Straw color. Aromas of wet grass, underripe peach, and diced green bell pepper with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length pineapple chutney and honey-roasted peppers finish with no oak flavor. Big green notes of Sauvignon Blanc jump from the glass in this expression that will charm fans of the varietal.

Sauvignon Blanc

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.
