It is well known that New Zealand produces the very best Sauvignon Blanc’s (although producers in the Loire and Bordeaux might well disagree!). Along with Pinot Noir, the countries other strength, over 73% of New Zealands exports to the UK are from these two vines.
A quick scout through my tasitng notes has highlighted just how many wines I have sampled from New Zealand. The following are five Sauvignon Blanc’s that come highly recommended. Hopefully all from producers you haven’t come across before.
