New Zeland wine have become one of the biggest successes in the vine-growing scene worldwide. Vineyards are more numerous in the Northern Island, but it is in the Southern Island where great white wines are being produced. These wines are produced by "late harvesting" of the Riesling variety.
New Zeland's wine production, in its search for a place in a market as wide as that of wine, has tried to follow in the footsteps of neighboring Australia. That is to say, they are banking on mild wines, which are currently the ones most sought after, with the support of new technologies for production and for the wineries.
The main varieties of cultivated white grapes in New Zeland are Breidecker, July Muscat, Planet, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Palomino and Gewürztraminer. To produce red wines, the preferred varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Pinotage
