Sauvignon Blanc! The 2022 Guide To The Best Sauvignon Blanc Wines
Crisp, dry and oh so refreshing, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular varieties of white wine. Ranging from citrus to grassy to tropical fruit (grapefruit, pineapple, mango) to mineral aromas and flavors, it's one of our favorite and most refreshing wines to drink in the summer.
A parent of Cabernet Sauvignon (along with Cabernet Franc), the grape is thought to have originated in the Bordeaux region of France. While Bordeaux (Sauternes) and the Loire Valley (Sancerre) still produce excellent examples, winemakers are producing delicious Sauvignon Blanc all over the world.
New Zealand in particular has excelled with this variety but Chile, California, Australia, South Africa and northeastern Italy also produce quite a few tasty examples. Each area has developed their own distinctive traits over the years so it's also great fun to compare and contrast these different regional styles.
The variety is also known as Fume Blanc, Muskat-Silvaner or just Sauvignon in some regions and is often blended with the variety Semillon, particularly in France. Typically made in stainless steel, you can also find excellent examples aged in oak. It makes a great pairing for cheese, fish and other summer fare.
