Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $16.99 per bottle

Description: This is a wine that goes extremely well with spicy foods and is a favorite among people who like to have a little bit more body and heft to a Sauvignon Blanc. We have customers try this wine with a Jerk Habañero jam, cream cheese and crackers to demonstrate how well it goes with spicy foods. This is the only wine that I know of that goes fabulously with the basic nacho, tostado, cheese and jalapeño.

Varietal Definition
Sauvignon Blanc:
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’. When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the wine world’s darlings. Steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character characterize dry wines made from this grape.
