May Grape of The Month: Sauvignon Blanc

Welcome to our May Grape of The Month feature – this month celebrating Sauvignon Blanc!

One of the most famous wine grapes in the world, the ever popular Sauvignon Blanc is a firm favourite here at The Wine Centre HQ – and it’s easy to see why! Originally found in the Loire Valley, French Sauvignon Blanc is noted for it’s succulent aromas, minerality & light body – while other ‘New World’ regions such as New Zealand’s Marlborough region produces some fantastic tropical fruit laden Sauvignon Blanc. Ideal to pair with a wide range of foods such as white meats, soft cheeses and fish – Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect wine to help kick-start your summer!
To showcase the difference in flavour profile between a French and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, we have pitted the Versant Sauvignon Blanc from southern France up against The Ned from the famous Marlborough region – both currently priced at €14.99 each. If light, fresh citrus notes and hints of peach & pear are you thing, try the Versant – if bold, crisp bursts of lemon & lime sound more like, go for The Ned!
Versant Sauvignon Blanc

Le Versant Sauvignon Blanc

A lovely nose of light, fresh citrus notes & ripe fruits such as peach and pear. Very pleasant on the palate, lively and delicate with a well balanced freshness. Ideal as an pre-dinner aperitif, or with lighter dishes such as white meats and grilled fish.

The Ned Sauvignon Blanc


From the stunning southern valleys of the Marlborough region has vivid aromas of freshly cut grass and herbs with bursts of lemon and lime on the palate with an overall striking balance of fruit concentration and freshness. The crisp, bold and refreshing nature of this wine will pair beautifully with vegetarian cuisine and fish or white meats.
