Graham Norton the Irish comedian and chat show host, has launched his own wine. He’s created a sauvignon blanc with the help of New Zealand winery Invivo, which has partnered with Graham since since 2011.
Have you seen the wines in the background of Graham’s BBC late-night chat show? That’s Invivo Awatere Sauvignon Blanc.
Majestic exclusively stocks the Awatere and is also now exclusive retailer of the new wine, cannily called Graham Norton’s Own Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (available in all Majestic stores and on www.majestic.co.uk, at £8.99 (multi-buy price).
The wine won a silver medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London last month and Tim Lightbourne, co-founder of Invivo, sums up Graham’s blend: “The classic tropical flavours of the stony Wairau soils have blended exceptionally well with the punchy, vibrant and herbaceous characters of the more rugged Awatere Valley – something not always easily done!”
Graham himself says: “My perfect blend…and it’s lovely. Tropical fruit, a bit of zing…cheers to that!”
All of Graham’s royalties from sales will go to the Dogs’ Trust.
