News that probably effects all wine growing regions in the world -
Marlborough's world-renowned sauvignon blanc wines could lose their distinctive flavours in the next 50 years as temperatures rise through climate change. Australian wine author and viticulture researcher Richard Smart is convinced that continued global warming will see the New Zealand grape-growing success story having to move further south and to higher elevations. He said there was no doubt that global warming had begun over the past two to three decades and its effects were being felt in European vineyards, with increased disease. Studies were already documenting earlier vintages. "As the temperature goes up, the regions will lose their unique climate that makes good wine. For example, Marlborough will have a climate like Hawke's Bay or Auckland, which do not produce the same style as Marlborough."
