    Variety Description

    Sauvignon Blanc

    Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. Sauvignon Blanc is widely cultivated in France, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa, and California. Depending on the climate, the flavour can range from aggressively grassy to sweetly tropical. In cooler climates, the grape has a tendency to produce wines with noticeable acidity and "green flavours" of grass, green bell peppers and nettles with some tropical fruit (such as passion fruit) and floral (such as elderflower) notes

    Country Description

    New Zealand

    New Zealand wine is largely produced in ten major wine growing regions spanning from north to south Northland, Auckland, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Wellington, Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury/Waipara and Central Otago. New Zealand red wines are typically made from a blend of varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and much less often Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec), or Pinot Noir. In white wines Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc predominate in plantings and production. New Zealand is home to what many wine critics consider the world’s best Sauvignon blanc

    Region Description

    Marlborough

    The Marlborough Region is one of the regions of New Zealand, located in the northeast on the South Island. Marlborough can lay claim to starting the modern New Zealand wine industry. Here in the late 1970s, Marlborough produced Sauvignon blanc, among other varieties, which led to confidence that New Zealand could produce interesting wine. Today, the Marlborough wine region represents 62% of total vineyard area in the country. The king varietal here is Sauvignon blanc, closely followed by Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Sauvignon blanc from Marlborough offer unique aromas and flavours, which earns them much praise from wine lovers around the world.
