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’.

  • I did try the Repris Sauvignon Blanc again a few minutes ago, after giving it 15 minutes of air time.  It is better and more in line with my taste expectations, but still a bit different for a Sauvignon Blanc wine.  Oh, I did a short ride on my Harley Fatboy this afternoon and stopped at Hooters for some tasty chicken wings and a Devils Brew IPA...

  • I'm on the mailing list for a few wineries, but I generally don't order ... started with a Repris 2012 Sauvignon Blanc that for some reason I was not that impressed with.  I did drink it right from the wine rack though - so it was not refrigerated.  Does white wine change it's character that much from room temperature down to 45 F?  We only had...

  • No big secret that I was seduced by a well-known Snooth poster into the Myriad ... and rewarding days to come. Sauvignon Blanc is just around the corner, and then the flood gates open and Cabernet mayhem begins.

  • 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.
