About the region
The climate in New Zealand is maritime, meaning that the sea moderates the weather, producing cooler summers and milder winters than would be expected at similar latitudes in Europe or North America. Maritime climates tend also to demonstrate higher variability with cold snaps possible at any time of the year and warm periods even in the depth of winter.

The climate is typically wetter, but wine regions have developed in the rain shadows. The wine regions of New Zealand tend to experience cool nights even in the hottest of summers. The effect of consistently cool nights is to produce fruit that is nearly always high in natural acidity.

In the press
New Zealand is home to what many wine critics and customers consider to be the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc and it’s not hard to see why! Our very own Oz Clarke, British wine critic, wrote in the 1990s that New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was "arguably the best in the world".

In the 1980s, wineries in New Zealand, especially in the Marlborough region, began producing outstanding, some critics said unforgettable, Sauvignon Blanc. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is like a child who inherits the best of both parents—exotic aromas found in certain Sauvignon Blancs from the New World and the pungency and limy acidity of an Old World Sauvignon Blanc like Sancerre from the Loire Valley.

About the taste
No other region in the world can match Marlborough, the north-eastern corner of New Zealand's South Island, which seems to be the best place in the world to grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has been described by some as "alive with flavours of cut grass and fresh stone fruits", and others as "cat's pee on a gooseberry bush" (not necessarily meant as a criticism).

The Reason
A by-product of the modern age (and current worldwide economic condition) is that nowadays many wines from New Zealand are in fact bottled in Europe to save on the extra carriage incurred by shipping glass around the world. The result is that we can access great wines, such as this, at increasingly more reasonable prices.
