Sauvignon Blanc

Dutcher Crossing

Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Supes interesting for a Cali Savvy B ok I’ll stop abbr.-ing things. My first thought on this was whew orange blossom and clover in the lawn! Then I sipped and was pissed because it has been hanging out with new French oak and I normally require my wines to have me sign a permission slip if they are gonna do that. But within a few minutes of the wine making friends with air I accepted this wine’s friendship with oak and saw that it added a certain solidness to this. Notes of (again) orange blossom infused vanilla bean creme brûlée and marzipan get in there. This is white wine for winter. Also I respect that Dutcher didn’t call this “Fume Blanc” even with it’s new oak. It doesn’t need branding bull. My rating is based not on personal preference because I’m an oak-not-loving snob. But you better bet this wine is balanced, complex and stays with you so it gets a high quality rating. — 9 days ago

@TheSkip is there some blue wine ad with a giant glass I need to see or something? Curious where the thought came from:)

Hillersden

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Herbaceous and farmy with sulfuric undertones on the nose. An interesting sauv to come out of Marlborough, in light of the late grassiness in the nose characteristics that evolves into green bell pepper. Lime hits the palate back in the upper throat. Strikingly clean crisp tart yet creamy foamy oceanic wave of lime. Saltiness akin to margaritas yet I'm suddenly craving yellowtail sashimi after a day of surfing, even though I don't surf! Lengthy and intense, this is a foody's sushi wine on a beach day! — 4 days ago

Sileni

White's Bay Black Label Sauvignon Blanc

Grapefruit, lemon, very citrus nose. Unidimensional but intense and precise: wow! The palate is pretty sauvignon classic with a sheer acidity and a lemony layer on the sides, soft grip and a long fresh finish. It doesn't taste like a Loire sauvignon but I like its straight forward simplicity. Very good — 5 days ago

Pessac-Léognan Sauvignon Blanc 2015

At £18 I have to say this is a great white Bordeaux buy 👍 available @waitrose in 🇬🇧 & good recommendation from @sypped - if you like a mineral loaded Sauv Blanc more dry & less sweet this is for you 😉

MM Louw Sauvignon Blanc 2017

17/20 (92/100) Совиньон блан, выдержанный в дубе. Очень ванильный аромат, тем не менее, сорт сохраняет свой характер: есть ноты белого перца, яблока и лимонов. Высокая кислотность, хорошо интегрирована. Вкус насыщенный. Отличное вино! #capewine2018 — 3 days ago

Section 94 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Opened the night with a classic NZ Sauv Blanc. Crazy petrol nose but it drinks with bright acidity, pear and green apple. Paired this with a citrusy ceviche and the results were perfect. — 5 days ago
