Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful wine that is often misunderstood. It's the "chameleon" of white wines, because the same grape variety, grown in different parts of the world, has a totally different taste.

The primary fruit flavors of Sauvignon Blanc are lime, green apple, passion fruit, and white peach. Depending on how ripe the grapes are when the wine is made, the flavor will range from zesty lime to flowery peach. What makes Sauvignon Blanc unique from other white wines are its other herbaceous flavors like bell peppers, jalapeño, gooseberries, and grass. These flavors come from aromatic compounds called pyrazines and are the secret to Sauvignon Blanc’s taste.

  • Sauvignon Blanc with its herbaceous notes pairs well with similar green herbs.
  • If it has parsley, rosemary, basil, cilantro or mint, chances are Sauvignon Blanc will make a great pairing. When slightly chilled, it pairs well with fish, shellfish, nearly any seafood or savory cheese, particularly Chevre.
  • It is also known as one of the few wines that can pair well with sushi.
  • Sauvignon Blanc's crisp acidity is delicious when paired with crunchy summer salads of cherry tomatoes, peppers, and vinaigrette.
