New Zealand in pictures

27th February, 2017 by Lauren Eads

Last month the drinks business travelled to New Zealand with New Zealand Winegrowers to explore this country’s diverse wine regions, from Central Otago in the south island to Hawke’s Bay in the north, via Christchurch, Marlborough and Nelson.

The trip was centred around the Pinot Noir New Zealand conference in Wellington [see here], attended by more than 600 Pinot enthusiasts, winemakers, journalists, buyers and sommeliers.

Prior to and after this event, a group of international guests of New Zealand Winegrowers were taken on a whistle stop tour of the country to meet its winemakers, discover its winemaking regions and see how increasing vine age, bottle age and a better understanding of terroir is contributing to the evolution of its wines.

While Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir were, understandably, key focuses of the trip, a wide variety of aromatic white varieties, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon was also showcased, showing that the country is far from a one-trick pony.
