While it may lack the dimensions of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc’s greatest attributes lie in its fabulous array of aromatic qualities, which vary according to its production location and its treatment in the cellar. This variety originated in France—the famous white wines of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume—and is also an important blending variety in white Bordeaux. Not appearing in New Zealand until the 1970s (initially in Auckland and later with spectacular success in Marlborough) it is now the country’s most widely planted variety and has established itself as New Zealand’s flagship wine the world over.
