Red Wines

From Central Otago to Matakana, New Zealand’s reputation for red wine production is gaining serious momentum, as well as its own distinctive style. Pinot Noir has been able to capture New Zealand’s unique terroir and rival Burgundy like no other. Hawke’s Bay is the oldest region in New Zealand and is now synonymous with some of the countries finest Bordeaux Blends. New Zealand reds commonly display bright fruit characteristics and there is always a new red wine to discover.
