Abbotts & Delaunay Sauvignon Blanc Fruits Sauvage 2017

A Sauvignon Blanc from Languedoc - available at Majestic

Think of French Sauvignon Blanc and the Loire or Bordeaux first spring to mind; it is also grown, even if much less commonly, in the warmer climate of Languedoc.

As you might expect then, this wine is weightier than a Sauvignon from further north, while it also has a characteristic Languedoc expressiveness and is technically well made.

Abbotts & Delaunay Sauvignon Blanc Fruits Sauvage 2017 (Majestic, £9.99 or £7.99 mix six)  weighty yet fresh and expressive with citrus, tropical guava and passionfruit and a persistent leesiness. Aromatic and rich with a hint of pungency.

Match with goats cheese or white fish in a herb broth.
