>am and 3.<strong>15</strong>am<br />

on Sundays, stopping at popular<br />

nightspots such as Hereford St<br />

before heading to Sumner.<br />

The fare, which will cost up to<br />

$10, would follow the same route<br />

as Metro’s Purple Line and drop<br />

people along the way.<br />

Midnight Express Sumner<br />

service co-ordinator Roe van der<br />

Merwe said the bus would go off<br />

route, within reason, once it gets<br />

to the area to drop people closer<br />

to their door.<br />

Mr van der Merwe said the<br />

companies are hoping to get<br />

approval to run the trial from<br />

Environment Canterbury and the<br />

city council in the next few weeks.<br />

YOUNG AVA Henderson took another<br />

giant step forward in her very promising<br />

surfing career at the weekend (see page 1).<br />

The 14-year-old won the national<br />

women’s open title at St Clair, an amazing<br />

feat given her age.<br />

Ava was in red-hot form on Saturday, which was finals day,<br />

also winning the under-18s just hours before taking out the open<br />

title.<br />

In fact it was a great day all round for surfers from the <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News area.<br />

Ava’s mother, Donna, won the women’s over-40s title and was<br />

runner-up in the women’s longboard; Amelie Wink, also 14, won<br />

the women’s stand-up paddleboard, beating Lucy Te Moananui,<br />

and Ambrose McNeill won the men’s longboard.<br />

Crafted goods to help animals<br />

affected by Australian wildfires<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

ANIMAL LOVER Georgia<br />

Greening was done feeling<br />

helpless over Australia’s<br />

bushfires.<br />

Desperately searching for a<br />

way to provide support, she came<br />

across the idea to make flannelette<br />

pouches to nurse burnt or<br />

orphaned animals.<br />

“I saw that Australia has none<br />

of these supplies. The medical<br />

supplies that they can use are so<br />

costly and that’s not what they<br />

need - they need quality, not<br />

quantity.”<br />

Now, Miss Greening, who<br />

lives in Sumner, has set herself<br />

the task of creating 250 of them<br />

before <strong>January</strong> 20, so they can be<br />

taken over with people travelling<br />

to Sydney.<br />

It is estimated more than a billion<br />

animals have now died in the<br />

fires, with some species at risk of<br />

becoming locally extinct.<br />

“Animals don’t have a voice<br />

and don’t know what’s going on,<br />

they are just trying to fight and<br />

survive for their species.”<br />

As of yesterday, Miss Greening<br />

had sewn about 170 using old<br />

sheets donated by people in her<br />

community.<br />

One type of pouch is designed<br />

specifically for bats and has a<br />

SECURE: Koalas, bats, joeys<br />

and geckos will benefit from<br />

Georgia Greening’s pouches<br />

and wraps. IMAGE: GETTY<br />

padded cushion at the end.<br />

“A lot of the bats affected by<br />

the fires are very [small], so the<br />

cushion acts as mother support.<br />

These get wrapped around them<br />

which keeps it dark and it keeps<br />

their wings nice and secure.”<br />

The other item is a more “universal”<br />

flat wrap, which can be<br />

used to make pouches for other<br />

animals including koalas, joeys<br />

and geckos.<br />

• If you want to help create<br />

goods for affected animals,<br />

HELPING OUT: Georgia Greening has made about 170 wraps to<br />

help nurse animals injured or orphaned in Australia’s wildfires.<br />

Her target is 250. ​<br />

Bid to eradicate possums<br />

RESIDENTS CAN have their<br />

say over plans to ramp up the<br />

eradication of possums in Banks<br />

Peninsula.<br />

A new control programme by<br />

Pest Free Banks Peninsula aims<br />

to protect native wildlife and<br />

vegetation across a 1<strong>15</strong>,000ha<br />

area.<br />

Spokesperson Dr David Miller<br />

said it is part of a 30-year initiative<br />

to protect biodiversity and<br />

support sustainable agriculture<br />

and tourism.<br />

“Possums are causing havoc<br />

to our native vegetation and<br />

wildlife, so we’re looking to start<br />

a new programme with the aim<br />

of eradicating possums from<br />

south-eastern Banks Peninsula<br />

over the next five years. From<br />

there we will progressively work<br />

outwards across the peninsula.<br />

“This is an ambitious project<br />

and we will need the support<br />

and involvement landowners<br />

and residents to achieve the<br />

long-term vision.”<br />

The new programme replaces<br />

the previous possum control<br />

programme run by Environment<br />

Canterbury.<br />

“We understand some landowners<br />

would like to see possums<br />

controlled over the entire<br />

peninsula. It is, however, widely<br />

accepted that the previous possum<br />

programme was no longer<br />

CONTROL: Pest Free<br />

Peninsula plans to trial new<br />

methods of eradicating<br />

possums across Banks<br />

Peninsula over the next six<br />

months to figure out the most<br />

effective and affordable way<br />

of keeping numbers down.<br />

achieving its desired impact.<br />

We need to look at new ways of<br />

doing things.<br />

“Over the next six months<br />

we will trial new methods of<br />

controlling possums to see if<br />

we can provide effective and affordable<br />

suppression beyond the<br />

eradication area to keep possum<br />

numbers down,” said Dr Miller.<br />

Residents can learn more<br />

about the proposed programme<br />

and meet project representatives<br />

during Banks Peninsula’s Conservation<br />

Trust’s display at Little<br />

River Show on Saturday.<br />

Public meetings will also be<br />

held at the Akaroa Sport Pavilion<br />

on <strong>January</strong> 24, and at the<br />

Little River Rugby Club Rooms<br />

on the <strong>January</strong> 29. Both meetings<br />

start at 6pm.<br />

Pest Free Banks Peninsula<br />

is a partnership of 14 parties,<br />

including central and local<br />

Government, five Ngāi Tahu<br />

Rūnanga, and commercial and<br />

not for profit organisations.<br />

The new possum control<br />

programme complements other<br />

initiatives that are also under<br />

way.<br />

This includes a programme<br />

to eradicate feral goats from the<br />

Peninsula within five years and<br />

urban trapping programmes in<br />

many areas, including the Port<br />

Hills.<br />

The new possum programme<br />

will be integrated with a<br />

Department of Conservation<br />

and Orion initiative launched<br />

late last year which focuses on<br />

controlling possums on public<br />

conservation land within the<br />

Peninsula.<br />

OPTION:<br />

would run<br />

from the<br />

central city<br />

to Sumner<br />

Midnight bus to Sumner<br />

•From page 1<br />

“There is potentially the need<br />

for a cheaper service. If people are<br />

travelling in a group, it’s easier<br />

than having to get two taxis as<br />

the cost would double. It’s also<br />

not something you have to book,<br />

it’s a scheduled service.”<br />

Bentley Transport has two<br />

other Midnight Express lines<br />

running from the<br />

central city to Rolleston<br />

and Rangiora which<br />

Mr van der Merwe said<br />

have seen a “really good<br />

response.”<br />

He said the decision<br />

to run the bus out to<br />

Sumner was based<br />

on the population of<br />

the area and because<br />

a similar service was<br />

provided to the area prior to the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

the bus if it became an option.<br />

Miss Wright would usually pay<br />

between $40 and $50 for<br />

an Uber or up to $80 for<br />

a taxi to get home after a<br />

Saturday night out.<br />

“I think the bus is such a<br />

the idea of having another<br />

Standout performance of the event<br />

•From page 1<br />

There were also national titles<br />

for Sumner surfers Amelie Wink<br />

and Ambrose McNeill.<br />

In the women’s open final<br />

Henderson posted a 14.03 total<br />

to beat Piha’s Gabrielle Paul by<br />

nearly three points in a dominant<br />

display.<br />

“I started to believe I could<br />

win when I got a five and I only<br />

needed another five to lead, and<br />

I had already got that score and<br />

I hadn’t actually surfed to my<br />

potential,” Henderson said.<br />

“I knew if I got a few good<br />

turns in, I could get a six or<br />

higher, you know.<br />

“Then when I was leading<br />

toward the end, all I wanted was<br />

for the time to speed up because<br />

I had priority and I knew I could<br />

control the final.”<br />

Henderson also claimed the<br />

overall standout performance of<br />

the event.<br />

Foul odour<br />

solution for<br />

Ferrymead<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

AN ODOUR treatment unit will<br />

be installed in Ferrymead to rid a<br />

foul and corrosive smell generated<br />

by sewer systems.<br />

Work to install the unit near<br />

Settlers Cres and Heathcote<br />

Towpath has started and is<br />

expected to finish by the end of<br />

February.<br />

City council head of three waters<br />

and waste Helen Beaumont<br />

said installing a well-designed<br />

and operated filter will treat offensive<br />

odours and extend the<br />

asset lives of the infrastructure.<br />

Ms Beaumont said the city<br />

council has not recieved any<br />

complaints from residents or<br />

businesses and that the decision<br />

to install the unit was made after<br />

staff identified the smell.<br />

Environment Canterbury has<br />

received seven complaints from<br />

Ferrymead residents relating to<br />

odour in the area since July 2017.<br />

However, a spokesperson could<br />

not confirm whether it was coming<br />

from the wastewater system as<br />

none of the complaints provided<br />

evidence.<br />

“It is possible that in some<br />

cases the odour was from another<br />

source, for example, the landfill<br />

in Bromley which is nearby.”<br />

Tram shelter repairs<br />

delayed again<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

REDCLIFFS Residents’<br />

Association secretary Pat<br />

McIntosh says a house<br />

could have been built in the<br />

time it has taken to repair<br />

the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> tram<br />

shelter.<br />

City council transport<br />

operations manager Steffan<br />

Thomas has confirmed it<br />

will take until the end of<br />

this month to finish work<br />

on the 85-year-old structure<br />

on Main Rd.<br />

Design work started<br />

in <strong>January</strong> last year and<br />

repairs were set to be<br />

completed before the end of<br />

September.<br />

However, the completion<br />

date was pushed out until<br />

the end of December as<br />

further design work on the<br />

maintenance and strengthening<br />

of the shelter was<br />

required.<br />

Now, that date has been<br />

further revised due to a<br />

delay with the supply of<br />

specific structural timber<br />

required for the earthquake<br />

bracing upgrade.<br />

Dr McIntosh said she is<br />

“disappointed” there have<br />

been further delays.<br />

PUSHED BACK: Residents must wait until the end<br />

of this month for the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> tram shelter<br />

to open, as the city council has confirmed more<br />

delays.<br />

The association has been<br />

critical of the progress<br />

made on the shelter since<br />

the city council closed it<br />

in December 2018 due to<br />

earthquake vulnerability.<br />

“To be unable to repair<br />

such a small structure<br />

suggests that they have<br />

some systemic problems.<br />

Why is the process so<br />

inefficient and slow?”<br />

Mental health initiative launches in Sumner<br />

FARMERS CAN ride the wave<br />

of a mental health initiative<br />

which has launched in Sumner.<br />

After a successful test run in<br />

Gisborne last summer, “Surfing<br />

for Farmers” has made its way<br />

down to Canterbury.<br />

It will run every Tuesday night<br />

over summer from 5.45pm,<br />

meeting at Stoke St.<br />

Fifteen farmers working in<br />

rural areas made their way to<br />

Sumner Beach for its first session<br />

on <strong>January</strong> 7.<br />

Canterbury co-ordinator Sandra<br />

Taylor said they all managed<br />

to stand up and left the water<br />

with “a big smile on their faces.”<br />

Afterwards, the group were<br />

able to wind down and get to<br />

know each other over a few beers<br />

and refreshments.<br />

Stephen Thomson, a surfer,<br />

farmer and rural real estate agent<br />

at <strong>Bay</strong>leys, was inspired to set up<br />

the programme after watching<br />

the Netflix documentary “Resurface”.<br />

The documentary showed how<br />

surfing helped heal American<br />

war veterans suffering from<br />

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder<br />

(PTSD).<br />

Mr Thomson said when the<br />

war vet described how he used<br />

to wake up every day wanting to<br />

shoot himself – now he wakes up<br />

wanting to go surfing.<br />

Knowing how much better<br />

he always felt after being in the<br />

saltwater, Mr Thomson was<br />

determined to give farmers the<br />

opportunity to get off-site once a<br />

week and experience that same<br />

feeling of well-being.<br />

“While there is a lot of conversation<br />

about mental health<br />

in the rural sector, this is not<br />

being matched by action orprogrammes<br />

that actually take<br />

farmers away from the farm and<br />

put them in a completely different<br />

yet supportive environment.”<br />

He said at farm discussion<br />

groups or community events the<br />

conversation invariably turns<br />

to farming, but after surfing the<br />

conversation is about catching,<br />

or not catching waves and rides<br />

are re-lived.<br />

Sponsorships mean farmers do<br />

not have to pay anything and all<br />

gear and tuition will be provided<br />

by the Sumner Surf School.<br />

STRESS RELIEF: Fifteen<br />

farmers headed to Sumner<br />

Beach on <strong>January</strong> 7 to<br />

give surfing a go as part of<br />

an initiative encouraging<br />

wellbeing.<br />

Mr Thomson is hoping other<br />

Canterbury rural businesses<br />

and organisations will get on<br />

board and support the initiative,<br />

particularly in light of the many<br />

pressures facing farmers.<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

SO VITTORIA is in the midst of<br />

her first week of preschool now<br />

and I’m coping. Mostly.<br />

Her orientation day last month<br />

got me kind of ready for the<br />

whole concept of leaving her with<br />

strangers for an hour, but dropping<br />

her off with them for her<br />

four hour first day on my own<br />

was a whole new ball game.<br />

I managed to start the week in<br />

classic fashion, forgetting to actually<br />

get her bag or lunch ready<br />

until about midnight on Sunday.<br />

I had set an alarm nice and<br />

early so that I could get Vittoria<br />

ready for her 8am start time easily<br />

enough, but I forgot to pass<br />

the memo on to her and she went<br />

right ahead and woke up more<br />

than an hour beforehand.<br />

With all that extra preparation<br />

time, I easily got her fed, dressed,<br />

washed and ready in time for us<br />

to have a nice walk to get there.<br />

When she realised where we were<br />

headed, she turned around and<br />

gave me a massive smile. Good<br />

confidence boost there.<br />

It only lasted until I went out<br />

of her eyesight for five seconds<br />

to put her bag with those of her<br />

classmates. I’d popped inside<br />

to what I assume is a fairly well<br />

sound-proofed building to do so<br />

and I could hear her siren going<br />

off from in there.<br />

She met me at the door and<br />

her sad wee face broke my heart.<br />

From there she clung on tight<br />

and started tearing up if I so<br />

much as thought about putting<br />

her down. I had to hand her off<br />

to a teacher and grimace my way<br />

through her crying as I left.<br />

When pickup time finally<br />

rolled around, she barely noticed<br />

as I arrived. She was way too<br />

engrossed in the sandpit.<br />

Her teacher said she’d been<br />

happy and well-behaved the<br />

whole time and had only cried<br />

•Former Star Media journalist<br />

Matt Salmons has become a<br />

stay-at-home dad. We follow<br />

journey weekly.<br />

for a minute or two after<br />

I’d left.<br />

She almost had me<br />

thinking she was over<br />

hanging with her dad,<br />

until she turned around,<br />

smiled and ran over to<br />

me to have a wee cry to<br />

let me know how she<br />

missed me.<br />

Hopefully she’ll enjoy<br />

each day just as much<br />

and hopefully I’ll get better<br />

at holding it together<br />

while she does.<br />

backpack pose.<br />

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY<br />

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust,<br />

a non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s<br />

most important coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird<br />

found in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding of the<br />

values and uniqueness of the area.<br />

THE COLOURFUL little kingfisher<br />

are found at several sites around our<br />

estuary.<br />

They prefer to perch rather<br />

than walk on the ground on mudflats.<br />

You will see them on rocks,<br />

logs, jetties and even washing<br />

lines.<br />

They eat insects, lizards and mice<br />

but mainly crabs which they return<br />

to their perch where they batter the<br />

legs off before swallowing the main<br />

body.<br />

Pellets of indigestible remains are<br />

regurgitated and you will see these,<br />

together with piles of crab legs on<br />

and near rocks when you walk along<br />

the South New Brighton jetty, which<br />

is a favourite dinner table for these<br />

birds.<br />

They may be a small bird but are<br />

absolutely fearlessly aggressive when<br />

protecting chicks and will attack<br />

other birds coming too close and<br />

even dive-bomb mammals such as<br />

cats and dogs.<br />

They nest inside trees and sand<br />

cliffs where they repeatedly fly at the<br />

site and slowly chisel out materials<br />

till they have created a safe hole for<br />

laying eggs.<br />

How can we help these, and all<br />

other birds? Keep dogs on the lead<br />

when walking near the estuary and<br />

pick up litter!<br />

COLOURFUL: The kingfisher is often seen perching<br />

around South New Brighton looking for its favourite<br />

food - crabs.<br />

New fitness stations to<br />

be installed at Little River<br />

FIVE NEW outdoor<br />

fitness stations will be<br />

installed in Little River’s<br />

Awa-iti Domain by next<br />

month.<br />

Banks Peninsula<br />

Community Board approved<br />

the installation<br />

last month, amending<br />

the master plan for the<br />

domain.<br />

The installation follows<br />

requests from residents<br />

seeking additional fitness<br />

activities.<br />

Community board<br />

chairwoman Tori Peden<br />

said the new “outdoor<br />

The<br />

Redcliffs<br />

Residents<br />

Association<br />

has<br />

launched<br />

an “ecovillage”<br />

initiative<br />

in response to our<br />

climate and ecological<br />

emergency. This<br />

month member Dave<br />

Bryce focuses on<br />

weeds<br />

OUR COUNTRY has<br />

about 2500 types of native<br />

flowering plants. However,<br />

in addition, we also have<br />

more than 2500 (and<br />

increasing) types of exotic<br />

“wild” plants or weeds and<br />

more than 20,000 types<br />

of cultivated and garden<br />

plants.<br />

Many exotic plants are<br />

“invasive,” including some<br />

exotic forest species, and<br />

spread and take over habitats<br />

of native plants.<br />

Many of our native plants<br />

have evolved here over<br />

millions of years and are<br />

unique to New Zealand,<br />

which makes them globally<br />

important for protection.<br />

In addition, they have<br />

evolved with our native<br />

animals, insects and soil<br />

biota and have symbiotic<br />

relationships with them,<br />

unlike most exotic plants.<br />

Weeds have no natural<br />

checks on their spread and<br />

need to be controlled or<br />

eliminated to protect our<br />

native plants and habitats<br />

and also to protect our agriculture<br />

and horticulture.<br />

Many of these weeds<br />

come from our home<br />

gardens via neighbours<br />

or plants or soil imported<br />

from other parts of the<br />

country or even overseas.<br />

gym” in Awa-iti Domain<br />

will help meet the growing<br />

demand for improved<br />

health and well-being<br />

options in the district.<br />

“Having such diverse<br />

fitness stations in place<br />

will hopefully also motivate<br />

people with a range of<br />

fitness goals to regularly<br />

use the equipment,” Ms<br />

Peden said.<br />

The wooden apparatus<br />

includes a stepper,<br />

hurdles, a balance beam,<br />

stepping logs and a<br />

straddle jump sited in a<br />

corner of the domain near<br />

Weeding lets native<br />

plants flourish<br />

CONTROL: Removing weeds from your garden<br />

will help to protect native plants<br />

While it is tempting to<br />

buy off-the-shelf herbicides<br />

for problem weeds, the jury<br />

is still out on the safety of<br />

such products for other<br />

plants, micro-organisms,<br />

insects like honey bees and<br />

even humans. In any event,<br />

the scale of problem weeds<br />

on a residential property is<br />

usually manageable without<br />

such products.<br />

In Redcliffs, some weeds<br />

have seeds which are<br />

dispersed by wind, water,<br />

birds or other animals.<br />

These can be pulled out,<br />

hoed or cut, or you can cut<br />

off flower heads to prevent<br />

seeding. These plants<br />

include nightshade, lupins,<br />

veldt grass, boneseed or<br />

saltbush, cleavers, dandelion,<br />

fathen, fumitory, gallant<br />

soldiers and oxtongue.<br />

Other weeds have big<br />

roots which you either<br />

need to dig out, or regularly<br />

remove foliage, which<br />

feeds the root, until the<br />

root withers and dies.<br />

Many have flowers and<br />

seed as well and these need<br />

to be cut off. These plants<br />

the fire station.<br />

The different apparatus<br />

caters to multiple fitness<br />

levels.<br />

The domain, which sits<br />

next to Little River School,<br />

already includes several<br />

sports fields, a community<br />

centre and rugby clubrooms.<br />

Work is also under<br />

way to restore the<br />

damaged tennis courts<br />

in the domain in tandem<br />

with the fitness stations<br />

installation. The domain<br />

will remain open during<br />

the installation work.<br />

include pig’s ear, fennel,<br />

wild parsnip, hemlock,<br />

twitch, convolvulus,<br />

blackberry, spur valerian,<br />

thistle, gorse, male fern<br />

(spores, not flowers), and<br />

polypodium fern (also<br />

spores, not flowers).<br />

Still, other weeds have<br />

bulbs and corms, all of<br />

which you will need to dig<br />

out. These include agapanthus<br />

and oxalis.<br />

Others are creepers<br />

which drop roots at regular<br />

intervals, which you will<br />

need to carefully pull out.<br />

These include nasturtium,<br />

periwinkle, purple loosestrife<br />

and tradescantia<br />

(wandering willie). Some<br />

creepers invade trees and<br />

can be pulled out when<br />

you find the rooted stem.<br />

These include banana passion<br />

fruit.<br />

Remember the old saying…one<br />

year’s seeding<br />

gives seven years weeding…so<br />

stop them seeding!<br />

You can Google plant<br />

names or search “weed<br />

busters” for pictures to<br />

identify these weeds.<br />

From computer<br />

novice to digital<br />

whizz<br />

A simple desire to become more<br />

confident using computers has opened up<br />

a world of possibilities for Thomas King, a<br />

co-director of a logistics business.<br />

“The world is rapidly changing and to<br />

keep pace with it, having some confidence<br />

and competence in computing is crucial,”<br />

he says. “I realised that I’d have to embrace<br />

this scary but exciting new tech-driven<br />

world sooner or later, and now here I am<br />

today, loving what I once feared.”<br />

Thomas got the skills he was looking<br />

for at Ara Connect, a network of<br />

community hubs operated by Ara Institute<br />

of Canterbury which<br />

offer free, non-assessed<br />

computing courses for<br />

anyone wanting to gain<br />

skills and confidence<br />

using digital technology.<br />

Thomas says the tutors<br />

at Ara Connect made<br />

learning an enjoyable<br />

experience and were<br />

very supportive. “I felt<br />

so inspired during my<br />

journey. The tutors were<br />

very attentive and always<br />

eager to assist. They want<br />

you to succeed and they<br />

encourage you to push<br />

your boundaries without ever throwing<br />

you in the deep end.”<br />

His advice for anyone else considering<br />

the computing courses at Ara Connect<br />

is to just go for it. “Knowing how to use<br />

computers in a way that delivers results can<br />

make life so much easier, especially in the<br />

world of business. I certainly wish I’d taken<br />

courses like these two decades ago. My<br />

advice is to pluck up the courage and just<br />

go for it.”<br />

Information about Ara Connect<br />

courses is available at ara.ac.nz or by<br />

calling 0800 24 24 76.

Wine<br />

2017 a vintage year for pinot noir<br />

• By Mark Henderson<br />

THESE PINOT noir wines<br />

were assembled over a number<br />

of tasting events, but are<br />

compiled together for clarity,<br />

and reinforce my belief that 2017<br />

will be ranked as one of the great<br />

vintages.<br />

A constant thread through<br />

the Otago 2017 pinots has been<br />

the structure. While the term<br />

may sound flippant, these are<br />

“serious’’ wines, crafted with<br />

intent for future development,<br />

yet with so many also having<br />

delicious immediacy. It’s a good<br />

time to be a pinot lover.<br />

2017 Valli Waitaki<br />

Vineyard Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $69.99<br />

Rating: Excellent to<br />

outstanding<br />

There’s an alluring perfume<br />

and elegance, scents that evoke<br />

an autumnal feel. A silky entry<br />

with real delicacy, the red fruits<br />

and savoury notes wrapped in a<br />

bed of brambles. Not at all flashy<br />

or showy, this creeps up on you<br />

as it builds quietly in weight and<br />

poise, the fresh acidity keeping<br />

this lively.<br />

An attractive herbaceous note<br />

hangs on the long close.<br />

www.valliwine.com<br />

2017 Mt Difficulty Single<br />

Vineyard Long Gully<br />

Bannockburn Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $110<br />

Rating: Very good to excellent<br />

Powerful nose of smoke, dark<br />

fruits, wild herbs, dustiness with<br />

a sweet fruit lift akin to dried<br />

strawberry. Powerful and chewy<br />

palate, a little more primal with<br />

some confectionery/ dried fruits<br />

at first before this builds and<br />

fleshes out. Nice flow through<br />

the mouth becoming more<br />

savoury, with a hint of blueberry<br />

on the close.<br />

Just a little shorter on the<br />

finish.<br />

2017 Mt Difficulty Single<br />

Vineyard Target Gully<br />

Bannockburn Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $110<br />

Rating: Excellent to<br />

outstanding<br />

A little wildness, wild herbs,<br />

dustiness, rich fruit. Tightly<br />

bound and youthfully brash<br />

palate wrapped round a deep<br />

core of darker fruits and<br />

powerful tannins. While firm,<br />

this teases you with glimpses of<br />

its charms, slowly developing<br />

sumptuousness as the fruit<br />

builds, adding savoury and lead<br />

pencil nuances.<br />

Desperately crying out for<br />

bottle age, but the elements are<br />

there.<br />

www.mtdifficulty.nz<br />

2017 Chard Farm River<br />

Run Central Otago Pinot<br />

Noir<br />

Price: $35<br />

Rating: Very good to excellent<br />

Subtle but attractive nose that<br />

grows in the glass, becoming<br />

perfumed and floral with<br />

hints of lavender. A touch of<br />

confectionery is tempered<br />

by bright acidity and a juicy,<br />

cranberry-like crunchiness.<br />

A savoury edge builds as do<br />

pencil shavings, adding to the<br />

flavour nuances, with the wine<br />

retaining that brightness and<br />

vibrancy to the last drop.<br />

www.chardfarm.co.nz<br />

2017 Kuru Kuru Central<br />

Otago Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $40<br />

Rating: Excellent<br />

A whisper of wildness and<br />

funk at first, hard candy, moving<br />

to darker raspberry notes and<br />

wild herbs; tilled earth and oak<br />

scents following. Noticeable<br />

tannic grip, bigger boned, chewy<br />

and intense with plum, dark<br />

cherry and a tangy, zestiness.<br />

This becomes more sumptuous<br />

as it evolves and opens up,<br />

adding hints of blueberry and<br />

spice.<br />

Potential here.<br />

www.kurukuru.co.nz<br />

2017 Domain Road<br />

Bannockburn Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $40<br />

Rating: Very good<br />

Bright and fragrant nose with<br />

dark cherry, raspberry, smoke,<br />

bacon and oak char. The palate is<br />

tighter and less expressive than<br />

the nose suggests adding lead<br />

pencil and cool, cranberry notes<br />

with mouth puckering tannins.<br />

Aeration allows this to build<br />

and open up, but for now it is<br />

showing its grippy, structured<br />

side.<br />

Time should build on the<br />

promise shown by the nose.<br />

www.domainroad.co.nz<br />

2017 Burn Cottage Burn<br />

Cottage Vineyard Central<br />

Otago Pinot Noir<br />

Price: $70<br />

Rating: Outstanding<br />

Wonderfully floral nose draws<br />

you in: a mix of dark fruits,<br />

some red fruits, wild herbs and<br />

savoury nuances, becoming<br />

violetty with time. Silky, textural,<br />

the palate follows the nose<br />

adding slatey, stony minerality<br />

and tannic chewiness. Deceptive<br />

power to this; richness yet<br />

beautiful balance and complexity<br />

with a fabulously long finish.<br />

Compelling stuff.<br />

Clever technology for big Lexus SUV<br />

YOU CAN guarantee Lexus as a<br />

brand and manufacturer won’t be<br />

sitting back resting on its laurels,<br />

the company has a big focus<br />

on product development and<br />

evolution.<br />

Bang on cue the RX series<br />

luxury sport utility vehicle has<br />

had a refresh. It gets a raft of new<br />

electronic technologies for safety<br />

and convenience and it has had a<br />

fairly hefty facelift.<br />

The cosmetic changes are bold<br />

and fit with the striking look<br />

Lexus has developed over the past<br />

few years, the enhancements also<br />

create even more of a luxurious<br />

feel, along with boosting driver<br />

enjoyment.<br />

One of the new features I<br />

found most interesting are the<br />

adaptive headlights which reduce<br />

brightness when oncoming cars<br />

are detected, in that case, the<br />

direction of light is also redirected<br />

towards the side of the road.<br />

Elsewhere, the concept of the<br />

big RX hasn’t been changed,<br />

there are five and seven-seater<br />

options and the choice of a hybrid<br />

drivetrain, bearing in mind that<br />

all RX models have V6 petrol<br />

power under the bonnet and all<br />

are four-wheel-drive.<br />

I’m due to drive a hybrid<br />

model soon, but this evaluation<br />

focuses on the RX350 which,<br />

as its nomenclature suggests,<br />

has a quad-camshaft 3.5-litre<br />

engine. It is a powerful unit at<br />

221kW and 370Nm and it drives<br />

through an eight-speed automatic<br />

transmission.<br />

Even though it is an engine<br />

that has been used widely<br />

throughout a raft of Toyota (and<br />

Lexus) product, it stands out<br />

for its strength, sophistication<br />

and performance, along with<br />

respectable fuel usage statistics.<br />

Lexus claims a 9.6-litre per<br />

100km (29mpg) combined cycle<br />

average. I found that easy to<br />

replicate with an 11-litre (26mpg)<br />

figure showing regularly on the<br />

fuel usage readout. At 100km/h,<br />

7l/100km (40mpg) is possible<br />

with the engine turning over at<br />

just 1600rpm.<br />

That is the secret to this big<br />

V6, it works tirelessly low down,<br />

hauling in quick shifts before the<br />

revs rise unnecessarily high. That<br />

is the beauty of any V6 engine,<br />

there is good torque flow, yet it<br />

whisks to high revolutions freely<br />

if required – when overtaking for<br />

example.<br />

The RX has an economy/<br />

normal/sport selector so that the<br />

driver can dictate how the engine<br />

works, depending on preference.<br />

LEXUS RX350: A host of new features for <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

I used normal mode mostly, but<br />

did try the sport setting, which<br />

is great for when overtaking<br />

opportunities arrive. The RX will<br />

lunge from 80km/h to 120km/h<br />

in around 4.5sec, along with a<br />

standstill to 100km/h time of<br />

7.8sec.<br />

All of the time the engine<br />

works without sound intrusion,<br />

even when it is hauling in<br />

towards the red line. I guess you’d<br />

expect that in a prestige/luxury<br />

car and it doesn’t disappoint.<br />

Refinement within the driveline<br />

doesn’t stop there, the fully<br />

independent suspension is supple<br />

offering a high degree of comfort<br />

while the steering is perfectly<br />

weighted with strong feedback.<br />

Even though it has a generous<br />

200mm of ground clearance, the<br />

RX can’t be considered an offroader<br />

– put simply, luxury SUVs<br />

aren’t aimed for those conditions<br />

– the four-wheel-drive system is<br />

there for when grip is challenged.<br />

I never ventured off the<br />

sealed surface, but the driveline<br />

certainly enhances feel on the seal<br />

promoting secure handling when<br />

pushed into a corner.<br />

While the RX has performance<br />

that sits well in the sport SUV<br />

sector, its primary role is to<br />

transport its occupants in the<br />

Lexus style of sophistication<br />

and grace. It is a full five-seater<br />

with full leather trim, satellite<br />

navigation, heated and cooled<br />

seats, paddle gearshifters, and all<br />

of the functions you would need<br />

every day as a premium car buyer.<br />

The evaluation car was an<br />

F-Sport model which, as its<br />

branding would suggest, has<br />

a few sporty type ingredients<br />

– aluminium pedals, F-Sport<br />

badging and 20in wheels.<br />

Any RX buyer won’t be<br />

• Price – Lexus RX350,<br />

$109,600<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4890mm; width,<br />

1895mm; height,<br />

1690mm<br />

• Configuration – V6,<br />

four-wheel-drive, 3456cc,<br />

221kW, 370Nm, eightspeed<br />

automatic.<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 7.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 9.6l/100km<br />

disappointed with the amount of<br />

onboard kit, and the specification<br />

level justifies its $109,600 price<br />

tag. A base spec V6 starts the<br />

range at just below $100k,<br />

while the seven-seat V6 lists at<br />

$109,500. Incidentally, hybrid<br />

models start from $116,400 and<br />

end at $127,500.<br />

As part of a process to<br />

rehome my wife’s piano within<br />

our dwelling, we purchased a<br />

tallboy to house her music and<br />

other paraphernalia. I used the<br />

RX to transport the piece of<br />

furniture home, and that journey<br />

highlighted the practicality big<br />

SUVs offer, the rear seats fold<br />

down to open up an expansive<br />

cargo load space. Even though<br />

the F-Sport model has just two<br />

rows of seats, I can easily see how<br />

the seven-seat option would work<br />

in this car.<br />

These are just some of the<br />

reasons why SUVs are the biggest<br />

selling models within the Lexus<br />

brand.
