Kyra Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Kyra is Old World meets New World, in a best both worlds scenario. The grapes come from Bordeaux, where Sauvignon Blanc originated, but they were turned into wine in London using a yeast developed in South Africa in collaboration with an Australian university. Combining elements from three different continents has created a truly world class Sauvignon Blanc. Its elderflower, peach, lemon, grapefruit and spice notes are so fresh and so clean, it’s like Sancerre sorbet.
Renegade Urban Winery’s labels include the diverse faces of the British public. Their new Sauvignon Blanc features Kyra, who has Filipino heritage, grew up in Hong Kong, now lives in Hackney and works for a record company. We imagine she can spot a future Number 1, and that’s why she put her name to this vegan-friendly Sauvignon Blanc.
After visiting vineyards and urban wineries around the globe, Warwick Smith was inspired to launch the capital’s second winery, Renegade. His top-quality fruit is sourced from small growers around Europe and is transported to London in refrigerated trucks before being lovingly pressed by hand and foot beneath the train tracks in Bethnal Green, London. As Renegade put it, urban wineries are “breaking the rules one bottle at a time”, making them one of the most exciting things to happen to the industry in a very long time. For that reason, any true wine lover or appreciator of artisanal products needs to be all over the urban winery scene.
