Marlborough Sauv still on top after 30 years
The world has never seen a revolution in wine taste like Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It turned the accepted benchmarks upside down. The old world classics were threatened. Sauvignon Blanc had never tasted like this. So pungent; so fruity; so excitingly vibrant; almost shocking to the senses.
It was such a revolution that winemakers from France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria came to Marlborough, New Zealand, to be a part of it.
