   - Soil: The diverse soils of New Zealand include gravel, clay, and limestone, with regions like Marlborough known for its stony, free-draining soils that contribute to the vibrant acidity and minerality found in its wines.

   - Famous Example: Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is an iconic New Zealand wine that epitomizes the bright, aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with its intense citrus and tropical fruit flavors, lively acidity, and crisp, refreshing finish.

   - Taste: On the nose, New Zealand wines often display intense aromas of passion fruit, gooseberry, and freshly cut grass, with hints of lime and herbs.
