Fine wine from Marlborough New Zealand
The districts of Marlborough, Central Otago, and Hawke's Bay in New Zealand are especially well-known for their winemaking. White wines from the Sauvignon Blanc vine and red wines from the Pinot Noir grape are two of New Zealand's most famous exports.
Wines like Sauvignon Blanc, which is straw yellow in color and has a fruity scent, are excellent companions to seafood and light meats. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for its powerful and refreshing personality.
Pinot Noir, a wine known for its intense crimson hue and aromas of juicy red fruit and spice, is excellent with hearty fare like venison and aged cheeses. Central Otago Pinot Noir is renowned for its depth and complexity.
Famous wines from New Zealand include Riesling and Chardonnay, both of which are light in color and flavor and pair particularly well with seafood and poultry.
In addition to these two grape varieties, New Zealand is also known for producing other wines, such as the red Syrah, the white Gewürztraminer, and the sparkling wine made in the traditional style.
