Northland is New Zealand’s oldest yet youngest wine region. It was the place where Rev. Samuel Marsden first planted grapes back in 1819 and Dalmatian migrants planted the seeds of the modern industry in its gum fields. Chardonnay has a natural home here, especially this creamy, weighty, fleshy style. This is the last opportunity to taste this wine as sadly the vineyard has been pulled out, so enjoy the buttery, nutty, stonefruit and spiciness while you can. Hawaiian pizza, yes!
