Like a little black dress or a pair of well-fitted olive chinos, a sauvignon blanc always looks good and will never go out of style. And, as we edge closer to summer, it’s never been more on-trend to sit with some friends and take a refreshing swig from a chilled glass. Or from a mug alone on the couch. No judgements; this is a safe space. 

And who could blame you? Dry… sweet… tart... hints of passionfruit… sessionable. However you want it, the mighty savvy b always delivers. You might say it’s the greatest tipple that ever existed. There. We said it.

But what’s truly remarkable—and what makes it reign supreme over its mates—is you don’t have to remortgage your house to get a decent drop. 

And don’t get us wrong, you also shouldn’t slum it with absolute piss.
