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.

Sauvignon Blanc on Snooth

  • Adobe White 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, which is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc from Paso Robles. This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend. It's currently being cl... Read More

  • Getting back to wine for a moment, last night we hosted a wine dinner with our neighbors Debbie and Rick.  They brought over two bottles, a Napa Merlot (2014 Arietta Merlot Hudson Vineyards) and an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (2015 Twomey Pinot Noir).  We started with that Trump Blanc de Blanc that was given to us last month (I didn't like it muc...

Macari 2015 Lifeforce Sauvignon Blanc ($28):Like many Sauvignon Blanc’s that excite my palate, Lifeforce was fermented in a Concrete Egg. Peach and lemon ice aromas leap from the nose.

    Crisp and dry, but still fruity. Definitely benefits from the chenin blanc grapes. Served chilled, it makes a good spring wine. Read More

    Wine review by ChaseConnor


  • In Virginia, the Viognier varietal is pretty popular.  I'm not a ... fan though.  I prefer Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.  That being said, this one is decent.  Back in 2014, we were down in southern Virginia tasting a few wines at Veritas and other wineries.  The Viognier at Veritas was decent too.Come to think of it, we enjoyed a few Viognie...

  • One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

  • Oxford Landing SB (Marlborough NZ) was my introduction to this grape. Oxford Landing is a reasonable price for a surprisingly low % and an acceptable intro to this grape. However.... My real introduction was with Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough. Revelation; nice sharp taste (not too sharp), reliable 'vintage' (I'm a newbie so I don't c...

  • After tasting the following Sauvignon Blanc varietals from the Marlborough regions of New Zealand "Brancott and Matua", I won't even buy any Sauvignon Blanc varietals from any where else in the world.

  • My love fo Sauv. Blanc is a relatively new one. I discovered the wonders of this strain while representing New Zealand's Villa Maria winery at Israel's largest wine exhibit - "Sommelier", which took place in November '10. I tried both the Blancs from the Private Bin and the Cellar Selection series. The aromas sent me dreaming. I had visions of t...
