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.

  • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Mariano's, 8/2016, Mary bought and Mary loved it. More than she, (not me) usually spends on white wine. Good to know she favors it, as this label is readily available almost everywhere. So, when I am aware enough (rarely, I admit), to bring home a treat for her I have this easy option. Read More

  • Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very, very good - though it would be better fresher this still has plenty to offer. Grapefruit, melon, wet stone and popping acidity give this a wonderful mouth watering finish. Read More

  • Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Los Vascos Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Aromatic and herbal with green peas, jalapeño and green bell pepper, lemon and golden berries. Quite unique. In the mouth it's more classic with grassy notes of lemon and lime, more green pepper and a tart acidic finish. Read More
