Sauvignon blanc white wine - crisp, fresh, green
As the Sauvignon blanc grape variety can be found on almost every continent, in every hemisphere and in every vineyard, an enormous variety of flavors of French white wine has developed. All combine the typical accents of the grape, which are expressed in freshly mown grass, herbs and green fruits. Two styles have developed noticeably in different directions. The winemakers from the Loire Valley produce fresh and direct white wines that ferment chilled in steel tanks. New Zealand, South Africa and Chile have taken this style to a new level with exotic nuances. This style is contrasted with the white wines from the Bordelais, which are often matured in wood as a cuvée together with the Sémillon grape. As a result, the Sauvignon blanc white wine reveals complex and spicy notes that cause a sensation under the status of Grand Cru. This style is also very popular in California, where the name Fumé blanc had a strong influence on the rise of the grape in the USA.
The fresh, crisp and aromatic body of Sauvignon blanc, reveals aromas of redcurrant, asparagus, peach, melon, fig, fennel and, in barrique, apple and pear and sometimes green bell pepper.
Noble rot can develop on the grape, enabling the winegrower to vinify sweet wine. Sauvignon blanc offers plenty of scope and can be vinified dry, semi-dry, sweet, noble sweet and brut.
New world, new ideas - the origin and journey of Sauvignon blanc
Sauvignon blanc, how could it be otherwise with such a melodious name, comes from the Loire Valley, near the two small towns of Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire, where the best Sauvignon blanc white wines still come from today. Sauvignon blanc enjoys the highest recognition in France and is considered a cépages noble, the highest distinction as the noblest grape variety. It is an accidental and natural cross between Traminer and Chenin blanc. The grapes are quite frugal and prefer warm regions, but also feel comfortable enough in colder areas to ripen extensively on fertile and medium-heavy soil. This is one of the reasons why Sauvignon Blanc wine has now spread all over the world. In countless regions and corners of the world, the vines with the golden yellow grapes are cultivated on vineyards that are not too steep. The wines from New Zealand are particularly noteworthy. With their very own fruity and exotic style, the Kiwis have conquered the wine world with their creations and even surpassed the wines from the Loire Valley. Other notable areas of cultivation can be found in Australia, Chile, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Argentina, Spain, South Africa, Romania, the USA and even Germany. As we said - worldwide.
