With a diverse range of climate and sub soils, from sub-tropical Northland to the most southerly grape growing region of Central Otago, it is no wonder that New Zealand is now producing the international varieties found in Europe with a great deal of success, no longer "just" Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. All the wine growing regions benefit from the moderating effect of their maritime climate, with a long ripening period with abundant sunshine hours and cool night-time temperatures, enabling the top quality producers to deliver wines with purity, vibrancy and a real sense of terroir.
This native of France and Italy is a fantastic variety to grow in New Zealand, but demands the same attentive treatment as Pinot Noir. Perfumed aromas of pears and spice with a rich middle palate. Displays a purity of aromatic fruit which follows through on the wonderful palate. Fantastic balance of flavor and texturemore
