New Zealand

This island at the end of the world has made a spectacular breakthrough for 20 years in all markets of the world. You only have to taste a good sauvignon blanc or a pinot noir to realize the unique intensity of New Zealand wines that are resolutely apart in the New World. Nearly 1600 km long from north to south, divided into two islands, the country enjoys a temperate climate, cool and sunny in the South Island, warmer in the North Island. After much trial and error, the country found its way thanks to the perfect adaptation of the sauvignon blanc grape variety to the climate of Marlborough, the main production region of the country. Its wines are distinguished by their aromatic exuberance and great freshness. Behind, the pinot noir is on the rise and has found terroirs to measure in Wairarapa, Canterbury, Marlborough and especially in Otago, a mountainous region in the south that offers very pure and fruity versions. Chardonnay is able to excel north (Hawke's Bay, Gisborne) as well as south (Marlborough, Otago), as is Riesling.
