The move away from Sauvignon-Blanc
Our love for Sauvignon Blanc has been one of the hottest affairs you could imagine. Seduced by its showy, up-front personality, we spent $440 million on the popular white drop last year. Much of the passion for the wine that exudes vibrant passionfruit flavours is directed towards Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. And much of what we are buying now is cheaper than it ever was. Down, down, down goes the price. And perhaps with it, also its trendiness is waning. Pinot Gris and Moscato might soon be our top drops, writes Tony Love in The Advertiser.
