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 »

Sauvignon Blanc on Snooth

  • Murphy-Goode the Fumé Sauvignon Blanc North Coast 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A prime example of the fumé style; lots of bright yellow fruits with just a dash of oak. Lemon, honeysuckle and white tea hit the nose with a dash of Zweiback. Light, crisp, and fresh with some roundness around the edges. Tempered acidity. Unripe pineapple, green apple, and more lemon follow. Long zing-zanging citrus-drenched finish. Read More

  • Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly herbed citrus notes of lemon and lime with a rose petal note on the nose. Tart and fresh in the mouth with pink grapefruit and cantaloupe notes and a touch of grassy herb and pineapple on the finish. Nicely complex yet well integrated. Read More

  • William Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A newcomer from Gallo Wines, the William Hill Estates Sauvignon Blanc has a calming light Sea foam green hue. There are instant and startling aromas of citrus fruits and apricot on the nose. Powerfully sharp on the tongue with tastes of ripe red grapefruit, kiwi and cantaloupe. A slight effervescence tingles the tongue with a delightful danc... Read More

  • Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre Vieilles Vignes Sur Silex 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The Sancerre wine district is a small area which surrounds the Loire Valley in ... white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre has the classic sharp Sauvignon Blanc initial aroma but little in the way of fragrance. It is vibrantly peppy and a bit startling on the first sip, by that I mean I expec... Read More
