Winexpert Private Reserve New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and distinctively aromatic. Herbaceous and grassy scents balance nicely with the subtle fruit. It has a crisp finish and aromatics fill the glass. This style assails the senses with bell pepper and gooseberry characters, lush passionfruit and tropical fruit overtones. Other notes include fresh cut grass, grapefruit and lime.
The ‘zing’ of Sauv Blanc is a delightful complement to the fresh flavours of seafood, shellfish and white fish, and enhances citrus or garlic based sauces.
Crunchy summer salads and capsicums resonate with the flavours of Sauvignon Blanc, with both the wine and dish being complimented by the match.
Tangy foods, such as tomatoes and vinegar-based dressings, are also ideal food matches. On its own, is a mouth-watering aperitif, especially on a bright summer’s day.

Native to the Bordeaux region of France, Sauvignon Blanc is now planted world-wide including New Zealand, California and Chile and many other growing regions. Sauvignon Blanc ranges from crisp, dry and in California to over the top aromatics and fruit when expressed by New Zealand winemakers.
Marlborough garners much acclaim for its cool climate Pinot Noirs and of course New Zealand's signature Sauvignon Blancs. The region enjoys plenty of sunshine and the moderate temperatures see a strong swing between day and night, fostering strong varietal expression.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
Great for food, medium bodied wines typically have alcohol levels below 14% and less oak.
No oak is present as is the case for most whites, rosés and light, fruity reds.
