New Zealand’s white wine selection now extends far beyond Sauvignon Blanc, and is producing great examples of Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer as well as some classic European aromatics like Grüner Veltliner, Arneis and Viognier. New Zealand’s cool maritime climate allows these white wines to retain natural acidity whilst demonstrating the diversity of their individual terroir.
