Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is going through a “mid-life crisis”, US wine writer Matt Kramer has said. Addressing attendees of the first ever international Sauvignon Blanc Celebration in Marlborough, Kramer said this morning that the New Zealand region was facing a transitional stage, charting a shift from an initial 40 year-period based on “luck” to a new stage requiring “talent". "There’s some sense of a mid-life crisis here in Marlborough… a sense that somehow you’ve missed something,” he began.
