2015 Berry Bros. & Rudd Good Ordinary White

Description

A classic Bordeaux white, made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc, this is carefully sourced from several great vineyards and blended just for us by Dourthe. Dourthe owns several leading châteaux, but – most importantly – is brilliant at blending fruit from around the region to create undeniably classic styles of red and white Bordeaux.

Intensely aromatic on the nose, showing ripe gooseberry and greengage fruit, the wine has wonderful lift and zest on the palate. Fresh and crisp, it has balanced acidity and a surprisingly soft finish. This makes a perfect apéritif, but is also delicious with seafood, goats’ cheese and asparagus.

About this WINE

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc

An important white grape in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley that has now found fame in New Zealand and now Chile. It thrives on the gravelly soils of Bordeaux and is blended with Sémillon to produce fresh, dry, crisp  Bordeaux Blancs, as well as more prestigious Cru Classé White Graves.

It is also blended with Sémillon, though in lower proportions, to produce the great sweet wines of Sauternes. It performs well in the Loire Valley and particularly on the well-drained chalky soils found in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where it produces bone dry, highly aromatic, racy wines, with grassy and sometimes smoky, gunflint-like nuances.

In New Zealand, Cloudy Bay in the 1980s began producing stunning Sauvignon Blanc wines with extraordinarily intense nettly, gooseberry, and asparagus fruit, that set Marlborough firmly on the world wine map. Today many producers are rivalling Cloudy Bay in terms of quality and Sauvignon Blanc is now New Zealand`s trademark grape.

It is now grown very successfully in Chile producing wines that are almost halfway between the Loire and New Zealand in terms of fruit character. After several false starts, many South African producers are now producing very good quality, rounded fruit-driven Sauvignon Blancs.
