Sauvignon Impossible To Overlook

“In New Zealand’s case, the elephant in the room is Marlborough sauvignon blanc,” Bill Zacharkiw writes for The Montreal Gazette. “While most emerging regions struggle to communicate who they are, few have been as successful as Marlborough. Marlborough’s bright sunlight, cool climate and large swing between day and night temperatures give the grapes their intense aromatics and naturally high acidities. With the rapid expansion, vineyards were put everywhere. The wines have powerful and complex aromatics, ripe passion fruit and lime, combined with varying levels of green — from grass to jalapenos to asparagus. The high acidities give them an incredible vibrancy on the palate.”
