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)

Happy International Sauvignon Blanc Day! 🙃

What better way to celebrate this Friday, than with a glass of Alto Adige Sauvignon Blanc. 🤗 This very old grape variety was introduced to Alto Adige from France at the end of the nineteenth century.🇫🇷 In the meantime, Sauvignon Blanc has become one of the region's leading varieties. It develops notes of gooseberries, passion fruit, elderberries, and black currants.

Thrilled that Simon’s Kekerengu Coast Sauvignon Blanc is Bob Campbell’s top sauvignon blanc pick of the New Zealand wines he tasted in 2018 - “Impressive wine with a pleasing oyster shell, mineral character. Kekerengu is a limestone-rich coastal area halfway between Blenheim and Kaikoura.” #kekerengu #96pointwine #nzwine #sauvblanc ...

Happy Sauvignon Blanc Day! Here is a look at our new label for our Kekerengu Coast Sauvignon Blanc. We first made this wine in 2006 and it remains very unique.

Citrusy and intense Sauvignon Blanc produced at the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand by the Allan Scott family.

Fresh, zesty, juicy and full of tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit. the natural acidity of sauvignon blanc produces a refreshing finish that will leave you wanting to pour yourself another glass. A true category benchmark.

💫🥂Three things to celebrate today… 1. It’s Friday. 2. It’s International Sauvignon Blanc Day #sauvblancday AND… most importantly, 3. IT’S MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND! So on that note, welcome to today’s Wine Babes Club feature…

🎬: Introducing Simone of _goodwinegirl #goodwinegirl

📍Based in Sussex, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇬🇧.


❝My first and fondest memory of wine was when my beloved Nonna would serve me a little glass to have alongside a serving of her exceptional slow cooked lamb ragù . My love of wine and appreciation for home cooking, influenced by my Italian heritage, was sparked at a young age and has stayed with me ever since.”

❝I've worked at the UK's leading wine specialist retailer for nearly 3 years and I'm currently applying do my WSET Diploma. I'm lucky to have some exceptional English Vineyards on my doorstep, but I really can't wait to travel to more iconic wine regions next year.”

❝Fun fact? My surname is the Latin word for 'Love’.”

❝Favourite wine? I'm a Chardonnay girl so I'll gravitate towards a white from the Maconnais.”

Cheers to Sauvignon Blanc!
.
Today marks #sauvblancday and what would Marlborough be without this popular variety, which is responsible for some of the worlds most distinctive aromatic dry white wines.
.
Not known for the typical savvy, Hans created a Sauvignon which is known for its complexity and balance which demonstrates its heritage: organic, single vineyard, handpicked and from the lowest yield. Resulting in a structured, seamless and perfectly integrated wine which has been nurtured and matured for 18 months on the fine lees. Giving it a wonderfully silky smooth complex finish.

I had the pleasure of enjoying these two Sauvignon Blanc's over the past quarantine period.

The first one is a classically styled Sauvignon Blanc with lemony colour. I got intense tropical fruit on the nose. Crisp flavours in the mouth and long fruity finish. •
The Winter ferment Sauvignon Blanc is a new world style wine.
After harvest, the juice for this wine was frozen for five months. It was then thawed and fermented in the heart of the Cape winter, producing a uniquely tropical style of Sauvignon Blanc totally unique for South Africa.
The wine has intense aromas of gooseberries, tropical fruit and sweet-grapefruit. The end result offers a rich mouth-filling texture.
Definitely worth a try!

🧜‍♀️ 5pm post work pre #internationalsauvignonblancday day drinkie & yet another aged Sauv Blanc🍷⁣

This 2013 ‘Pride & Glory’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from marisco_wines has held its own very nicely. Lovely citrus & acid with really savoury flavours that I find really appealing ❤️⁣

If you’ve got this one, I wouldn’t recommend keeping it a lot longer, I think she might have reached her straps in 2020💚 Although with wine you just never know, they surprise you all the time, that’s one of the reasons I love it so darn much! 🥰⁣

What will you be drinking tomorrow on #SauvBlancDay? Let me know below⬇️
