Vinoble is proud to present a range of New Zealand wine Hong Kong. For such a small island nation, the country has made a large contribution to the world of wine, and set itself apart from its continental neighbor, Australia. French missionaries first brought Syrah and Pinot Noir to New Zealand, and Croatian immigrants too had a strong early influence. While early settlers were optimistic for the lands wine-making potential, it was not until the 1970s that the industry found its feet and vintners began experimenting throughout New Zealand. Today a preference for stainless steel over oak, and a warm maritime climate have give New Zealand wine a strong identity. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is considered some of the world's greatest, particularly that from Malborough. It is highly distinctive representation of the grape with a telltale flinty, grassy quality. Central Otago, Canterbury and Martinborough are well known for Pinot Noir that is fruit forward and accessible. Hawke's Bay has established itself as a preeminent producer of Bordeaux blends, due to the warm, dry nature of the climate, though Syrah and Viognier have more recently been on the rise. A variety of white wines beside Sauvignon Blanc are produced in New Zealand, including Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, and Chardonnay. With more than 2.5 million hl made every year, New Zealand wine has had almost unparalleled success in cultivating global interest as it continues to evolve today.
