Thirty grapes in thirty days: Sauvignon Blanc

Spanish Wine

Welcome all discerning drinkers!

To celebrate the month of December (and Christmas!) we are blogging about thirty different grapes for thirty days. For each grape there will be food recommendations, tasting notes and fun facts. With over 10,000 grape varieties in the world it was hard to choose which grapes to talk about! See below for our pick of the best which include the popular, the favourites and perhaps the unknown…

Day 1: Sauvignon Blanc.
A great wine with a great reputation! A typical Sauvignon is a pale yellow in colour with green overtones. Arguably the best Sauvignon Blanc’s come from the New World, particularly Chile and New Zealand. However we mustn’t forget the famous region of Sancerre in France.

Food recommendations: Outstanding with shellfish and trout. A perfect match with all sea beasties including rich and meaty barbecued prawns. For vegetarians this is the perfect wine for fresh salads and goats cheese.
