Central to the success of New Zealand wine is their temperate maritime climate, the unwavering passion of their wine producers and the highly distinctive nature of their wine styles.

Cabernet blends and Syrah flourish in New Zealand’s warmer regions, such as Hawke’s Bay, Auckland and further north.
