This year the Sau­vi­gnon Blanc and Dessert Wine cat­e­gories are made up ex­clu­sively of Marl­bor­ough based wines while Hawke’s Bay wines dom­i­nate the Syrah and Bordeaux styles.

A to­tal of 60 wines, in­clud­ing 17 new ad­di­tions, make up the 2017 list which is com­piled an­nu­ally by six of New Zealand’s top in­de­pen­dent wine ex­perts in­clud­ing Masters of Wine Alas­tair Mal­ing, Michael Bra­jkovich, Sam Har­rop, Si­mon Nash and Steve Smith along with Mas­ter Som­me­lier Cameron Dou­glas.

“The ba­sis of the Fine Wines of New

Zealand clas­si­fi­ca­tion is to recog­nise en­dur­ing ex­cel­lence. This is the achieve­ment of an out­stand­ing record of ex­cel­lence by top winer­ies and wines over an ex­tended pe­riod,” says Mas­ter of Wine Si­mon Nash.

Air New Zealand is a pa­tron of the

Fine Wines of New Zealand and pro­vides pro­mo­tional sup­port to the winer­ies on­board and via its mar­ket­ing chan­nels.

Air New Zealand Chief Op­er­a­tions Of­fi­cer Bruce Par­ton says, “New Zealand pro­duces some of the best wines in the world and food and wine tourism is a key rea­son why many in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors come here. Through this pro­gramme, we’re sup­port­ing wine­mak­ers to achieve greater suc­cess and chase the high­est qual­ity, whether that be through pro­mot­ing their vine­yards and wines to our cus­tomers or help­ing to open up ex­port op­por­tu­ni­ties off­shore.” Visit for more de­tails on the Fine Wines of New Zealand.
