Tong No. 1: Sauvignon Blanc
phone order only
The first issue of TONG focuses on Sauvignon Blanc, a grape variety that has greatly influenced white wines worldwide over the last 20 years. Its new life began in 1985 with Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc that set a new standard for cleaner and brighter whites.
In this issue, we attempt to clarify its genetic background and aromatic structure and we search for the past and future of Sauvignon Blanc in the Old and New Worlds. Are Sancerre and New Zealand each other’s counterparts or have they deeply influenced one another? And what about Südsteiermark Sauvignon Blanc from Austria? Its structure and aroma appear to combine Old and New World styles. Is this the next superstar wine?
