Sauvignon Blanc is native to Bordeaux and is a relatively new grape to the world of wine. But that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the most-planted varieties globally. Sauvignon’s international appeal lies with its refreshing, citrusy and herbaceous character. There’s Marlborough’s tropical-fruit styles to the Loire’s elegant and grassy Sancerre – with plenty in between. South Africa’s Western Cape and Chile’s Central Coast in particular offer incredible-value wines that should not be overlooked. And, of course, don’t forget white Bordeaux.
