Wine Regions

Our country is a landscape torn from the pages of epic fantasies and ancient legends. It is a country defined by its beauty–a place known for soaring mountains that roll into grasslands surrounded by 10,000 miles of pristine coastline. New Zealand’s majestic beauty is renowned throughout the world and now–due to brands like Kim Crawford – its vineyards are famous as well.

The unique and varied geography of New Zealand helps to insulate our vineyards and protect the grapes from the elements. With grapes grown between the latitudes of 34° and 47°, our growing regions cover a distance of 1,000 miles from the northern tip of the country to the southern coast. Such a large growing area gives Kim Crawford the distinct advantage of a wide range of local climates and soil types to promote distinctive regional flavours and characteristics.

The vineyards of Kim Crawford is located in outstanding, predominantly coastal sites. The grapes benefit from long days, clean sea breezes and crisp nights. In combination with New Zealand’s long and dry autumn season, our grapes ripen slowly, which allows them to build flavour intensity as well as develop a sophisticated acidity. In the end, it is this unique combination of factors–from regions and soils, to temperatures and growth rates–that give Kim Crawford a perfect balance of fruit and acidity. This ideal pairing of elements makes Kim Crawford more than just the perfect wine to compliment foods and occasions–it makes it the perfect wine to compliment one of the most stunning regions the world has ever known.

There are 5 main growing regions: Marlborough, Central Otago, Hawke's Bay, Gisborne, and Canterbury.
