New Zeland wines have become extremely successful, and have become all the rage in the vine-growing world. The Northern Island has more vineyards, but it is on the Southern island where production of white wines is speeding up. These white wines are being produced by late harvesting of the Riesling grapes.
Wine production in New Zeland is following in the footsteps of its neighbour, Australia. In a market as wide as that of wines, it can be considered quite successful. New Zeland is basing its reputation on mild wines, currently the ones with the most demand, with the help of new technologies, both for the process of production and for the wineries themselves.
The main varieties of white grapes grown in New Zeland are Breidecker, July Muscat, Planet, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Palomino and Gewürztraminer. For red wines, the preferred varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Pinotage
