Graham Norton once again locked himself away with the team at Invivo & Co to blend his Sauvignon Blanc, and this time he invited a celebrity guest to help out…

This year marks the release of the 6th vintage of Graham Norton’s Sauvignon Blanc, and it’s the fifth vintage that the star has been seen creating the blend with the Invivo & Co team.

New Zealand winery Invivo & Co again brought samples of Marlborough SauviGNon Blanc to Graham in London, for a three-hour session of tasting and blending, but this year, The Wine Show star and Personality About Town, Joe Fattorini, was drafted in for his expert opinion.

Once the blend was finalised and approved, Invivo winemaker Rob Cameron took the final recipe back to New Zealand to create this year’s vintage.

Fattorini said: “The blending process Graham and the Invivo boys go through is exactly what you’d see at any winery in the world… this is real winemaking, by people who care deeply about what they’re doing.”

The next release of GN Sauvignon Blanc will be on sale in all 10  countries where the wine brand is currently available.

Cameron says the 2019 wine is “Delicious! 2019 has been a great vintage and Graham has characteristically weaved his blend between parcels with herbaceous characters and other with more tropical and citrus notes. Overall the wine is a beautifully bold statement of Sauvignon Blanc which I’m sure will be a hit with all GN fans.”
