Sauvignon Blanc

Originating from Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc is the most recognisable of all the classic grapes, with its grassy and green pepper aromas pretty evident wherever it is grown. It has proven particularly successful in Loire Valley on the typical Silex soils of Sancerre and Poully Fumé. In warmer climates, especially in Marlborough, New Zealand, it can deliver riper fruit aromas – blackcurrant, peach, even passion fruit.
