Wine Double Feature

A Malaysian Star story on the NZ wine industry takes as its focus the award winning Villa Maria winery. According to the writer, NZ “has developed a unique niche on the world wine stage, with wines characterised by an intensity in flavour that’s directly related to climatic conditions.” The Richmond Times-Dispatch featured a broader overview of the “wacky and fascinating” world of NZ wine. Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are recognised as the strongest varietals, with Allan Scott, Cloudy Bay, Giesen, Goldwater, Grove Mill, Isabel, Matua Valley, Nobilo, Omaka Springs, Te Mata and Villa Maria named the vineyards to watch.
