Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon blanc is an exuberant variety with high acidity and a distinctive varietal signature. It makes a youthful, fresh and fruity wine with herbaceous aromatics and a zesty palate. New Zealand’s famous Marlborough style has taken the world by storm with pungent grassiness and gooseberry flavours. Cool climate Australian examples tend more towards passionfruit and tropicals and the variety is often blended with semillon in the west. Restrained and elegant wines with flinty minerality hail from France’s Loire Valley, while oak influence is evident in Bordeaux and California, where it is called fumé blanc. Sauvignon blanc is also grown widely in South Africa and Chile. Louise Radman Watch Cracka's Video Review
