About New Zealand Chardonnay

Chardonnay strongly reflects the unique terroir of New Zealand and shows diversity across the winegrowing regions.

The versatility of this grape makes it a perfect canvas for viticulturists and winemakers to craft masterpieces.

A wide-range of Chardonnay styles are produced in New Zealand, from fruit-driven and unoaked, to luscious examples with complexity, elegance, and a touch of oak.

During the 1990s, plantings of this internationally fashionable variety exceeded those of every other grape, today top quality Chardonnay can be found in every region. Chardonnay now accounts for 6% of the wine production and 2% of the exported wines.

Marlborough (1.086ha) and Hawke's Bay (1,084ha), the two biggest winegrowing regions in New Zealand, have by far the most plantings in the country. They are followed by Gisborne (620ha), Nelson (111ha), North Canterbury (90ha), Auckland (81ha), Central Otago (68ha), Wairarapa (54ha).

Typical regional Chardonnay styles in New Zealand

In warmer regions, the Chardonnays are typically full-medium bodied, round, with rich flavours.
