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.

🍇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

💫🥂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.”

🍷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

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!

🎉🍾 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 Friday and International Sauvignon Blanc Day! I’m so happy the weekend is here. Thought this beauty from Desparada would be a great choice for Sauv B day, coming from Paso Robles. Vailia, owner/winemaker, does a few different styles of Sauv Blanc, aging them in different vessels, such as oak, amphora and concrete. This one was aged in French oak, although no real presence of it showed in the wine, a very lovely Sauv B to drink. Aromas and flavors of lemongrass and pineapple filled the glass and my palate. The wine paired very lovely with the spicy chicken and fried rice. Nice way to start off the weekend! Cheers 🍷-

🇬🇧🇹🇩⬇️Happy Sauvignon Blanc Day!⁣

I have chosen to celebrate with this excellent bottle called Vise ("dreams" in Romanian) from a boutique winery called agapewine Agape Arta & Natura.⁣

This is a wine that honors the Old World and looks towards the New World and the biodynamic way of making wine. ⁣

🍷Very fruit-forward aromas, including peaches, apricots, and a bit of pineapple. ⁣
Dry, fresh, and crisp, with a good acidity. The pellicular maceration for 6 days allowed natural fermentation with wild yeast only. Long aftertaste with a hint of almonds and honey in the end.⁣

🧀An excellent wine to pair with camembert, calamari, and salmon dishes.⁣

🇹🇩Azi e Ziua Sauvignon Blanc!⁣

Am ales să sărbătoresc cu această sticlă excelentă numită Vise de la o cramă boutique numită Agape Arta & Natura- zona Silagiu.⁣

Acesta este un vin care onorează Lumea Veche și privește spre Lumea Nouă și aduce in prim-pan modul biodinamic de a face vinuri.⁣

Arome foarte fructate cu piersici, caise și un pic de ananas.⁣
Sec, proaspăt și racoritor, cu o aciditate bună. Maceratia peliculară timp de 6 zile a permis fermentarea naturală, doar cu drojdie sălbatică. Postgust lung cu o notă de migdale și miere la final.⁣

Un vin excelent de asociat cuvcamembert, calamari și somon.⁣

Hunter's Home Block Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Marlborough
Bright, clear pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is vibrant and pure, softly full with nuances of classic Marlborough gooseberries, lime, green apple melded with subtle crunchy mineral, elderflower and a hint of cassis. Medium-light bodied, a crisp palate carrying flavours of gooseberries, lime and green apple, adorned by a hint of elderflower and cassis, along with salinity, and a mineral flow with good energy and focus to a long, crisp finish. The flavours are pure with depth, racy acidity tamed by subtle lees contact softened texture and fine phenolics, left a salivating, dry closing. This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with finesse and a salivating, crisp mineral drive. Match with Marlborough's Cloudy Bay clams and green-lipped mussels over the next 6+ years. Fruit sourced from Home Block Vineyard on Rapaura Road, zero herbicides used, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in tank (90%) and large French oak puncheons (10%) to 13% alc, 1 g/l RS, aged on fine lees. 19/20 pts (95 pts) May 2021 RRP $29.90

It’s Pizza Friday along with International Sauvignon Blanc Day. Celebrating with a classic pie from pizzamyheart and a 2019 seiquerce sauvignon blanc from
Ranch House Vineyard in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County. Sei Querce is led by winemaker nowell_smithwines in Geyserville. Kate shares the Sei Querce vision of developing a program of small lot, minimal intervention, and highly sustainable wines, pushing toward a carbon-neutral vineyard footprint. The wine she produces is world-class and encompasses European sensibility and elegance in the New World. This one has a nose of kiwi, hibiscus and grassy salt air with tastes of Meyer lemon, mango and grapefruit. Check this producer out as they are super small production. Have a great weekend eveyone.
