Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is a class act, and no mistake. It’s associated with some of the finest white wines in the world: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Sauternes. Add to that the fact that we’re asked to point out our New Zealand Sauvignons more often than any other wine style and you know there’s something about this grape that hits the mark. Now, whether it’s the ‘greenness’ you get with Sauvignon (think grass and nettles) or the parade of attractive fruit flavours (gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon and lime) or even the occasional tasting note of ‘cat’s pee’, you can betcha’ there’s something in there that appeals. Of course, there are significant variations in its flavour profile across the globe – many Loire Sauvignons have a unique mineral quality whereas New Zealand Sauvignon is often characterised by bright, upfront fruit. However, what’s in no doubt is that this grape doesn’t need to be thick skinned (it isn’t) – it’s got a huge worldwide fan club.
