Wine Olympics - Sauvignon Blanc
Event #2 -- Sauvignon Blanc
WINNER: Huru Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
COUNTRY: New Zealand
There is so much more to this bottle of wine than just another pretty bottle. Over the last few decades, New Zealand's Marlborough Valley has established itself as one of the leading "savvy" growing regions in the world. The natural, straightforwardness of Huru Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc makes it easy to drink, especially for beginners. This complex wine has a full bouquet of fruit flavors, including pink grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, and lime.
The New Zealand men's rowing pair of Eric Murray and Hamish Bond took their second Olympic gold in the Rio Summer Olympics! Possibly the greatest team in rowing history. Murray and Bond have won 69 successive races at elite level in the men's coxless pair, with their record in that boat featuring two Olympic golds, six world championships and 16 World Cup triumphs. Congratulations to these amazing athletes for their Olympic gold and the stellar achievements they have made in their winning career!
