Wine Spectator published an article by MaryAnn Worobiec, senior editor and lead taster on New Zealand wines, entitled “New Zealand’s Bright Horizon”. The article discusses how far New Zealand wines have come in the industry, the amazing wines the region produces and the accomplished winemakers who have contributed to the bright future New Zealand wines have. Worobiec says the demand for New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays is booming for good reason, these wines offer high quality and the majority of them cost $30 or less per bottle. “New Zealand is now the world’s 10th largest exporter by value.”
She also mentions, “At Dog Point, winemaker James Healy ages the Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Section 94 2011 (90, $36) for 18 months in older French oak barrels. These wines – and a number of the other top Sauvignon Blancs – exhibit an enticing range of aromatics and offer supple textures.” You can read more about all the great things New Zealand wines have to offer by click here.
