International Sauvignon Blanc Day is

May 6, 2022

#SauvBlancDay

Sauvignon Blanc deserves its own day to be celebrated. This racy grape has achieved world-wide popularity, propelling Sauvignon Blanc to top-tier white wine status alongside Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

While the grape is grown all over the world, not all regions and sites are created equal.

As one of the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, sauvignon blanc can offer a wide range of styles and flavors.  Certain appellations have emerged as prime spots for growing sauvignon blanc — each with its own distinctive expression.

Sauvignon Blanc
is a Perfect Pairing

Chefs around the globe love the pairing potential of a crisp sauvignon blanc. From the tropical and stone fruit notes in warmer climates, to the bright minerality & citrus in cooler climates, sauvignon blanc gives the world’s culinarians a palette of possibilities.

Happy International Sauvignon Blanc Day! 🙃

What better way to celebrate this Friday, than with a glass of Alto Adige Sauvignon Blanc. 🤗 This very old grape variety was introduced to Alto Adige from France at the end of the nineteenth century.🇫🇷 In the meantime, Sauvignon Blanc has become one of the region's leading varieties. It develops notes of gooseberries, passion fruit, elderberries, and black currants.

🍇New Zealand changed the game with Sauvignon Blanc
.
😉If you asked me to pick up a bottle of Sauv Blanc before my wine journey started I would have totally shown up with a bottle from New Zealand. The grape might have its ancestral home in France but this tiny 2-island country really put Sauvignon Blanc on the map
.
🤓The country first got serious about Sauv Blanc in 1975 but 10 years later is when we really started to see a boom in plantings across the country. An outbreak of phylloxera coupled with a government lead campaign to pull out less common Müller-Thurgau and Chenin Blanc primed Sauvignon Blanc to rise exponentially
.
🍷Wineries like villamariawines and kimcrawfordwine became leaders in spreading the New Zealand wine gospel globally. Both companies were also part of the handful of first wineries to move their portfolios to screw caps!
.
🤓Both wineries came from humble beginnings into household names. With Villa Maria starting in Auckland by George Fistonich in the 60s and Kim Crawford originally as a virtual winery started by Kim and Erica Crawford in 90s
.
🍇Marlborough seemed to capture both estates, the region broke the virtual nature of Crawford and was the second winery location for Villa Maria where both wineries continued to make the quaffable wines that we have all become familiar with
.
✨Tasting the 2020 Marlborough productions from each
🍷The Villa Maria Private Bin has aromas of grapefruit, jalapeno, lemongrass, and a noticeable mineral streak that is marked by the left and green berry notes and a clean finish.
🍷The Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is a regional expression of gooseberry that meets tropical and notes pea pods. It is vivid and expressive that bold and memorable style of Sauv Blanc from NZ
.

Clean, elegant and bursting with flavour, the cool-climate wines of Ontario and New Zealand are both renowned. But how do they complement each other?
.
We’re so excited to find out on May 9th when winemakers from the island nation pour their best alongside vintages from Ontario at the art-filled CRUtoronto, Toronto’s newest destination for wine-focused dining. Executive Chef Jon Williams, whose résumé contains recent stints at several of London’s top Michelin-starred restaurants, will turn his impressive culinary skills to creating an inventive succession of artful plates to pair with the Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Noirs, and other food-friendly wines both regions are so well known for. We know Ontario will hold its own, with the wonderful old and new world style Sauvignon Blancs and lovely Pinot Noirs. From Central Otago to Wine Country Ontario, it’s going to be an incredible evening! 👏🏻
.
Aaaaaaand if that isn’t cool enough, there will be a comparative tasting of bubbles to start this awesome journey across the northern and southern hemisphere! 🇨🇦 🇳🇿 🌎 .
Limited tickets are still available for this awesome event, where you too can taste your way through #VQA Ontario and New Zealand wines and explore the coolest, cool climate viticultural regions right here in Toronto! Check out crutoronto, winecountryont or our bio link for ticket details 😎🥂✨ See you there!

💫🥂Three things to celebrate today… 1. It’s Friday. 2. It’s International Sauvignon Blanc Day #sauvblancday AND… most importantly, 3. IT’S MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND! So on that note, welcome to today’s Wine Babes Club feature…

❝My first and fondest memory of wine was when my beloved Nonna would serve me a little glass to have alongside a serving of her exceptional slow cooked lamb ragù . My love of wine and appreciation for home cooking, influenced by my Italian heritage, was sparked at a young age and has stayed with me ever since.”

❝I've worked at the UK's leading wine specialist retailer for nearly 3 years and I'm currently applying do my WSET Diploma. I'm lucky to have some exceptional English Vineyards on my doorstep, but I really can't wait to travel to more iconic wine regions next year.”

❝Fun fact? My surname is the Latin word for 'Love’.”

❝Favourite wine? I'm a Chardonnay girl so I'll gravitate towards a white from the Maconnais.”

🎉🍾 It’s 𝐒𝐚𝐮𝐯𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐧 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐜 𝐃𝐚𝐲 and the first Friday of May - which means we all have an 𝘦𝘹𝘤𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘦𝘹𝘤𝘶𝘴𝘦 to open up a bottle of delicious Sauv Blanc as we slowly inch towards summer ☀️ ⁣
⁣
I’ve already had a couple 2020 vintages from the Southern Hemisphere this year, but this is my first 2020 from New Zealand 🇳🇿 I thought it was only fitting to enjoy this tonight seeing as how instrumental the country has been in making Sauvignon Blanc as popular as it is, worldwide. ⁣
⁣
🥂 Eradus Sauvignon Blanc comes to us from Awatere Valley in Marlborough ⛰The vines benefit from a large diurnal range (𝘵𝘦𝘮𝘱 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘵𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘥𝘢𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵) which allows the grapes 🍇 to ripen and gain those fruity aromas we love, while also still maintaining its acidity. 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢 𝘚𝘢𝘶𝘷 𝘉𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘤 🤗⁣
⁣
On the nose you get lots of 🌸 floral notes, along with tropical and stone fruits like pineapple and peaches, and then there’s also a hint of lemon zest🍍🍑🍋 ⁣
⁣
On the palate, you can actually taste the fact that these vines were grown in free draining river stone terroir 🏞 that crisp minerality is so apparent! ⁣
⁣
I’m looking forward to finishing up this bottle tonight alongside a fresh salad topped with grilled tofu 🥗🥂⁣

Happy international Sauvignon Blanc Day! #sauvblancday

今日はソーヴィニヨンブランの日🎉

ご存知ニュージーランドでの生産量ナンバーワン品種・7割以上です

輸出に至っては8割以上、9割に近い数字
・
産地といえばMarlborough が有名で実際生産量ダントツですが、他のほとんどの地域でも栽培されています
・
わたしもワインはソーヴィニヨンブランから入りました。最初から好きだったかなと振り返ると、いや、青いな-と思いながら飲んでいたことを思い出しました😂
いつの間にか大好きになりましたが😊
最近はあのような青さを感じるSBに出会うことも滅多になくなりました
・
今日は、ニュージーランドワインを世界に知らしめてくれたこの品種に感謝しつついただきます🤗

I had the pleasure of enjoying these two Sauvignon Blanc's over the past quarantine period.

The first one is a classically styled Sauvignon Blanc with lemony colour. I got intense tropical fruit on the nose. Crisp flavours in the mouth and long fruity finish. •
The Winter ferment Sauvignon Blanc is a new world style wine.
After harvest, the juice for this wine was frozen for five months. It was then thawed and fermented in the heart of the Cape winter, producing a uniquely tropical style of Sauvignon Blanc totally unique for South Africa.
The wine has intense aromas of gooseberries, tropical fruit and sweet-grapefruit. The end result offers a rich mouth-filling texture.
Definitely worth a try!

Why not celebrate early?! Tomorrow’s International Sauvignon Blanc day! What makes Boeger Sauv Blanc unique? A touch of Flora is added. It’s a hybrid of Gewurztraminer and Sémillon developed at UC Davis. Greg Boeger was able to get his hands on some Flora in the early 80s. Adds a floral character to the wine and bit of spice. Delicious! #sauvblancday #hammocktime ...

Happy International Sauvignon Blanc Day!

Friday 1 May marks the 11th annual International Sauvignon Blanc Day.
During the holiday, various activities are celebrated across cities in New Zealand but also all over the world.

Who else is drinking Sauvignon Blanc?

My friends at my local supermarket are sourcing wines and they requested me blind taste this Sauvignon Blanc.
What a pleasant surprise! This QPR SB is killing it!

Pale lemon color 👁 .

Very aromatic nose 👃 aromas of fresh lime 🍋, grapefruit, gooseberry, blossoms and bell pepper.
Develops to passion fruit, mangoes 🥭 and pineapples🍍. Hints of sage, ginger and lemongrass.

Bone dry and fresh, built on razor cut high acidity that cleanses the palate👄 .
Medium alcohol and beautiful medium body with some roundness to it.
Very nervous and electric with dense citrus bomb notes leading to slate, wet stone and salinity in the background.

Medium + finish with citrus and salty notes.

Happy Labour day and have a lovely weekend 🍷
