Admired for its fresh acidity and intense zesty flavours and aromas.

Sauvignon Blanc styles range from light and fruity, with tropical, citrus, gooseberry characters, to more herbaceous examples with nettle, snowpea and grassy notes.

Sauvignon Blanc has found a natural home in New Zealand’s dry, sunny Marlborough region.

The variety was first planted in Marlborough in the 1970s, and has since developed a cult following worldwide due to its unique and distinctive characteristics.
