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.

🍇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?

Bottoms up...it’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

7 maj 2021 är #SauvBlancDay 🔥

Här är ett gäng fina exempel av druvan som odlas över hela världen och är lätt att känna igen med ofta inslag av citrus, krusbär, vinbärsblad, nässlor, fläder, gräs och även ibland det kända kattkiss.

Vad äter du helst till din Sauvignon Blanc?

Jag älskar grönärtssoppa som kan toppas med olika tillbehör beroende på vad du har för stil i glaset. Halstrad pilgrimsmussla, rökt pancetta, getost eller färska örter 🌿

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

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.⁠

🍷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?

Celebrating #SauvBlancDay with this little Kiwi number 🇳🇿

Greywacke is the personal project of Marlborough legend Kevin Judd, who made his fame with Cloudy Bay - the brand that put New Zealand sauvignon blanc on the map 🗺

Personally I am not usually as enamoured with sauv blancs from this region as some wine lovers (I’m looking at you laurathumpston), but I couldn’t help but admire the complexity in this fine example (2020 vintage).

🍇 100% sauvignon blanc grown in Southern Valleys & Wairau Plains. A portion of the juice undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast in old oak barrels, the bulk ferments in stainless steel and then is left on lees for several months.
👃🏼 An abundance of fruits, from ripe peach, to passionfruit, mango and delicate elderflower aromas 🍑🥭🌸
👅 High acidity, more peaches, melon, lime zest, green pepper plus mineral and smoky notes 🍈🫑🪨🌫

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.
