  • give interesting food for thought and succeed in introducing you to a galaxy of little known but worthwhile wines It pays to remember however that wine tasting is a business fraught with subjectivity You should always treat the views expressed in these pages for what they are one person s opinion The quality ratings Outstanding quality gold medal standard Excellent quality verging on outstanding Excellent quality silver medal standard Very good quality Good quality bronze medal standard Average quality Plain Poor No Star To be avoided Note Rated Tasted prior to bottling These quality ratings are based on comparative assessments of New Zealand wines against one another A five star Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon for instance is an outstanding quality red judged by the standards of other Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon blends made in New Zealand It is not judged by the standards of overseas reds of a similar style for instance Bordeaux because the book is focused solely on New Zealand wines and their relative merits Some familiar New Zealand wine brands in recent years have included varying proportions of overseas wine To be featured in this book they must still include at least some New Zealand wine in the blend Where brackets enclose the star rating on the right hand side of the page for example this indicates the assessment is only tentative because I have tasted very few vintages of the wine A dash is used in the relatively few cases where a wine s quality has oscillated over and above normal vintage variations for example Super Classic wines Classic wines and Potential Classic wines click here are highlighted in the text by the following symbols Super Classics Classics Potential Classics Each wine has also been given a dryness sweetness price and value for money rating The precise levels of sweetness indicated by the following four ratings DRY Less than 5 grams litre of sugar MED DRY 5 14 grams litre of sugar MED 15 49 grams litre of sugar SW 50 and over grams litre of sugar Less than 5 grams of residual sugar per litre is virtually imperceptible to most palates the wine tastes fully dry With between 5 and 14 grams a wine has a hint of sweetness although a high level of acidity as in Rieslings or even Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs which often have 4 to 6 grams per litre of residual sugar reduces the perception of sweetness Where a wine harbours over 15 grams the sweetness is clearly in evidence At above 50 grams per litre most wines are unabashedly sweet although high levels of acidity can still disguise the degree of sweetness Most wines that harbour more than 50 grams per litre of sugar are packaged in half bottles made to be served with dessert and can be located in the Sweet White Wines section However a growing number of low alcohol sweet but not super sweet mouth wateringly crisp Rieslings not designed as dessert wines and usually packaged in 750 ml bottles
