Although it was Sauvignon Blanc that put New Zealand on the wine map, New Zealand's temperate, maritime climate allows for a highly distinctive variety of wine styles - Syrahs, Chardonnays, Reislings and especially Pinot Noirs â€” from vineyards that are focused on biodynamic, renewable growing.
New Zealand's expansive coastline enables winemakers to succeed with a range of diverse varieties and styles; from the warmer climate wines, such as Bordeaux-style blends and Syrah, grown in Hawkes Bay and further north, through to much cooler climate wines, such as Pinot Noir and Riesling grown in the southerly regions.
