May is a big month for many reasons. The vineyards are wrapping up vintage, we celebrate our mothers (May 14), crown a king (May 6) and shine a spotlight on two wine varietals with International Sauvignon Blanc Day (May 6) and International Chardonnay Day (May 25).
With all that going on, we’ve made a list of our top wines to help you celebrate all that May brings us.
On Sauvignon Blanc Day – May 6
Falconhead Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Marlborough on the serene, northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, is world-renowned as the home of sauvignon blanc. The nights are cool and long, resulting in unique flavours and the 2022 Falconhead is a prefect representation of this incredible wine region.Tropical fruit and herbal aromatics lead into a salivating saline palate, with a core of fresh citrus fruit flavours. Serve with shellfish and a fresh salad, or with roast pork and apple sauce.
