Learn the differences between these 3 types of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc's. Grab a glass and follow along!
This time we are going to be doing a blind tasting on three different New Zealand Marlborough Sauv Blancs. Even though New Zealand produces just 1% of the world’s wine, it still reigns as the “Sauvignon Blanc capital of the world.” This small country, comprised of the North and South Islands, is home to nearly 50,000 acres of Sauvignon Blanc.
You will recognize a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in your glass almost instantly as it has its own unique and special flavour profile, so we are looking forward to giving here these three different wines a try and identify their attributes:
