Sauvignon Blanc

(aka. Blanc Fume, Fume Blanc, Savagnin Musque)

Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’. This noble grape is also successfully grown in Washington State and in New York on Long Island.

  • Matanzas Creek Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Tropical fruit aromas of mango and banana to open with notes of lemon and spice following. Juicy and full bodied in the mouth, this carries a lot of vanilla and butter notes with some tart lemon and grapefruit, a burst of acidity on the mid palate and a nuttiness to the finish that smooths out towards more citrus and cream.

  • Soo... what's your favorite SB region? Do you have an inclination for wines from particular one? In my case it's Chilean Sauvignon Blancs, for numerous reasons. New Zealand's products are awfully overpriced here in Poland and there aren't many Napa/Sonoma wines around (either overpriced quality wine or nice price global moguls' products). The c...
