NZ predicts Sauvignon Blanc shortage

zin1953 | Jun 8, 201507:10 AM

"News of an upcoming Sauvignon Blanc shortage has been confirmed by New Zealand Winegrowers as the 2015 vintage is almost one third smaller than last year.

"23,000 hectares of Marlborough’s total land area of 28,000ha are planted to vines, leaving little room for the region to respond to a rising global demand for its distinctive wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. Due to a cool spring, which affected fruit set in vineyards, particularly the country’s flagship Marlborough region, this year’s vintage totalled 326,000 tonnes – down 27% on the record 2014 vintage."
