More about this wine
The Rhone Valley is a long, narrow strip in the south of France. In practice, this region is divided into two sub-regions, each with its own type and identity - North and South Rhone. The northern part is best known for its legendary and long-lasting red wines, mainly from Syrah grapes: Hermitage, Ivory Coast, St. Joseph and Cornas, as well as the fragrant white Viognier from Condrieu. The south is home to the full Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, as well as the light Rose of Tavel. Chateauneuf-du-Pape can be a blend of up to 13 different varieties, 3 of which are even white. This is the main difference between it and Gigondas, where white varieties in the blend are not allowed. The most famous of these main red varieties are Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault, and the white ones are Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier.More wines of this region
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most famous white grape varieties, successfully found its way out of the home country France into a second one - New Zealand. The rapid development of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dramatic events in the world of wine. The intense and readily accessible flavour of a classic Marlborough is the main reason behind this success - fruity, intense, almost magical.The key selling point of Sauvignon Blanc is its straightforwardness – the flavours are rarely hidden away in the background, which makes Sauvignon Blanc an ideal wine with which to begin a journey in the world of wine. Classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas range from grass, nettles and asparagus to green apples and to more esoteric notes such as cats' pee, boxwood and gunflint.More wines of the same variety
