About New Zealand Boutique Wines

For the past 15 years, Joyce Austin, owner of New Zealand Boutique Wines, has been bringing to Ireland a collection of hand-crafted wines from New Zealand’s most exciting boutique wine growers. Joyce is a native of Dublin, who moved to Auckland twenty three years ago; from where she explores every nook and cranny of New Zealand’s more than 600 vineyards to bring together a collection of intriguing wines.

With 80 wines to choose from, the Irish wine enthusiast can savour our more hidden jewels from the North and South Islands of New Zealand – exceptional producers from five distinct regions: Hawkes Bay, Martinborough, Marlborough, Waipara, Central Otago and Nelson. No mass-produced brands; rather, a collection of estates with a common bond: small, meticulously managed vineyards with a low-yield philosophy and made by passionate owners placing their individual stamp on each wine.

With every corner you turn in New Zealand’s dramatic landscape, a more stunning view appears. Extreme differences abound in scenery, climate and soil types. These wines offer a taste of that exotic difference.

A luscious mix of Rieslings; crisp, richly fruited Rosés; Sauvignon Blancs with weight and elegance; Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Gewürtztraminer in the richer style of Alsace; richly weighted Viognier; Chardonnays with complexity yet restraint; Pinot Noirs with their their distinct regional hallmark; and, spicy savoury Syrah.

It’s a diversity of styles that show the true breadth of New Zealand.
