Ian Millman, special projects with the National Rural Fire Authority handed over the new rural fire appliance to Com- mander Michael Goudie, chairman of the Auckland Civil Defence and Emerg- ency Management Group last Thursday. The National Rural Fire Auth- ority provided a 66.67 percent sub- sidy towards the cost of the appliance which was $160,000. The new engine will be housed in Tryphena, the most populated residen- tial area. With no retic- ulated water supply on Great Barrier, the appliance s in- creased capacity and auto foam injec- tion systems will be be put to good use and help improve Great Barrier s fire response capability. NZ NTM finalist's TV trip A finalist on New Zealand's Next Top Model: Waiheke High School student Amber Lawrence-Graham. By GILL ALCOCK While several Waiheke girls set out to audition for the third cycle of New Zealand s Next Top Model, just one made it to the final 33 and got to see herself on television. Year 12 Waiheke High School student Amber Lawrence-Graham was told at her audition at Westfield St Lukes she had model written all over her, by judge and the programme s host, Sara Tetro. Amber, a member of the Waiheke Pony Club and more often seen com- peting in show jumping competitions, made the shortlist, beating over 600 other hopefuls from around the country. Her reward was a trip to the Bay of Islands and four days of filming with Ms Tetro and fellow judges Colin Madhura- Jeffree and Chris Sisarich. Amber says the four days were full on, with the girls never knowing where they were going or what was happening. Her moment in the spotlight was confined to a few sightings in the background of much of the footage shown on the programme. But Amber says hundreds of other shots were taken of her and she had three or four interviews to camera that weren t used. Not that she s complaining: It was a really good experience and it was great finding out what the industry was like, she says. Her fellow competitors were really good fun and as they were all teenagers, she says they could all relate to each other. Amber, the second tallest and one of the youngest in the final 33, says she will probably have another go at mod- elling later on but wants to finish school first. AsforatipforNew Zealand s Next Top Model, Amber says: Bianca is the geeky one right now but I think she ll go far. Vineyard scores record high for red wine By GILL ALCOCK High rated: Destiny Bay's Magna Praemia 2007. Destiny Bay Vineyard has earned a record score for a New Zealand red wine from a prominent US critic. In the June 2011 edition of influential magazine The Tasting Panel, editor-in-chief and top wine critic Anthony Dias Blue has lauded the vineyard s 2007 Magna Praemia with a rating of 98 out of 100 -- the highest rating ever for a New Zealand red wine. In his review, Mr Blue states the wine is vel- vety, luscious and ripe with concentration and intense fruit stunning and super long. The wine is a blend of 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 18 percent Merlot, 5 percent Caber- net Franc, 5 percent Malbec, and 2 percent Petit Verdot. He also rated the vineyard s 2007 Destinae with a 90 and the 2007 Mystae with a 93. Co-founder of Destiny Bay Vineyards Mike Spratt says this is a noteworthy achievement, not only for them, but for all of Waiheke Island s fine red wine producers. For years New Zea- land has enjoyed inter- national recognition for producing great Sauv- ignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. At Destiny Bay we are proud to contribute our share to New Zealand s growing repu- tation for making world- class cabernet blends. The news follows successes by another Waiheke vineyard, Man O War, which collected five medals at the Inter- national Wine Challenge in London, the Decanter Wine Awards and the Imbibe Sommelier Awards.
