More InformationSauvignon Blanc
Few white grapes are as universally recognisable. While most are content to aim for no more than citrussy simplicity, Sauvignon Blanc is irrepressible. Its intensely green verve, tart fruit and racy acidity have driven plantings in nearly every cool graperowing region on the globe. Though the south west of France and the more northern Loire Valley both claimed it as their own for many years, it has in the last generation found a new spiritual home in Marlborough, on New Zealand‘s South Island. Semillon posesses many traits which should endear it to grape growers. It is resistant to many common diseases and it ripens cheerfully to produce, if unchecked, high yields of relatively neutral juice. However, its buttery flavour profile gives it an unfashionable affinity with new oak and its aromatics are muted, especially while young, not characteristics which make it attractive as a varietal wine to the majority of today‘s drinkers. However with age it develops beautifully tertiary flavours of honey and toast and, if picked late in a particularly warm region like the Hunter Valley, tropical notes of mango and apricot. It originated in the south west of France, and the Graves and Sauternes districts of Bordeaux legitimately call it their own. Here it is ceding ground to the trendier Sauvignon Blanc, but it is in botrytis influenced sweet wines like Sauternes and Monbazillac that it achieves greatness.
