New Zealand wine
New Zealand’s wine producing history extends back to the founding of the nation in the 1800s. But it was the introduction to Marlborough’s astonishing Sauvignon Blanc in the 1980s that saw New Zealand wine explode onto the international scene, courtesy of world beating performances in international competitions and rapturous critical reviews.
And while Marlborough retains its status as the one of the world’s foremost wine producing regions, the quality of wines from elsewhere in the country has also garnered international acclaim. By world standards, New Zealand’s production capacity is tiny, accounting for 1% of total volume. And though the average price tag for a New Zealand wine is a reflection of its desirability, few would question its ability to deliver excellent value for money.
In fact, it’s the unswerving commitment to quality over quantity that has won New Zealand its reputation as a premium producer. This commitment is evident from the vineyard to the winery: along with sustainability leadership, New Zealand continues to pioneer advances such as
canopy management, stainless steel fermentation techniques and screwcaps.
