Hated by many, loved by many, in particularly by us. We believe that Sauvignon Blanc just needs a bit more sun and relaxed island life to bring out its charm and winning personality.
Sauvignon Blanc originates from Bordeaux and Loire, France, but it’s widely planted in many of France's wine-growing regions and also around the rest of world. It's particularly popular in New Zealand where it's responsible for some marvellous wines from Marlborough in particular. It reflects its terroir and climate transparently and when grown in cold climates it produces crisp, dry, minerally and refreshing whites. In warmer climates it shows more body and tropical fruit but always keeps its refreshing acidity.
Fun fact: Sauvignon Blanc is one of the parents to Cabernet Sauvignon – the other is Cabernet Franc.
