What makes New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc so unique?
The 2022 Better Half Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, is one of our favorite summer wines and one of the shop’s featured wines for August.
The estate’s winemaker, George Elworthy, likes to point out that the region’s maritime influence from the Southern Ocean (the Antarctic Ocean) delivers cooling breezes that help to preserve the grape’s natural freshness and aromatic character.
That’s just part of what gives this unique expression of Sauvignon Blanc its gorgeous kiwifruit, apple, and lemon zest flavors.
The Better Half Sauvignon Blanc is also one of the perfect-for-summer wines we’ll be pouring at next week’s complimentary tasting, Wednesday, August 9, 5-7pm.
The complete line up follows. Click here for all of this month’s featured wines.
We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday and we hope you are staying cool out there! Thank you for your support.
