Discover New Zealand wines
The Kiwis produce wine in a wide range of styles, in particular Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. We have several New Zealand wines available in our carefully curated range, so no matter your taste or budget, we will have something to suit your preferences.
This country should be admired for their vino, due to their intricate quality. Grapes grow well in here because of the amount of sunshine and rainfall it receives. The nation boasts a large and diverse range of labels to choose from, with varieties offering plenty of choices to spoil yourself with.
You’ll also find that each grape variety differs from one region to the next, providing a diverse palate to suit all tastes. Some of the country’s most famous regions include Hawke’s Bay, Marlborough, Central Otago and Gisborne – each producing a beautiful selection of flavours.
A little on the history
When compared to the longevity of European labels overseas, you’d be forgiven for thinking New Zealand is a relative newcomer to the field. However, you might be surprised to learn that the Kiwis have had vineyards and grapevines growing in their backyards since the 1800s – with missionary Samuel Marsden first planting a vine at the Bay of Islands back in 1819.
So why the big fuss over these vinos? Well, they’re clean, fresh and don’t feature an oak influence or overwhelming tannins. With complete versatility, there are also many options to choose from, making it easy to find your next favourite.
Finally, the country’s cooler climate makes for results that are higher in acidity, bringing about that clean taste. This also makes its whites, reds, roses and even fortifieds a real treat to try.
