Sauvignon Blanc

Vini Viti Vinci

Sauvignon

Bright ripe with a tang that reaches the way back sides of your tongue.

Smells of greens and yellows - Smokey green herbs and sliced yellow starfruit.

Has a fleshy, creamy texture sitting under sour tropical fruits - tastes like key lime pie and mango sorbet and candied Limoncello.

Tiare

Collio Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This Sauvignon is tinted a very light gold, almost clear. The nose gives aromas more common to New World Sauvignon Blancs - grass, herbs, salinity. The grassiness is not, however, on par with, say, a New Zealand SB. It’s a little more restrained than that. On the palate, citrus minerality is the rule, with an extremely fresh acidity. The lemon-lime flavor comes back on the lengthy finish. Fish is a great pairing for this wine, something along the lines of a tuna salad or nicoise would be ideal.

Titus

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Blend of 95.2% Sauvignon Blanc & 4.8% Viognier, pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone and tropical fruits with citrus and floral notes, nice phenolics. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of melon, pear and apple with grapefruit/lemon citrus wrapped in lively acidity, medium+ length ending with creamy citrus texture. Very Nice! — 8 days ago

Turranio Lison-Pramaggiore Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This pale yellow wine has a fragrant nose with some grassy, herbal notes, although not as grassy as the Tiare. There is a nice floral element and some tropical fruit, too. The palate shows a great Sauvignon Blanc flavor profile - citrus, minerals, herbs - and an acidity which is pleasant enough without getting too crazy. I sometimes find Sauvignon to be a little much on the palate for my taste, but that is not the case with the Turriano. It is a very nice sip and wonderful match for rice or pasta dishes, especially those with an herbal flair to them. BTW, this wine is Friuli DOC. — 6 days ago

Quintessa

Illumination Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Today we visited the peaceful, tranquil vineyard and winery of @quintessawinery where years ago Augustin and Valeria Huneeus, of Chile 🇨🇱, set their sights on one of Rutherford’s gem properties, offering diverse soils, aspects, and four distinct microclimates all on the same property😍 🍇

Valeria, the viticulturist of the family, chose to farm this land organically and biodynamically. Quintessa more recently pursued and obtained formal certification. While the Huneeuses remain intimately involved, albeit to a lesser degree, the excellence of these wines and winemaking practices are carried forward under currrent winemaker Rebekah Wineburg. @postandvine

Here we have a flight that includes two Illumination white blends comprised of Sauvignon Blanc Musque, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semilllon varieties.

These blends are reminiscent of a Bordeaux Blanc from Pessac-Leognan region. These wines were fermented for various periods of time in a combination of concrete, stainless steel, acacia wood, and neutral oak vessels, lending dimension and complexity. These wines also underwent lees stirring, lending richness, weight, and creaminess. Just one year difference between these two wines and the result is noteworthy.

The 2018 is elegant, more restrained, and integrated, where as the 2019 is highly aromatic with florals 🌸 and tropical fruits such as melon, papaya, tart pineapple 🍍 . Both wines are approx 14% ABV and have bright acidity.

The name Illumination came from time spent in the vineyard, watching the sun illuminate the vines. The beautiful work on the label was inspired by the Book of Kells and stained glass, known to glow and shine with the luminescent sun. ☀️

Kofl Alto Adige - Südtirol Sauvignon Blanc 2019

The pale yellow wine gives a hint of oak on the nose, along with citrus and stone fruit. The palate shows lemon, orange peel, apricot and that hint of oak. The grassy notes are kept to a minimum, which is fine with me, and leaves this as one of the tastier Sauvignons I have encountered. — 6 days ago

Domaine du Salvard

Delaille Cheverny Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Always a favorite Loire Valley white! Whoa! This is very reminiscent of a New Zealand SB! That cat box aroma/taste (I know that sounds weird) is standing up very proud! Although not quite the acidic finish from NZ. An excellent selection if you can accept the funk! — 20 hours ago

Altamura

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

2016 - Honeysuckle, luscious bouquet; golden hue; great legs; viscous, lightly acidic, slightly late harvest, touch of citrus, light honey finish; still the best Sau Blanc there is, the one to beat; without a doubt! — 13 hours ago
