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’.

  • Margerum Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc 2012


    Very pale yellow color. Something of a fresh, tart nosea bit of cut grass, and a hint of melon. Green apple fruit on entry to the palate. This is accentuated by acid tartness towards the back of the tongue and palate. Very refreshing wine. Great for a summer evening on the patio. Read More

  • Grilling Mahi Mahi, tonight, and I really like Sauvignon Blanc with seafood.  Found this one: Lots of tropical fruit and honey on the front of this one, but acid backup saves it.  It looks like I'm going to have to scrounge around to see what we may have to make a fruit salsa for the Mahi Mahi.Finding this wine, made me wonder if there was an im...
