Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc, a very recognizable white wine that is popularly dry, refreshingly zesty, and has strong, fruity and herbal characteristics. Ever hear of the term “pyrazines?” It’s a term noting the strong herbaceous flavors that are derived from compounds called Methoxypyrazines. These compounds are also found in bell peppers!

A flagship varietal to the Loire Valley in France (Sancerre) and New Zealand, the Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand tend to be more aromatic and have tropical fruit notes than those from the Bordeaux or Loire Valley regions in France. Usually fermented in stainless steel vats, Sauvignon Blanc gives a clean, crisp flavor with occasional mineral notes, but no characteristics from oak, like you would normally see in a grape varietal like Chardonnay. However, look out for Fumé Blanc, this style of wine is an oaked-version of Sauvignon Blanc.

Marlborough, New Zealand

New Zealand is an isolated country in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. The country is composed of two long main islands, called simply the North Island and the South Island. Located on the north end of the South Island lies the marvelous Marlborough region. As a pioneering wine district, Marlborough is probably the most revered wine-producing region in this small country, accounting for 62% of all wine produced in New Zealand. You can think of Marlborough as the quintessential sauvignon blanc territory.
