International Sauvignon Blanc Day is

May 7, 2021

#SauvBlancDay

Sauvignon Blanc deserves its own day to be celebrated. This racy grape has achieved world-wide popularity, propelling Sauvignon Blanc to top-tier white wine status alongside Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

While the grape is grown all over the world, not all regions and sites are created equal.

As one of the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, sauvignon blanc can offer a wide range of styles and flavors.  Certain appellations have emerged as prime spots for growing sauvignon blanc — each with its own distinctive expression.

Sauvignon Blanc
is a Perfect Pairing

Chefs around the globe love the pairing potential of a crisp sauvignon blanc. From the tropical and stone fruit notes in warmer climates, to the bright minerality & citrus in cooler climates, sauvignon blanc gives the world’s culinarians a palette of possibilities.

Here is a close up look at the new label art for our Kekerengu Coast Sauvignon Blanc. We have kept the label blue but made it a little softer and added illustrations of ammonite fossils to represent the limestone soils and one of the seaweeds you find on the Kekerengu Coast. This label is on our 2019 vintage now available on our website (link in our bio)

Is it wine time yet? I think it is! The beginning of the month honored #InternationalSauvignonBlancDay and we can't stop drinking it! Sauvignon Blanc is the flagship varietal of New Zealand, and is typically a very crisp aromatic wine with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and cut grass. This Nautilus Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is sustainably farmed and vegan.⁠

It highlights a nice acidity and is very well balanced. It pairs well with cheese and shellfish, which is what we're having for dinner! To learn more about this vino or other sustainable wines, head to our post on TheSocialNY.com {Link in bio 👆🏽} Cheers! #thesocialny #internationalsauvignonblancday⁠

Described by Bob Campbell as “Intense, vibrant sauvignon blanc with sea air, mineral, gooseberry, lime and passionfruit flavours. A distinctive wine that gives a strong sense of place." Keep an eye out for our other new labels which are coming soon! #appellationmarlboroughwine #sauvblancday #nzwine #astrolabewines #KekerenguCoast ...

It’s International Sauvignon Blanc day! I’ve opened a bottle from babichwines. Their “black label” Sauvignon Blanc is food-friendly, having slightly more depth than less gastronomic examples, so it can be enjoyed both as an aperitif and paired with your meal. I’m having it with chorizo and broad bean risotto. Cheers! ...

SAUVIGNON BLANC DAY - Hj é dia Internacional da Sauvignon Blanc #sauvblancday é uma data criada pela Nova Zelândia para celebrar a casta.
.

A Sauvignon Blanc é uma casta de origem francesa, alguns dizem do Vale do Loire outros de Bordeaux. Controvérsias a parte, a Sauvignon Blanc é uma casta de maturação precoce, que se adapta muito bem a climas frios, gerando vinhos aromáticos e frescos.
.

Hiragami foi idealizada pelo imigrante japonês Fumio Hiragami, que no ano de 2001 plantou videiras em São Joaquim na Serra Catarinense.
.

A Serra Catarinense e seus vinhedos de Altitude disposta com um dos melhores terroirs para produção de Sauvignon Blanc no Brasil.
.

O Hiragami 77 Sur Lie é um excelente exemplar desse crescimento. Os aromas são pronunciados de frutas tropicais maracujá, goiaba, toque cítrico, maçã verde, notas herbáceos e de ervas, aspargos, grama e capim limão. No paladar é fresco e harmônico, com ótima acidez, sabores envolventes e persistente.

Happy #sauvblancday! Winemaker Damien recently got together with our manawinegrowers family to put together a collection of musings in celebration of this delicious variety - we love his contribution: .
. "Sauvignon can adapt like a chameleon, we feel taken on a journey of senses. Growing it organically is simply our duty to preserve its magic and place."

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL SAUVIGNON BLANC DAY TEAM! 🎉
To celebrate the day of NZ’s most iconic style of wine, I cracked open a bottle of the Brancott Estate Letter Series “B” and made a lunchtime picnic with all of my favourite Marlborough producers. All of this good stuff is local, what a region 🙌🙌 #stillpetitioningforawhitewineemoji #sauvblancday

Ahead of Sauvignon Blanc Day on Friday 7 May, we're sharing the stories of the people behind the success of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Until the 1970s, the conventional wisdom was that New Zealand's South Island was too cold to grow grapes. That was until Frank Yukich unexpectedly purchased farmland to create vineyards. Frank's remarkable decision brought together a place and variety that combined to produce one of the great global wine styles.

Frank was the son of Ivan and Mandica Yukich who immigrated to New Zealand from Dalmatia. The family bought land in Oratia, in West Auckland, to establish a vineyard in 1937. Their first house had no power or running water, and none of the children could speak English.

Despite his humble beginnings, by the 1960s Frank and his brother Mate had established Montana Wines. In the 1970s, Frank purchased a significant amount of Marlborough farmland without telling the company board, paying the deposit with his own money.

This decision proved to be an inspired one, setting the scene for a global phenomenon unprecedented in the wine world, with the release in 1979 of the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

“He changed the whole landscape of the New Zealand wine industry…. and he changed himself from an uneducated Oratia farmboy to a well-read and well-presented businessman equally comfortable in the company of vineyard workers or prime ministers.”

4th May is International Sauvignon Blanc Day, so what better reason to celebrate on a Friday? 🎊 One more reason for me to celebrate is that I’ve heard mudhousewines have launched a 50cl bottle in Tescofood for this wine which will be just perfect for all my summer evenings when I want just one or two glasses. What's your favourite summer wine? 🍷
