Discover Sauvignon Blanc Wines
Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape type best known for producing dry white wines. Its taste distinguishes it from most other white wine grape types, making it light and pleasant.
The most frequent Sauvignon Blanc taste notes are tropical, tree, and citrus fruit. When the wine originates from a colder region, subtleties of dates, papaya, melon, and many aromas of herbs or dry underbrush are more prominent. You may detect pieces of English pudding, custard, and vanilla if you're exposed to oak. While it is perhaps best recognized for being the main white wine grape type in the Bordeaux area of France and the Loire Valley, sensuous Sauvignon blancs are also produced in New World wine growing locations like as Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley in California. In addition, Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for being part of the mix that produces the sweet dessert wine known as Sauternes in Bordeaux.
This grape variety thrives in both cold and warm regions and a wide range of soil types. As a result, it's a little more complicated. In New Zealand, for example, the kind of soil on which Sauvignon Blanc is produced has a significant impact.
About the Producer: Starborough Winery
Starborough Winery is a New Zealand winery with 160 hectares (395 acres) of Marlborough vineyards. Several wines from Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc are produced here, with special attention paid to the latter. The property consists of three vineyards - O'Dwyer Farm Vineyard, Long Lane Vineyard and Starborough Terrace Vineyard. Vine from O'Dwyer in the Wairau Valley produces grapes with more fruity characteristics due to the fertile, freely draining alluvial soil. This vineyard is planted with a blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. The Long Lane and Starborough Terrace vineyards are located in the Avatere Valley cooler on rocky, gravel soils resulting in richer and more mineral wines. The property is owned and operated by the Jones family who have been farming in Marlborough since 1865 and its name comes from the original Starborough sheep farm. Despite diversification in wine production, the Jones family remains true to its roots, with Andrew Jones leading the culture.
