I haven’t always liked white wine.

A few years ago, I was in work when  my boss suggested that we  go out for lunch to our local bistro.

Coming from a wine-producing country, where wine is part of the lunch menu, I couldn’t resist having a glass of wine with my lunch. However, I didn’t really feel like drinking my classic choice of Rioja Reserva (a full bodied red wine with a lot of personality).

My boss noticed that I was having trouble choosing a wine from the wine list   and so she said “You have to try this Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, I’m sure that you will like it.”  I thought to myself no way am I having a white wine. But after a couple of seconds I decided to take her advice and try it.

I was completely shocked, this white wine was nothing like the  previous white wines I had tasted; it was full of flavour and fresh aromas.

Since then, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has become one of my favourite wines, especially when I am just looking to have one glass of a refreshing, zesty wine.

3 things to know about Sauvignon Blanc:

  • It’s fresh, fruity and herbaceous.
  • A perfect wine to start learning about wines, as it is packed full with aromas and flavours.
  • Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Bordeaux Blanc and Fumé Blanc are Sauvignon Blanc wines.
