A Wine Like No Other

Pittsburgh Live writer experiences a dash of spring fever courtesy of Marlborough’s world-renowned sauvignon blanc. “The wine’s style elicits both tremendous enthusiasm and vehement rejection, but overall, sales of NZ sauvignon blanc are soaring, with more than 800,000 cases sold in the US alone last year … [A] fortuitous convergence of factors makes Marlborough one of the finest places on earth to grow sauvignon blanc grapes.” Highly recommended are the 2004 Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc and 2003 Brancott Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc.
