Squealing Pig Sauvignon Blanc
The nose is: salivatingly crisp, like a summer saladbursting with: juicy pineapple and lemon pith backed up by fresh green notes of basil and cut grass. The palate is practically exploding out of the glass it has so much energyweighty and refreshing with layers of lemon and lime pith with just squeezed grapefruit. Tangy citrus notes lead to a focused yet textural finish of white peach with delicious balance.
This wine is summer in a bottleat its best when young and fresh. Drink straight awayearly to savourthe vibrant aromas and liveliness.

Squealing Pig is a tale about a pig who wanted more from life than just his pig pen.
Squealing Pig wines are full of: omph, fruit – driven, flavour-packed and best enjoyed young.
Keen on wine, but not a fan of the bore that you get with it, in 2010 they trotted off on an adventure to the Squealing Pig Vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand, to make Sauvignon Blanc with personality. Eager to experiment with fresh varieties and styles, the pig soon spread their wings south to Central Otago, before globetrotting the world.
No matter where this little pig goes–New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, France, Italy, Spain –the Squealing Pig ethos remains the same: to make cracking wines that are approachable, flavour-packed and pair brilliantly with no-fuss foods. And to have more fun than anyone else doing it.
