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 »

  • Enkidu Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Very much and herbal/grassy nose. Interesting combination of herbalness and stone fruit is my initial tongue sensation. Then, there is a lemon pith sensation. The lemon sensation seems to linger a bit giving good refreshment. After a few minutes of air, stone fruit sensations seem more emergent. Read More

California, gets a pass, although they could secede from the Union and would then have to compete with a better value product at the low end of the price scale. Read More

  • Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 6/2017. I found this bottle in the wine rack and it was 1/3 gone. Did I put it in there that way? It has a screw top so I wasn't sure, it opened a little to easily so I must have had a glass or two and put it back. No leakage around the wine rack. Bizarre. Anyway, we finished in South Haven on the beach, and like most NZ wines the value ... Read More
