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. In Canada, the variety is establishing a foothold in both the Niagara region of Ontario and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, it is one of the wine world’s darlings. Dry wines made from this grape are characterized by steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character. It is rarely oaked, except in California, where it has often been subjected to Read more »

  • Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is rather light in color, with a nose full of tropical fruit, mango, Meyer lemon, and a bit of pineapple over some hints of green grass.

  • Adobe White 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, which is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc from Paso Robles. This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend.

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...
