New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – White Wine with a Zing

British white wine drinkers love the clean, overt, gooseberry flavour of Sauvignon Blanc, produced so well by wine-makers from New Zealand.  It may surprise UK shoppers though  that it’s not  appreciated as much in Europe or in California where they feel that this fruit driven in-your-face style lacks sophistication and their producers work hard in the vineyard and the winery to reduce the vibrant flavours of the grape.

There are arguments for and against both styles, certainly, a wine that’s zinging with aroma and flavour will overpower very delicate food, but for most salads, fish courses and chilling-out a New Zealand sauvignon blanc will hit the wine spot.

Shop smart! It’s rare to find a poor bottle of sauvignon blanc from New Zealand –  leave the ten pound plus on the shelf and put the cheapest  in the trolley!

  1. Strangely enough we oepned a bottle of this just last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Still not a big fan of the screwtops but it was a great accompaniment to our fresh fish BBQ and garden salads
