(V)This stunning wine from the Loire valley is 100% sauvignon blanc and is a classic Pouilly-Fumé. It’s made by the Mellot family whose roots in the region reach down over five centuries. The wine is fresh and zesty, full of exotic fruits, passion fruit and citrus aromas and with a dry, flinty minerality. Exceptional length. Enjoy as an aperitif, perfect with scallops or tapenade or of course with a platter of fruits de mer.

Few white grapes are as universally recognisable. While most are content to aim for no more than citrusy simplicity, Sauvignon Blanc is irrepressible. Its intensely green verve, tart fruit and racy acidity have driven plantings in nearly every cool grape-growing 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.
