Two nations with many similarities and increasing differences. Australia is familiar

for Chardonnays, both the powerful, oaky style but also the more versatile

"unwooded" type. Sauvignon/Semillon blends are common but Sauvignon itself is

more seen in parts of South Australia. New Zealand, conversely, celebrates

Sauvignon, particularly in its largest region, namely Marlborough. Different styles are

emerging - from the more herbaceous ones to more grown up versions with leesageing

and consequent good texture in the mouth. The aromatic varieties are also

becoming popular, particularly Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.

There is no doubting Australia's potential for high quality, exciting wines particularly

from clever sites that harness altitude and maritime cool.

New Zealand's wines continue to soar in popularity with wine drinkers, driven by the

exuberant, stylish Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs that have become the country's

vinous signature.
