New Zealand has developed as a serious wine producing nation only in the last 30 years. Thanks to the terroir in the Marlborough region and being at the forefront of technology (particularly in the use of stainless steel and screw caps) has meant its wine industry has grown out of the very distinct Sauvignon Blanc wines of Marlborough to a range of wines from its warmer North Island as well. UK clientswon’t want to know this but New Zealand enjoys the highest export price per bottle for its wine over any other country, including France, a testament to the quality of its product.
