Sauvignon Blanc has a fruity profile as is common among white wines. Its fruity flavors can include lime, green apple, passion fruit, kiwi, guava, white peach and nectarine. It also has a unique herbaceous flavor and aroma that give it greener, more vegetable tones. Look out for bell pepper, jalapeño, grass, basil, celery and lemongrass in this dry, medium acidity wine. Sauvignon Blanc is typically enjoyed young and fresh, but oaked flavors can expand the profile to include vanilla, butter, coconut, nutmeg and dill.
As with Riesling, the flavors and styles of Sauvignon Blanc vary depending on the growing region. It is one of the most widely planted grapes, which means greater variety in the profiles especially when it comes to warmer versus cooler growing climates. Wine Chateau carries selections from the U.S., South Africa, New Zealand, Chile, Australia and beyond. Buy Sauvignon Blanc online by the case or by the bottle to note the differences in flavors and aromas.
Make it easier to get your full serving of vegetables by chasing them down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine goes well with other greens and white meats, especially seafood. Pair this white with nearly any fish, including haddock, cod, sea bass, tilapia and others. Add flavor to your dish with well-chosen herbs like basil, mint, thyme, dill, rosemary and chive. The versatility of Sauvignon Blanc means you can just as easily pair it with tacos and salsa verde as you can with thyme salmon.
