Sauvignon Blanc is originally from France but now it is grown all over the world in a myriad of styles. Here we compare a classic, Old World Sauvignon Blanc from Touraine in the Loire Valley to a New Worlder from New Zealand. The Pure Loire Sauvignon Blanc beautifully expresses the terroir of where it was grown; it shows minerality, crispness, and scents of fresh white flowers.
The Fire Road Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand expresses the bolder aspects of New World winemaking; the wine bursts with bright citrus juice notes, orange peel, and tropical blossoms. The 2015 recently earned an 89 point rating from the Tasting Panel Magazine.
