Sauvignon Blanc Tasted 6/2013

5. Root 1 Sauvignon Blanc (2012)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Average price: $10.99 from 21 stores
A bit subtle but nicely complex with dried herb, citrus and slightly nutty aromas. Rather easy going on entry, perhaps deceptively so, this does show a fine acidic spine and easy drinking medium weight on the palate with restrained and slightly creamy texture that shows a nice base of orange and candied pineapple fruit with almost a gingery cast to it. The finish is very clean but short as well. 86pts

  • 451405annwrite I like Duckhorn, Mueller, Joel Gott, Cloudy Bay, but I want to try some of these on the list. Thanks!


  • 345791gentlemanjack45 Merry Edwards 2012 Sauvignon Blanc was amazing; floral, nice perfume, grapefruit, pear, fig, wonderful acidity, complex, good body. Bet you can't buy just one, this one you buy by the case!


  • 1143518Rob Stoddard Clos du Val offers a pleasant and reasonably priced Sauvignon Blanc -- more I think for American palates than for European or Aussie/New Zealand tastes. Even though they're known for their reds, this white is worth checking out. Thanks however for these great recommendations.


  • 1192955shark37 What about Marlborough?


  • 380030lcd123 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc is always good. I am partial to New Zealand SB, but I'm open to trying some French versions.


  • 77774Lestat11331 Domaine du Rin du Bois from Loire Valley is a wonderful inexpensive Sauvignon Blanc for everyday drinking


  • 1298758macdermid2 Mohua is my favorite, but it's hard to find sometimes. Crisp, with lots of grapefruit, moderately priced. Have also enjoyed Frenzy which is reasonably priced.


  • 1300464Larry16 Fiddlehead Happy Canyon has been my favorite for years.


  • 491306YossiD My perspective is a bit different as I drink almost exclusively Israeli wines. I can recommend these: * Ella Valley SB 2012 - crisp, grassy, refreshing * Chillag SB 2012 (with 5% Viognier) - this one is atypical and very interesting * Barkan Reserve 2012 - typical refreshing SB at a bargain price * Henri Bourgeois Petit Bourgeois SB 2011 - obviously not Israeli but offered at a recent wine festival in Israel. Excellent almost fragile SB. If anyone's interested I've written about these in recent postings on my wine blog (yossiswinepage.wordpress.com). I hope it's ok to say that here - the blog is just for fun, nothing commercial.


  • 77774Lestat11331 For Israeli wines I do prefer the red. Yarden Cab or Galil Pinot Noir.

  • 77774Lestat11331 Hi Yossi, I do drink Israeli whits, I only prefer the reds. Golan Heights Chardonnay and Moscato are found in my cellar and on my wine list. I also have Shvo Chenin Blanc, Pelter Unoaked Chardonnay, and Golan Moscato. Really good whites


  • 95889FineWineMike SB is my favorite white...favorites include Duckhorn, Groth, Frog's Leap, St. Supery, Rodney Strong Provenance and Ladera.


  • 1297388highnoon Veramonte 'La Gloria' 2011 from Chile @ around $10:00 has that fresh citrus appeal with sidebars of apricot that keeps us coming back again and again. .

  • 1296095Lorrie503 I love Kim Crawford. Matua Valley is my everyday favorite.
