Wine of New Zealand
New Zealand is a premier new-world wine country, producing award-winning wines that reflect the clean air and sunshine. Marlborough is a well-known wine-producing region in this country. A combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines. The most popular varietal is Sauvignon blanc, closely followed by Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
