Invivo Graham Norton's Own Sauvignon Blanc 2018
UNDER THE LAW OF HONG KONG, INTOXICATING LIQUOR MUST NOT BE SOLD OR SUPPLIED TO A MINOR IN THE COURSE OF BUSINESS.
Passionfruit, nectarine, feijoa and lime zest flavours. It is fragrant and intense, and delivers loads of tasty flavours backed by juicy acidity. A hugely appealing sauvignon with varietal purity and power, and finishes superbly long and refreshing.
He’s trod New Zealand grapes on the set of his famous show and blended Marlborough sauvignon blanc into an award-winning wine in a London apartment. This year, though, top talk show host Graham Norton and Kiwi winemakers Invivo headed to Graham’s own backyard to work their winemaking magic: Bantry House in County Cork, Ireland. Invivo cofounder Tim Lightbourne and winemaker Rob Cameron travelled over 20,000 kilometres to Norton’s summer location – complete with their precious cargo of six distinctive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc pressings. Then, over a reportedly riotous afternoon blending session the trio created Graham’s 2016 Sauvignon Blanc. Longtime sauvignon blanc fan Norton was well pleased with the result, but surprised the Invivo crew by inviting a lucky handful of Cork locals to pass judgement on the blend. Their verdict? “Very drinkable…I could drink a lot of that” and “absolutely lovely.”
