New Zealand Wine
When it comes to selecting a good New Zealand wine, you’ll find that choosing one from the Marlborough region will be an excellent selection. While there are other wineries and New Zealand overall has a great reputation for producing some truly brilliant wines, with over 80% of exported wine coming from Marlborough it is what you're most likely to come across. If you can find them, we’d also recommend looking for wines from the Hawkes Bay region, as these offer a more subtle flavour and can be a good introduction if you're not used to the flavours of a strong Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
If you’re looking for something a little different from what New Zealand wine has to offer you can sample their excellent Pinot Noir wines or the Pinot Gris. There are also various Shiraz and Syrah available at times, although these are not grown in large qualities and may be priced at a premium, they do offer something extra special for the discerning wine consumer.
When looking for the New Zealand wine that suits your taste buds, you can search through all the offerings that we have at the BoozeBud online store. You can easily use the filters to find the specific style of wine you’re after, although when it comes to wines from New Zealand it’s hard to go past their Sauvignon Blancs. These are incredibly popular and have won many awards on the world stage for their excellence and quality. You might also want to try some of the Pinot Noir or Sparkling White wines that you can find at the local New Zealand wineries such as Squealing Pig, Brancott Estate, or Garage Project (who also produce excellent craft beers).
What do New Zealand wines taste like?
While New Zealand wine has plenty to offer the majority of their wines come from the Marlborough region, and most of those are Sauvignon Blanc, although you can find excellent Pinot Noir and other varieties. But as most people like the world-class Sauvignon Blanc that New Zealand produces, we’ll focus on those wines. In tasting these you’ll find they are quite charming when compared to the offerings as produced by other regions. Some say it is the location they are grown and the specific conditions that allow the grapes to properly develop over time, but it could be that New Zealand winemakers have put in the effort to properly develop and build on this excellent variety.
You’ll find the Sauvignon Blanc to have a tropical flavour and is quite high in its acidity. They can range from being dry to sweet, although the sweeter ones are still quite subtle in their flavour. They tend to have a light to medium body, and this is due to the stainless steel aging methods used. These wines tend to be highly aromatic and are excellent when paired with the right foods.
Where can I find New Zealand wines in Australia?

You can organise an alcohol delivery quickly and easily through our online store. We can deliver to most places all over Australia, popular locations include Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth.

All our deliveries come with a tracking code and this means that you’ll always be kept in the loop for exactly where your orders are. We use Australia Post the majority of the time, as we have found they are best equipped to handle the fragile nature of our packages. As a bonus, they’ll often send you a text message on the day of your delivery, and if you let them know you can’t be there to sign for it, they’ll take it directly to a collection centre.

One of the many benefits that come with shopping online is that you can do it at any time, and you don't need to drive anywhere! If you find yourself at 2 am suddenly realising that you need to get the wine and beers organised for the weekend you can get that sorted with no problems. With your alcohol delivery, it’ll need to be accepted by a person over the age of eighteen (18), this is just to make sure that we are complying with the current Australian Liquor laws. When you accept the delivery, we’d suggest you take a good look through the packages just in case anything has arrived in a damaged state; which can occasionally happen with fragile items. If anything is not as it should be, please take a few photos and contact our customer service centre. At that time, they’ll conduct a short investigation and offer you a refund on any damages that are caused by mishandling during transportation.
