Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular wines in France and around the world, but it's especially known for being grown near Sancerre or Pouilly Fume. It can be found internationally with significant production outside France-including Marlborough New Zealand where they call their version "Sauvy." Sauvignon Blanc is a "New World" wine, meaning that it originated outside of Europe.
Sauvignon Blanc is known for its crisp, dry taste and its high acidity. The grape itself is small and green, with a thin skin. Sauvignon Blanc wines are typically light-bodied with flavours of citrus, green apple, and white peach. They often have a mineral quality as well.
While Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed on its own, it's also a versatile food wine. It pairs well with light appetizers, salads, seafood, and poultry dishes.
If you're looking for a refreshing summertime wine, Sauvignon Blanc is a great choice. It's perfect for sipping on the patio or enjoying with a light meal. And, since it's widely available, you're sure to find a Sauvignon Blanc that fits your taste and budget.
