Today marks the 4th annual Day where producers, retailers and drinkers are encourage to crack open a bottle of the crisp vibrant variety and discuss in the worldwide social media gathering #SauvBlanc 

You can't go far wrong with the selection of whites we have in our range!

2010 Domaine Sautereau Sancerre, France. 

Aromas of nettle, grapefruit and passionfruit, plenty of citrus and mineral flavour, with a long, thirst-quenching finish.






2011 Shaw and Smith, Adelaide Hills, Australia

Clear, pale lemon. The aroma has restrained Sauvignon grassiness and some lime, grapefruit and passionfruit notes. The palate is fresh and lively with pure fruit varietal flavours and zingy, crisp acidity.
2012 Ponte Del Diavolo, Grave Del Friuli, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Italy. 

Certain to be a classic in terms of Friuli Sauvignon. The perfumes are fresh, with notable finesse and complexity. A complex array of aromas abound; it has a lovely white stone fruit character and a chalky minerality on the palate. It is completed by good acidity, perfectly in balance with the structure of the wine.

2012 Ca de Alte, Veneto, Italy.

Yellow in colour, this Sauvignon is surprisingly fragrant with ripe varietal characteristic such as notes of tropical fruit, mango and pineapple. It has good acidity and a fresh finish
2011 Delta Wines from Marlborough, New Zealand.

Classic Marlborough pungency and varietal definition. A favourite on the Glasshouse wine list.
Aromas of white currants, blackcurrants, nettles, and ripe tropical notes including passionfruit. A full palate, which finishes with fresh acidity. Currant and mineral characters linger for minutes.






Come in an enjoy the flavours at the Glass House today, we might even stay open a little later than usual for those on their way home for the weekend not to miss out!
