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 »

  • Lake Norman Winery Sauvignon Blanc Sandbar 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is an excellent Sauv Blanc made by a winery in North Carolina sourcing Russian River grapes. On the nose is light lemon cream and a touch of green melon. There is also creamy lemon on the tongue along with slightly tart green plum, slightly under ripe peach and just a touch of white pepper on the back end. There is crisp acidity and a me... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    An excellent light and gently fruity white wine. Not too dry and pairs well with just sitting in a summer breeze and relaxing your cares away. I love this wine very chilled on hot summer evenings. It is remarkable and easily one of my very favorite wines. Well done Andre Lurton! Read More

  • Apsara Sauvignon Blanc Rivers Reach 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty clear yellow color. Lots of fresh fruit aromas, but its hard to pin anything down. On the tongue, it is nice to get just a hint of grapefruit instead of that full-on, in-your-face blast that so many SBs seem to have these days. Also, some melon flavor. Some grassiness. Very restrained on the acidspeaks to the control of the grap... Read More
