Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is easily one of the most recognisable white wines on the planet. Everything from green fruits, citrus and tropical fruits to lovely floral aromatics. Historically it is found in Bordeaux where it is blended with Semillon to produce dry white wines or the luscious sweet wines of Sauternes. As a single varietal and in a leaner style it is famous in the Loire Valley specifically in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. However, New Zealand is the most famous home for it in the new world where Marlborough is king.
