Sauvignon Blanc

Peter Michael Winery

L'Apres-Midi Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Nose on this wine is intoxicating. Dried herbs, honeysuckle, crushed limestone. Entry is quite rounded here. Lime and tangerine rind notes here to the front and middle start to infiltrate. Goes to a full throttled middle. Very pleasant, acidity is quite strong, stiff oak. Has a lot of SB character with the weight of a chardonnay. Finishes strong with good acidity. Great depth and structure. This wine can go 5 years without question with proper cellaring. — a day ago

Duck Hunter

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

This is NZ SauvBlanc with the edge taken off of it. The grassy nose is only slight, showing more herbs than cat pee. The sip is remarkably restrained as well, with trademark citrus sharing the stage with melon, cucumber and peach. The wine is not very tart, by SB standards, but it’s not sweet, either. It’s a Sauvignon Blanc for people who normally shy away from it.

@Plate & Bottle Dinner.

Second course, Corn Pudding, Truffle Butter. So unique and executed masterfully by Chef Hedy. Corn is prepared with a leek thyme cream and few cherry tomato to garnish.

The Hourglass SB is so good on its own but, together they are a near perfect ten.

Stunning example of SB. There are many examples of mediocre to bad SB. This is absolutely not one of them. It’s everything a good SB can be! From 375ml.

Allan Scott

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tonight's wine I have opened another Sauvignon Blanc, the 2018 Allan Scott Family Winemakers Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.

The nose shows expressions of peach, tangerine, grapefruit, guava, lemongrass and minerality.

On the palate the nose is confirmed with grapefruit, tangerine, white peach, orange peel, peach skin and nice mineral notes.

The wine is medium bodied with high acidity that leads to a long clean crisp fruit finish. These New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs really have a lot to offer and I will be drinking more in the coming months. I will also try more Loire Valley, Bordeaux and Alsace Sauvignon Blanc's to try and round out my experiences. We can look forward to the weekend full of family and friendship. Have a plan and be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Whitehaven

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Yesterday late afternoon with my wife while visiting my son and his wife in Arkansas we had the pleasure of opening the 2017 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.

On the nose there was beautiful aromatics of grapefruit, guava, lime, grass, orange peel, white flowers and minerality.

On the palate the nose was confirmed with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, orange peel, herbaceous notes and minerality.

The wine is well balanced, medium bodied with high acidity and a nice effervescence quality that leads right into a long fresh, clean crisp finish. A very nice expression of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was enjoyed by all and everyone expressed their full enjoyment. Have a great week this week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

@Adam Beasley we had wonderful time there. We were right there in Springdale. Too bad we didn't stay longer. We spent time at Sassafras Vineyard and Winery. Spent sometime in Bentonville and went over to the Cherokee Casino. Would have loved to share a glass with you. Maybe next time we come to town.

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Akmèniné Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Second time having this producer/bottle but this was much older than the previous 2014 vintage I had. Drinking young with great energy and acidity. Great dry finish, though some notes of orange peel linger. Pairs well with different foods! LOVE! — 19 days ago

One of the Delectable peeps suggested I try this it was somebody’s who’s opinion I respect, cos I immediately went and scooped some up - and the verdict is that it’s excellent!
Very fruit-forward with white flowers and exotic fruits on the nose. The palate is lively and energetic. Tight acidity with good minerality. The fruits carry through and sail on. Very attractive SB.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Pessac-Léognan Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2014

This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc from Pessac-Léognan. Crisp and refreshing with nice weight and complexity.


Nose is gentle and elegant. The palate is crisp, dry and rich.

Showing citrus, lemons, spices, light wood, green apples, grapefruits and minerals.

Nice length on the finish with limes and minerals.

A Good quality wine. Definitely my favorite white Bordeaux so far.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to evolve in the next 5 years.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and show more complexity.

Robert Parker 93 points. 94 points Wine Spectator.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Gris.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$95.
