Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay lies in the middle of North Island on the north east coast. It is New Zealand's second largest region, with an incredibly wide range of soil types. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape variety but the long sunshine hours attract a high percentage of later-ripening red grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
