Sauvignon Blanc

67
Sort by:

Sauvignon Blanc. (Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and the rest of Loire, New Zealand, rest of the world).

Sauvignon Blanc has its distant origin in Southwest France. Together with the Semillon and Muscadelle, it forms the basis for white Bordeaux. Although it is an early-ripening grape variety, harvesting it too early can make it look harsh with aggressive, unripe acidity and an abundance of green pepper and cat piss aromas. The best specimens have a fresh, lively and juicy taste and often have an intense aroma that literally blows out of the glass.

Recognizable aromas : (green fruit (apple, kiwi, gooseberry); citrus (grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange); vegetables (asparagus, bell pepper); plants (grass, boxwood) herbs (mint, sage, parsley) animal (cat piss) In the New World and in warm years in cool regions often also exotic fruits (melon, pineapple, mango, peach).
