Sauvignon Gris

Sauvignon Gris is a slight mutation of Sauvignon Blanc, creating a different colored berry with a slightly changed flavor profile. This is similar to the difference between Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, with "gris" a French term for grey in English. The flavor profiles of Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Blanc are only minimally different, with more similarities than differences, depending on winemaker influences. It can be a delightful departure from Sauvignon Blanc, with robust elements that can make food pairing quite interesting.

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Cousiño-Macul Isidora Savignon Gris 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A bit muted, this has a bit of petrol and lemon notes on the nose. In the mouth there's more of a showing of fruit, with juicy nectarine and peach flavors taking the lead and mellowing into a citrusy acidity on the finish.87 pts Read More

  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • According to the numbers, wine from the United States is an afterthought in Australia.  A report this past week from Pasco, Wash., NBC-affiliate KNDO/KNDU indicated that Australia is showing a keen interest in changing that trend by bumping up its imports of wine from Washington. Currently, the report said, exports of American wines to Australia... Read More
