Friday, May 6th is International Sauvignon Blanc Day! Pour yourself a glass of Famille Sichel Sirius 2019, a classic Bordeaux Blanc blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, or raise a glass to New Zealand's Rapaura Springs Classic Sauvignon Blanc 2020.

The French may have given the world the term terroir  the wonderful alchemy of influences from soil, aspect, climate and winemaking that creates the unique character of a wine — but on the other side of the world, New Zealand winemakers have found their own distinctive ‘magic’ place.

Tūrangawaewae (pronounced: too-runguh-why-why) means "my place" in Māori. It describes a uniquely New Zealand approach to winemaking that includes terroir but also embraces the surrounding landscape, the characteristic climate, the history and spirit of a place, as well as the people who make it their home.
