Hawke's Bay information

Hawke’s Bay is in the North Island of NZ,300km North of Wellington and 360km South of Auckland and is one of the warmest places in New Zealand. This makes Hawke’s Bay the best place for full-bodied red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.

Hawke’s Bay has a very similar climate to Medoc in Bordeaux but grows many different varieties. Different areas of Hawke’s Bay have different soil types making the best Chardonnay in New Zealand as well.

Hawke’s Bay is NZ’s oldest wine region with 92 independent wineries specialising in the best quality limited edition wines.

Over 80% of New Zealand’s annual vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah wines come from Hawke’s Bay. Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Merlot wines are described as having “luscious ripe fruit flavours that acquire complex structure and elegance with age”. The wines combine the best of Old World structure and the New World purity of fruit flavour.

Nowhere else in New Zealand can make rich, elegant, ripe red wines at their best based either on Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah and some of the finest, complex Chardonnay’s in the New World.

In just the last three years Hawke’s Bay wines have won 14 Trophies and 70 Gold Medals in international wine competitions around the world. Some of Hawke’s Bay’s best red wines have been tasted blind against wines from Bordeaux in France and Bordeaux experts found it hard to tell the difference between the two regions. Hawke’s Bay wines are the closest comparison to Bordeaux wines of any wine region in the world today.

More than sixteen Hawke’s Bay wineries are actively exporting wine to some parts of China today.
