New Zealand: A seemingly endless, untouched and deserted nature, no neighbors far and wide and more sheep than people. New Zealand is not even as big as Italy, but passes through three extremely different climate zones.
Unique like the nature are the wines. These enchant with pure, clear and immediately present flavors. 2200 hours of sunshine, cool nights and a long ripening period provide the unique flavors. A range of soils and climates allow for a variety of wines.
