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.

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!

🍇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?

🧜‍♀️ 5pm post work pre #internationalsauvignonblancday day drinkie & yet another aged Sauv Blanc🍷⁣

This 2013 ‘Pride & Glory’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from marisco_wines has held its own very nicely. Lovely citrus & acid with really savoury flavours that I find really appealing ❤️⁣

If you’ve got this one, I wouldn’t recommend keeping it a lot longer, I think she might have reached her straps in 2020💚 Although with wine you just never know, they surprise you all the time, that’s one of the reasons I love it so darn much! 🥰⁣

What will you be drinking tomorrow on #SauvBlancDay? Let me know below⬇️

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.

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

Machine-picked Sauvignon Blanc just arriving at the winery.
Most Sauvignon is machine-picked these days. It’s not simply a way of saving money - it can also have benefits.
The first is timing: it’s possible to pick a vineyard quickly, when it is ready to go - or, in warmer regions, at night when it is cooler. Harvesting and pressing cool fruit gives much better quality.
The second is that wines made from machine-picked Sauvignon have substantially higher levels of the polyfunctional thiols that give that distinctive grapefruit/passionfruit character that adds aromatic interest than hand picked fruit.
It may not be very romantic, but machine harvesters are now pretty sophisticated. I rode on one once! It was a cool experience.

💫🥂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.”

🎉🍾 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 🥗🥂⁣

🍾 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘚𝘢𝘶𝘷𝘪𝘨𝘯𝘰𝘯 𝘉𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘤 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘱 𝘵𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺? ⁣

✨Happy Friday and #SauvignonBlancDay!
.
International and National Wine Holidays that are scattered throughout the calendar year are a fun way to celebrate specific varietals and styles of wines, not to mention a perfect opportunity to try something new. Today is a celebration of Sauvignon Blanc, a day that on the 1st Friday of May each year puts one of the most widely planted and versatile grape varieties in the spotlight.
.
#SauvBlancDay is also a great time to explore this expressive grape from different wine regions around the world. There are so many styles available and it is a wonderful varietal to learn more about, including it's ability to clearly capture and showcase the local terroirs where it is grown.
.
In Washington state, Sauvignon Blanc is part of the White Wine Revolution that has been taking place over the last couple of years. Always a crowd pleaser and a fantastic choice to pair with food, #SauvBlanc is beginning to catch up with Chardonnay as the white wine consumers here gravitate towards. The yearly new Spring Releases of WA Sauvignon Blanc is always an exciting time and one of my favorites comes from pepperbridgewinery . I absolutely love the wines across the board from Pepper Bridge, yet there is just something special about this one that keeps me coming back for more.
.
Sourced from three vineyards in the #WallaWallaValley , this 2020 vintage is a blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc and 13% Semillon. Spicy tropical fruit notes combine with lovely petals of citrus blossoms on the nose to deliver a wonderfully intoxicating aroma. On the palate bright notes of pineapple, pear and lemon join in perfect harmony and enhance this wines incredible balance and creamy texture. This #SauvignonBlanc is a real stunner and ideal for the warm summer days ahead! #sample
.
What will you be opening today to celebrate #SauvignonBlancDay ? Cheers everyone 🥂and Happy Friday 🙌

Closing the day properly. In case you haven’t noticed (in stories😄), today we’re celebrating International Sauvignon Blanc Day 😅🤩🥰
🥂I must say I am a fan and I love new discoveries such as this pale straw colour wine, with fresh aromas of citrus and elderflower.
🍇Fortunately, you don’t have to travel to Moldova to get it. It’s on their website 😉
🍛Sharing the delicious pairing tomorrow morning.

Happy International Sauvignon Blanc Day! I’m drinking two - I couldn’t decide and I’m greedy. They are actually both from New Zealand and both from Marlborough - one is from the Awatere Valley and one is from the Waihopai Valley. Very different! I love detecting differences within the same region. Anyway, there’s more information on these wines in the link in my bio 👉 skinandpulp and you can also see me slurping them in my story. littlebeautywines yealands #sauvblancday

Cheers to Sauvignon Blanc!
.
Today marks #sauvblancday and what would Marlborough be without this popular variety, which is responsible for some of the worlds most distinctive aromatic dry white wines.
.
Not known for the typical savvy, Hans created a Sauvignon which is known for its complexity and balance which demonstrates its heritage: organic, single vineyard, handpicked and from the lowest yield. Resulting in a structured, seamless and perfectly integrated wine which has been nurtured and matured for 18 months on the fine lees. Giving it a wonderfully silky smooth complex finish.
