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.

Tasting notes:

Citrusy and intense Sauvignon Blanc produced at the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand by the Allan Scott family.

Fresh, zesty, juicy and full of tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit. the natural acidity of sauvignon blanc produces a refreshing finish that will leave you wanting to pour yourself another glass. A true category benchmark.

Wir stoßen nachträglich nochmal an auf den Internationalen Tag des Sauvignon Blanc – ein perfekter Start ins Wochenende. 😃

Wir lieben Sauvignon Blanc für seinen unverwechselbaren und vielseitigen Charakter: Einerseits rassig und grün, andererseits exotisch-fruchtig. 👏

Zum ersten Typ gehört definitiv einer der besten und wohl bekanntesten Sauvignon Blancs Deutschlands:

Mit dem Kaitui hat Markus Schneider der Welt gezeigt, dass Sauvignon Blanc aus der Pfalz schmeckt und eine echte Referenz für diese Rebsorte in Deutschland etabliert. 👍

Você sabia que hoje é o Dia Internacional da Sauvignon Blanc?

Esta é uma casta muito aromática, se você tem dificuldade em encontrar os aromas no vinho, experimente Sauvignon Blanc, seus aromas são muito característicos. Não estranhe ao ouvir que a casta apresenta muitos aromas vegetais: pimentão verde, aspargos ou grama. Essa é uma tipicidade da uva.
.
Entretanto, esses aromas podem variar de acordo com o clima! Em locais de clima mais fresco, como no Vale do Loire, na França, seus aromas serão predominantemente vegetais. Já em lugares de clima mais quente, como no Chile, o perfil aromático muda, predominando as notas de frutas como maracujá e abacaxi.
.
Estudos indicam que essa uva é originária do Vale do Loire. É nessa região que encontramos 2 denominações de origem muito prestigiadas pela produção de Sauvignon Blanc: Sancerre e Pouilly Fumé. A casta também fez sua fama em países como a Austrália e Nova Zelândia.
.
Agora que você conhece mais sobre essa variedade, corre garantir a sua garrafa. Baixe o app da Evino e fique por dentro das promoções <3

In all Sancerre-ity, you should try this 2019 Sancerre Les Boucauds from Domaine Claude Riffault!

This 2019 Sancerre Les Boucauds, made from 22-50 year-old vines is bright with notes of stone fruit and flint. Richer in body but still fresh and mouth-watering. Sauvignon Blanc lovers, add this to your must-try list.

Domaine Claude Riffault has been family-owned and run for five generations. Claude’s son Stéphane, now at the helm, is not only upholding his father legacy but attracting notable attention in the region choosing to incorporate organic and biodynamic practices and making fantastic wines.

Pick it up in store or online via the link in our bio.

🍇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
.
💁🏻‍♀️Do you have a fav New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc?

Mike Bennie from winefront.com.au has recently tasted two of our Sauvignon Blanc's in time for International Sauvignon Blanc Day tomorrow. Enjoy a glass of one of our favourite varieties tomorrow. ⁠

2020 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc ⁠
Flinty, struck match characters, well done, lemon juice, passionfruit, aloe vera – big bouquet. Limey to taste, a little more mellow than the bouquet but sure is puckering and shapely to sip on. Very fine, chalkiness in feel too. Very nice. 93 points.⁠

2014 Dog Point Section 94⁠
Mature release? Looks like it! Flinty whiffs over preserved lemon, ginger, smoky notes. Juicy and fleshy to taste, complex, layered kind of feel, intensity of fruit, power, great texture, nutty-savoury elements, excellent length and persistence. Outstanding white wine here. 94 points.⁠

Hey guys, happy #sauvblancday ! I’ve decided to go with a New Zealand sauvignon blanc 🇳🇿
_____
🍇 This one is produced by nautilusestate in the Marlborough region. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged on its lees for about 4 months.
_____
Expressive nose of grapefruit, honeysuckle, mango and pineapple. Flavors of citrus with a great acidity.
_____
😋 Oysters, clams, mussels, any seafood bring them on. What about some shrimp tempura? 😉
_____
👍 Thanks to elixirsagence for providing this sample.
