Sensational Sauvignons

Sauvignon Blanc is the grape responsible for getting many first time wine drinkers started on a path of vinous discovery. With its aromatic profile and full-on fruit aromas, it is easy to drink and remains probably the world’s most popular grape variety. Its style can vary depending on climate, soil and vineyard practice; give it sun and warmth and get ripe citrus; shade the grape bunches and keep them cool and gain “green” herbaceous aromas. New Zealand is the front runner in the Sauvignon popularity stakes, but South Africa and Chile are producing great examples, not forgetting France, where Sauvignon was a mainstay of the Loire Valley for centuries before New Zealand became a nation. This enticing case brings together examples from all four countries, combining and comparing the refreshing qualities of new and old world Sauvignon. From New Zealand’s iconic Cloudy Bay and Dog Point, Chile’s Casablanca with its inviting herb, lemon and mineral bouquet through South Africa’s zingy Long Beach to Bordeaux’s juicily refreshing Château Recougne, we have assembled a comprehensive line-up of wines featuring the world’s most popular white grape.
