As we celebrate Sauvignon Blanc across the world, I’d like to share with you a dozen of favourite Savvies that I have reviewed over the last 12 months.
I love Sauvignon Blanc, from the pungent herbal, capsicum and armpit, to the riper juicy and tropical, to the barrel and wild fermented savvies – if they have been well made, I love them all.
There is so much diversity in styles of Sauvignon Blanc produced across the regions, the influences from the different terroir, the viticulture / winemaking techniques, that every now one I taste is a whole new experience – no two are alike.
Sauvignon Blanc is by far the most planted grape variety in New Zealand making up 73% of total production and 86% of wine exports, as seen in the image below.
