Augustines Black Doris Plums in Pinot Noir Syrup are excellent with ice cream, yoghurt or simply plain. Gus has partnered up with Penkridge Farm, a Central Otago vineyard. The plums come right out of our Central Otago backyard as well, from Moorpark and Mulberry, a family-run orchard that was featured in the NZ Country Calendar.
