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.

  • Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 2007

Palate: Citrus again, plus some melon and a bit of mango or starfruit. Quick, clean finish that lets you taste the soil minerals. Interestingly, the wine tastes a bit restrained until it's paired...

  • Granbazán Albariño Ambar 2005


    Delicious and full of fruit flavor, I believe I had the '06 vintage. Ordered it at a terrific spanish seafood restaurant on Staten Island. However my distaste for seafood had prevented me from the obviously delicious pairing, it went quite well with my pork chops. Read More

  • Frizky Zebras 2006


    While not as complex and interesting as some of my favorite traditionally bottled varieties, the proper amount of acidity capped off a delicious blend of grapefruit and oranges. Surprisingly refreshing, this South African wine from Leopard Frog Vineyards confirms for me at least that Tetra Paks are not something to necessarily refuse - even if I... Read More

  • Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2005


    Nice, my first albarino. Distinctly different than other whites I drink, notable Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin blank. I get some lush fruitiness and a little spice. Long lasting finish, looking forward to searving to guests with some spicy camarones! Read More
