Winemaker's Notes

Grape Source Protected by mountain ranges from the harsh weather coming east from Australia, New Zealand's eastern coastline is a magical spot for making fine wines. This 54% Sauvignon Blanc and 46% Semillon blend is an exquisite expression of the area's white wine character.

Winemaking Azure Bay 2002 East Coast New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the varietal's natural fruitiness. The resulting wine is a bold and refreshing wine, punctuated with crisp flavors of grapefruit, guava, green melon and a kiss of passion fruit, complete with a clean finish.

Food Recommendations Try this delectable blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon with poultry, vegetarian, and fresh seafood dishes, especially with shellfish. For the more adventurous, the vibrant fruit flavors of this Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon will also pair very well with grilled prawns or steamed mussels, served with fruit kabobs and lemon butter.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
