Sauvignon Blanc Wine
Sauvignon Blanc is a common grape variety which is grown particularly well in New Zealand, Australia and Chile. The characteristics of the grape are traditionally fruity, acidic and there is a most distinctive aroma of gooseberries and grass. If the grapes are not harvested in their prime, they tend to lose their acidity and aromas. All of our Sauvignon Blanc
bottles and gift sets are harvested at their prime and have wonderful floral and tropical aromas with gooseberry, apple and grassy flavours depending upon the region they are from.
Sauvingon Blanc grapes tend to be fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel vats which maintains the distinct flavours of the wine. All of our Sauvignon Blanc Wine
are designed to be consumed when they are young. In France, Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a number of regions, the most famous being: Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, both of which come from the Loire Valley. However, the grape variety also grows well in Bordeaux. The cooler climate of the Loire allows the grape to ripen slowly, which balances the sugar and the acidity. The soil also affects the characteristics of the wine. For example, the chalk and the kimmeridjem of Sancerre and Pouilly impart a more spicy, floral and mineral flavour. Pouilly fumé soil is more flinty and gives a smoky, gun flint aroma to the wine, hence the word “fumé” which means smoky in French. We offer a wonderful Chilean Sauvignon Blanc called Las Montanas Sauvignon Blanc
which has floral aromas and gooseberry and grassy flavours on the palate.
