New Zealand is most famous on the world wine stage for Sauvignon Blanc, and with good reason. But here at Moore Wilson's we hunt out the best of all the white varieties from local producers, and spice it up with some international contenders from excellent wineries. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris (AKA Pinot Grigio) are the ubiquitous names, but there's plenty more out there: semillon (seh-mi-yohn), viognier, riesling, gewurztraminer...but if you're looking for something different, try Sauternes: a blend of botryticised Sémillon, Sauvignon blanc, and Muscadelle grapes. While the sweetness has given it a reputation as a dessert wine, it is in fact best served as an aperitif - the legendary Baron Philippe de Rothschild used to serve it early, half frozen, in tasting glasses or flutes.
