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 »

  • Sileni Estates Sauvignon Blanc Cellar Selection North Island 2014


    2nd time around and still liking it a bunch. One notable change - the grapefruit, though prominent, has lessened some and it allowed the other lemongrass and citrus notes to shine a little brighter. The honeysuckle and orchard florals are very good. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • Chateau de Thauvenay Sancerre 2014


    Something of a stony/minerally nose. Very light-bodied. Very crisp and tartof lemon and, maybe, peach. Some grassiness and some stoniness. If you are OK with the tartness, it is a good summer sipping wine, and, certainly, inexpensive. Read More

  • Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc California 2013


    Not the body of previous vintages, though the aromatics are still very good. Lemongrass, apple, a touch of stone fruit and citrus. The juice nips at the throat and finishes with an acidic, juicy and mouthwatering finish. Drink last year. Paul 87 points Read More

  • Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast 2015


    Floral nose of wild flowers with some intriguing herbals coming through like tea leaf and grass with some peach and pineapple fruit. This is more about the mouthfeel than the acidity in the mouth, with some good fullness in the mouth and distant notes of grapefruit and gooseberry especially towards the finish. Read More

  • Sidewood Mappinga Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills 2013


    Mellow green apple, pear and lemon aromas with light vanilla notes. This is tart and zesty on the attack, delivering loads of fresh citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit before it really starts to show some developing oak towards the finish with hints of cream and vanilla added. Read More

  • Tom Gore Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2015


    Spicy hot and tropical on the nose with pineapple and mango notes with citrus flair coming in as well and a green note. This is juicy and fresh in the mouth, quite refreshing and full of bright acidity and again, that green note coming through the midpalate and delivering herbal notes of green pepper. Towards the finish this turns quite tart and... Read More
