Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: This fine, ripe flavored wine has rich aromas of juicy apricot, peach, pineapple and lemon. These tropical fruit flavors have a silky well balanced structure with wonderfully light undertones of vanilla oak spice and a hint of effervescence. This Sauvignon Blanc will pair well with lighter style foods, salads, soups and fish.

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.
