International Sauvignon Blanc Day is

May 6, 2022


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.

💫🥂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…

🎬: Introducing Simone of _goodwinegirl #goodwinegirl

📍Based in Sussex, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇬🇧.
❝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.”

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!

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 ...

🍇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?

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!
🍷 Southern Ocean
🍇 Sauvignon Blanc
📌 Marlborough, New Zealand
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 🍷

Celebrating International Sauvignon Blanc Day with a special bottle of von_winning1849 !
🍇 There are many reasons to love this unique varietal, but to me it's ideal for some culinary explorations. It is so versatile that it can enoble some plain, simple food and will hold up nicely to herbal as well as spicy notes - both the wine and the food it accompanies will be enhanced and made complete!
🥢 This time I paired with some roasted edamame with Chinese five spice and picked radish - DELISH!

🍾 International Sauvignon Blanc Day🍾

Sauvignon Blanc 2020: In der Nase Duftnoten von Johannesbeere, Stachelbeeren
und Litschi, elegant am Gaumen sehr weiche Stilistik, reif und sehr
trinkanimierend, exotischer Fruchtnachhall.

Sauvignon Blanc Herrenkult 2019: Der Duft erinnert an Holunderblüten und
schwarze Johannisbeeren, zarter Stachelbeere-Touch und Brennnessel. Dies
spiegelt sich am Gaumen wider. Ein reifer, eleganter Wein.

🍷Family wineries bottling up a legacy in New Zealand
🤓New World wine regions are always thought of, well, new! BUT family-run multigeneration wineries buck that comment. Today I am diving into 2 family-owned wineries in Marlborough babichwines and saintclairwine
🍇Babich is a winery part of the fabric of New Zealand wine. Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016 the winery has made wines from vineyards in Auckland, Hawke's Bay, and in 1991 making their first Marlborough Sauv Blanc. Spanning 3 generations and counting!
🍷Their 2020 vintage Sauvignon Blanc is part of the Classics Series. The wine is sustainably certified and in the glass, the wine is beautifully perfumed with notes of passionfruit, mandarin orange, tarragon and great florality. On the palate, the wine is mouth-filling with a bright and long finish
🍇Next up is Saint Clair Family Estate. The winery was started and is still owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, who established themselves in Marlborough in the late 70s. Their pioneering spirit really relates to the name of the winery; named after James Sinclair who first settled the property. The winery today is run by their children and the wines are made by a stellar winemaking team. Made up of Hamish Clark, Kyle Thompson and Stewart Maclennan
🍷In the glass, their 2019 Sauv Blanc is very inviting. The wine is filled with aromas of quince, blackcurrant, a mix of ripe citrus notes, and that classic Sauv Blanc herbaceousness.
On the palate, the wine is dry and lean with a razor edge acidity and a balance in the glass.
🥰Loving these tasting notes?
👉You can find both of these wines in LCBOs across the city. Check out Summerhill, Eglington and Laird, and Spadina and Front St. locations
💁🏻‍♀️Next Friday, May 7th is Sauvignon Blanc day, are you ready?

Bottoms’s Friday AND International Sauvignon Blanc Day!🥂
I’m celebrating with theoremvineyards and their Sauvignon Blanc new release. A beautifully crafted aromatic wine! Stone fruit, lime, and honeysuckle grab your attention on the nose with bright acidity, a citrus tartness and notable texture on the palate.💛
Fun fact; two components added to this vintage includes a small amount of Musque clone that helps lift the aromatics and adds floral undertones. Also, a concrete egg was incorporated into the elevage which adds some weight and elegant texture, while also preserving the minerality, which is present both on the nose and palate.
A perfect wine to pair with summer vegetables or could easily stand alone without any food. Your choice.😉#sauvblancday #theorem #sipsip

As Sauvignon Blanc Day winds down in Aotearoa it’s just waking up for our wine family in the Northern Hemisphere.

Tonight we’re in Central Otago (Gibbston Valley to be precise) celebrating with fine local wine.

This Central Otago Gibbston Valley Barrel aged Sauvignon Blanc is pure, fresh, classically cool climate and expressive. Great texture and finish.

Aotearoa produces fine Sauvignon Blanc in many of its regions. Celebrate the best of local.

We are here for the weekend with our pals at Kinross. Looking forward to some great NZ wine experiences.

🎉🍾 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 🥗🥂⁣
