In recent years New Zealand wines have grown in popularity, founded on great quality. Famous for delicious Sauvignon Blancs, but with a growing reputation of great Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
Critically recognised as one of the best places in the world to grow Sauvignon Blanc grape, Marlborough in the north-east of New Zealand's South Island, now rivals the traditional French home of Sauvignon Blanc, the Loire Valley.
Central Otago the most southerly wine producing region in the world, has started to produce some critically acclaimed Pinot Noirs. Which only adds to New Zealand’s well-earned reputation as a home of world class wines.
