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. It is rarely oaked, except in California, where it has often been subjected to Read more »

  • Retailers report, and empirical evidence demonstrates, that Valentine's Day can be one of the busiest holidays for the wine and spirits business. Wine menu planning is a fun exercise but sometimes the rigors of workaday reality get in the way of our good time. And when it comes to wine, price doesn’t need to indicate how much you care. Wine is o... Read More

  • I usually grab a Pinot Noir with lamb.  What do you drink with pork? I really think that you can enjoy any red wine with lamb, Al.  I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon.  Somebody else might prefer Temprnillo.  If I came to your house and you offered me a PN to go with a Sandra-prepared rack of lamb, I would gratefully accept it.  However, I know you hav...

  • Mastrojanni Botrys Moscadello di Montalcino 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Candied orange peel and peach notes with the creamy nutty aromas of age showing here on the nose. Thick molasses and orange marmalade flavors on the palate with rose petal floral notes and dried apricot fruit. This is showing its age at this point but still has a lot of flavor. Syrupy sweet and decadent. Read More

  • 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.
