New Zealand Explored

New Zealand has been a byword for quality cool-climate wines for the last 30 years, but it is one region in particular that has taken the world’s stage by storm, enthuses Christina Albon.

Whilst the North Island has the moniker of Land of the Long White Cloud, the same is not true of Marlborough on the South Island (officially known as Te Waipounamu), where some of the longest sunniest days in all the country can be found. It is in this cool, sun-filled climate that Marlborough’s staple grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc, grows so well.

Nearly 80% of the vines planted here are Sauvignon and the world has fallen in love with the passionfruit and lime-filled style, like that of Tanners New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Any wine under the Tanners Own label has to offer serious value and punch well above its weight, we also insist on winemakers of international acclaim, who are at the top of their game. Tanners NZ Sauvignon is no exception with the super-talented Ben Glover in charge of winemaking. Ben has made wine for all the top New Zealand brands as well as running his own family winery, so when the idea of a NZ Pinot Noir cropped up, to complement the Sauvignon, it was a no-brainer to ask him to blend one for us. After twelve months and many tastings, we’re delighted to launch the brand-new Tanners New Zealand Pinot Noir. This is the epitome of New World, cool climate Pinot – all juicy red fruits and savoury elegance.
