With the spectacular growth of the New Zealand wine industry has come the emergence of an elite group of wineries who are producing internationally acclaimed premium wine. This is the subject of Taste of the Earth, in which wine writer Keith Stewart focuses on 15 New Zealand wineries, capturing the essence of their individual approach to making great wine. An impressive list, the featured wineries are instantly recognisable throughout the world to lovers of fine New World wine: Kumeu River, Goldwater Estate, Millton, Ngatarawa, Stonecroft, Te Mata, Dry River, Martinborough, Ata Rangi, Neudorf, Cloudy Bay, Seresin, Vavasour, Pegasus Bay and Felton Road. Keith Stewart looks at the physical parameters of each winery, the attitudes and associations that underpin their culture of quality, and examines how they have dealt with the challenges of viticulture and wine making in this country's new terroir. The book is heavily illustrated with the superb photography of Kevin Judd, now recognised as one of the world's leading wine photographers, and who, as the winemaker at Cloudy Bay and photographer of The Colour of Wine, is a leading figure himself in the New Zealand premium wine industry. This will be a sought after, beautiful addition to the library of anyone with an interest in good wine. Also of interest on this site is Kevin Judd's The Colour of Wine book and companion calendar, Vineyards of New Zealand.
