Diverse Wine Varieties this year

While usually New Zealand is known to be the flagbearer of some of the most complex and interesting blends of wine. Other places like Italy, South Africa, California, and Chile have also expanded their horizon of plantation and have produced of late some of the most delectable blends, which are nothing short of pure magic.

The Sauvignon Blanc, which is known to be a food-friendly white wine, is a good alternate to Chardonnay. One of the issues being faced by connoisseurs while tasting Sauvignon Blanc varieties is that it’s usually hard to distinguish one from other.

A good Harvest year for wine

This time, however, this was not such a problem because the harvest was good, the wines were treated and aged to perfection. One could easily distinguish the wines from Pouilly Fume in France, from the Sonoma County variety, the New Zealand wines from the ones from South Africa.

Ranging from strong fruity fragrances to the more subtle and muted notes, there is a range of distinct wines produced, and people across the world are going to have access to some of the most carefully blended wines that will surely take the game up by several notches.

The Legendary Sauvignon Blanc

The 2020 La Crema Sauvignon Blanc Knights Valley is a wine that is barrel-fermented for a period 28 days. A Sonoma County Wine Maker, Mr. Craig McAllister is of the view that this is the reason this particular wine has a minimum touch of oak notes and more texture. This wine he says best pairs with ceviche, fried fish, and oysters.

The global surge of Sauvignon Blanc has happened undoubtedly because of New Zealand’s influence and some of the finest bottles of the same have been produced in the Marlborough region. The variety produced here is best paired with buttered scampi.
