Which is the most popular wine in the UK?
Think Pinot Noir? Sauvignon Blanc ,Chardonnay or even Merlot?
Sauvignon Blanc is the most beloved wine in every British town, city, and county. The second people’s favorite wine to top the list is Chardonnay.
Sauvignon Blanc means wild white and is one of the most widely planted wine grapes throughout the world. The wine is tart, refreshing and the flavours range from zesty lime to flowery peach. Wine lovers feel it’s the perfect party wine. For some, it’s the liquid equivalent of nails on a chalkboard and for a few, the flavors it gives even a Sauvignon skeptic can love. Sauvignon Blanc has always been the first love for all in the country. Most people adore it and are captivated by its crispiness, citrusy zing, and refreshing vivacity. All these qualities make it one of the best wine of all times.
The wine smells as well as tastes like a green vegetable, specifically bell peppers. The smell is relatively subtle and reminiscent of freshly cut grass. The wine is intense, herbaceous and flamboyant. That delicious wine taste comes from naturally occurring compounds called methoxypyrazines. Winemakers manage the amount of sunlight the grapes get by pruning the leaves that shade grape bunches and by making a decision which ones to pick from the vineyard.
Sauvignon becomes a different wine as it is aged in oak barrels instead of steel tanks. The climate of the region where the scrumptious wine is grown determines what character it will have, more than anything else.
The appetising beverage is an incredibly food-friendly wine. The bright acidity refreshes the latter as the citrus flavours accompany a broad-spectrum of cuisines. Moreover, the alcohol levels are modest, and finally, the herbal notes accentuate food much the way herbs themselves do.
