Sauvignon Blanc produces the extraordinary French white wines of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé but has also become incredibly popular and successful in New Zealand, California and Chile. The vine itself needs careful pruning to tame the vigorous growth of vegetation which can produce excessive herbaceousness in the wine. Although wonderful with food, Sauvignon Blanc is also great on its own.
Our 2015 Blackstone Winemaker’s Select Sauvignon Blanc is full of lemon and lime aromas and flavors with freshly cut grass and floral notes in the nose. The flavors follow suit accompanied by a nice, acidic backbone, the wine’s acidity and citrus tones making it a very food friendly wine. Try pairing it with grilled fish, seafood, pasta, or crab.
