New Zealand Wine
New Zealand wine can be summed up as being New World Wine with crisp fruity acids. This description though only tells part of the story. New Zealand wines are best known for their sharp but very fruity Sauvignon Blancs but it’s the range of climates that means a wide variety of wines can be produced. The main three New Zealand wine regions are Marlborough on the northern tip of South Island – famous for its’ Sauvignon Blanc, Gisborne on North Island where Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer are the main grape varieties and Hawkes Bay on the east coast of North Island where they produce a wide range of wines – both red and white.
Of the smaller New Zealand wine regions the most notable on South Island are Canterbury around Christchurch where some excellent Pinot Noirs are produced and Central Otago – the world’s most southerly wine region where again the stars of the show are the Pinot Noirs. The smaller regions of North Island are Wairarapa and Martinborough where some excellent Chardonnays are produced by some of the smaller producers.
