Sauvignon Blanc

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Sauvignon Blanc is a bit of a chameleon of a variety, as it changes its character depending on where it is grown. Most famously in France’s Loire Valley, (especially in Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre), it is a rich dry white with distinct herbal notes in the nose and on the palate. In New Zealand, the flavors range from gooseberry to tropical; both styles have very good natural acidity. Certain areas in Chile also produce very tropical-driven examples with a touch of herbal character, while the typical California style is clean with melon and spearmint fruit with only traces of herbal notes.

Many styles of Sauvignon Blanc – especially those from New Zealand – are aged in steel tanks to preserve the aromatic qualities, while some producers in Sancerre or even in California age in wooden barrels; this for added texture and spice. Medium-full in body, Sauvignon Blanc is especially excellent paired with shellfish or seafood or lighter poultry with herbs.
