Sauvignon Blanc – to keep or to drink? That is the question!

Wine Spectator yesterday reported about a vessel sinking with a few containers of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc aboard and commented tongue-in-cheek on how the Sauvignon Blanc with screwcap closures would mature underwater, given the latest tad of cellaring wines under the sea.

While screwcaps and salt water might not be the ideal combination when maturing wine, the story made me think about the maturation potential of Sauvignon Blanc and even more than that – the different opinions on the subject!

Jancis Robinson explains why more than for other varieties, perhaps the opinions on Sauvignon Blanc and its maturation always get people talking. “Sauvignon Blanc is a strange grape. It evokes strong reactions. Those who love it, love it with a passion. Those who find its flavours less than subtle, tend to be less than subtle in their criticism of it.”
