Most critics acknowledge that Henri Bourgeois is one of the best wine estates in France. The Bourgeois family has been making wine in the small village of Chavignol in the Sancerre region of the Loire for 10 generations. New Zealand boutique brand TerraVin, also based in Marlborough, recently released its 2013 sauvignon blanc. This elegant wine won a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge last year, as did the 2011 vintage. Winemaker Gordon Ritchie said a fifth of the 2013 wine was aged and fermented in French oak barrels. The Ohau Gravels is probably first new region to be developed in New Zealand for some years and it produces wines that are very fruit driven.The 2014 Ohau Gravels sauvignon blanc is another large mouthful of fruit, and will seem more familiar to those who like traditional Kiwi savvy.The wine did not offer as much satisfaction in the mouth.This is still a great wine, but earlier tastings of the same vintage gave more satisfaction. As many wine writers have noted there are no great wines, only great bottles.
