Episode 54 – The Three ‘Bays’ of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Episode 54 – The Three ‘Bays’ of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc Episode 54 – The Three ‘Bays’ of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

In this episode, Shelley and Phil taste through three “Bays” of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. All are readily available and are from the same region of New Zealand (Marlborough) but that’s where the similarities end as they all have different price points and vastly different taste profiles. In honor of the upcoming International Sauvignon Blanc Day (#SauvBlancDay) on May 7, we are ending April with one of the easiest Summer sipping wines. Won’t you join us! #ThinkTheSummerThinkTheSunDeck #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime!
