Hawke’s Bay – A Place of Elegance on New Zealand’s North Island

I have quite elegant visual as well as flavorful memories of my recent visit to the Hawke’s Bay wine region of New Zealand. The vineyards stretch for miles along the seacoast, and the red Bordeaux-style wines are pleasingly well-made, as are the bold Syrah wines – though this is half a world away from France. The major municipality in Hawke’s Bay is Napier, a beautiful town built in the Art Deco style of architecture; it is a one-hour flight (or 5-1/2 hour drive) south of Auckland.

霍克湾——新西兰北岛的优雅之地

我最近到访了新西兰霍克湾葡萄酒产区,那里优雅的景色和美味给我留下了十分深刻的印象。葡萄园沿海岸绵延数英里,精心酿造的红色波尔多风格的葡萄酒和西拉葡萄酒口感甜美,虽然这里距离法国有半个地球之遥。霍克湾的主要自治市是纳皮尔,纳皮尔是一座由装饰艺术风格建筑构成的美丽小镇;这里距离奥克兰南部坐飞机要一个小时(或五个半小时车程)。

中奥塔哥,新西兰黑品乐的家

新西兰中奥塔哥的黑品乐葡萄酒闻名遐迩,我已早有所知,也品尝过一些,但当真正地第一次置身于中奥塔哥葡萄酒产区时,还是被这突如其来的奇幻之旅震惊了。 我们驱车从皇后镇出发,穿过一片似沙漠般的风景地带。公路两旁满是陡峭的岩石山脉,包裹在灰褐色的单调的风景中。然而,在一条山路之前,眼前景象忽然风格急变,山谷绿野肥沃,田野郁郁葱葱,眼前一片牧场和葡萄园似从天降,一条细长的湖泊点缀其间,一切如诗如画,宛若梦幻。

TASTING THROUGH CENTRAL OTAGO, Home of Pinot Noir in New Zealand: A Balance of Old and New, Fruit and Structure

Though I have heard about Central Otago’s famous Pinot Noir wines for years – and sampled some of them – I was completely unprepared for the magical experience of seeing the Central Otago wine region for the first time. We had driven up from Queenstown through a desert-like landscape with steep, rocky mountains on both sides of the highway, surrounded by drab scenery in tans and greys. Then suddenly we went through a mountain pass and a dreamlike green and fertile valley opened up before us, with miles and miles of lush fields, pastures and vineyards surrounding a very large, elongated lake. It was beautiful.

Bordeaux Advance: The Stunning 2015 En Primeur -- and What This Means

The wines were also wonderful at many of the other well known chateaux, including Mouton Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Leoville Las Cases, Ducru Beaucaillou -- with slightly more or less fruit and tannin depending on their styles and locations.
