Given that it’s one of the UK’s favourite wines, you’ve probably come across Sauvignon Blanc before. It is grown everywhere from France to Chile and lots in between.
Ours originates from New Zealand’s best known and best loved region of Marlborough, which benefits from endless hours in the sun and a coastal climate which helps develop the distinctive crisp, gooseberry tang. And it’s exactly that tang that makes it pair so brilliantly with seafood and Thai flavours.
Geek Fact: The Sauvignon Blanc grape is the same one used in white Bordeaux, as well as Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre in the Loire.
