Sauvignon Blanc

(aka. Blanc Fume, Fume Blanc, Savagnin Musque)

  • Apsara Sauvignon Blanc Kick Ranch 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with dinner at Savoy last evening. I don't drink Sauvignon Blancs very often, but for this dinner, asked the Waitperson to choose a glass of wine or Bourbon for each of 3 courses. Pleasantly surprised with this one, paired with a Salad Special with Butter Lettuce, Bacon, & Gorgonzola. Very well balanced, smooth, and more body than I exp... Read More
