Adventures in New Zealand
Adventures in New Zealand Friday, 28 February 2020
When you make the decision to travel as far from the UK as it’s possible to go, you want to make sure that there’s going to be a decent vineyard (or two) to visit.
New Zealand exploded onto the UK wine scene in the late 80’s with the iconic #CloudyBay
Many other names followed, demand increased massively and, thankfully, quality held up and prices didn’t descend to the “bargain basement”, sub £5 a bottle level.
Both the region of #Marlborough and the grape variety #Sauvignon are key to New Zealand’s wine success story. You’ll see these names on almost every NZ bottle on a supermarket shelf with the likes of Oyster Bay, Brancott Estate & Villa Maria seemingly on permanent “deals”.
But there is life after “Savvy”, even if everyone is still in love with the style!
Whites, from Albarino, Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris (and even old faithful, Chardonnay) can be had from exciting small producers, along with some of the best #PinotNoir reds found outside of Burgundy.
From the North Island, there’s Syrah from Waiheke, Bordeaux-inspired wines from the Gimblett Gravels (using blends of Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet to great success) and fantastic Pinot Noir from Martinborough.
In addition to the ubiquitous Sauvignon Blanc, the South Island has also become a source of some great reds from Central Otago and, more recently, wines from Canterbury and Waipara are making their mark.
There’s just so much that NZ has to offer and, here at #FraziersWineStudio we’d like to show you something a bit different. Come and taste!
