Torre Rosazza Sauvignon & Friulano 2008 - IntoWineTV Episode 120
2021 Honig Sauvignon Blanc Reserve, USA, California, Napa, Rutherford, Wine Review
Hay/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has lots of gun powder/sulfur with some pineapple and baking spice. Medium bodied. Nice texture. On the palate, peach and lemon cream with nice acidity. Nice finish. This is a bigger, rounder Sauvignon Blanc which has a lot of oak showing at this young stage. It drinks well on its own and will work with some foods. Pasta Primavera might be one. The fruit will likely fade before the oak integrates, so drink up in the next few years.
2020 François Chidaine Touraine Clos de la Grange, France, Loire, Wine Review
Chidaine is one of our favorite producers of win es in the Loire Valley. Compared to most Sancerre's or Pouilly Fume's, this is a tremendous value if you like Lorie Sauvignon Blanc (the ancestral home of the grape). Not sure, well for the price, it sure seems worth checking out. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has minerality, hay, peach and slight grapefruit. Light bodied. Good balance. On the palate, minerality with grapefruit.
Chalk Hill 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, Windy Ridge
For over 50 years Chalk Hill Winery has been at the forefront of Sonoma wines. Their Windy Ridge Sauvignon Blanc is a testament to the Chalk Hill AVA. Harvested from a single block and using clone 378, this offers soft passion fruit, lemon-lime citrus, light resin, honeydew melon, apricot and quince. It also offers a solid minerality throughout the wine. Shying away from the more grassy iterations, this feels like an “adult” Sauvignon Blanc, more restrained and complementary to a diversity of foods.
2022 North Coast Wine Club Old World Blend, USA, American White Wine, Wine Review
This is made with purchased grapes in northeast Ohio. It is their version off a white Bordeaux and features a 75/25 mix of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with white peach, slight wax, a hint of orange peel and spice. Lovely texture with just a wisp of tannins. Good balance. On the palate, peach and slight almond notes. Good finish. This is a solid version of a "white Bordeaux". Is is drinking well now, but should drink well for five to eight years. Nice on its own, this is very food friendly and worked well with an Eggplant
Alma de Cattleya 2022 Sauvignon Blanc
Harvested from five different vineyard sources, winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez Rave says her goal is to define “the specificity of a dry, beautifully intense wine, yet with volume and texture.” And this she does quite well. Her 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is a little softer than past vintages but nonetheless offers bright, expressive fruit – lemongrass, lime zest, guava, apricot Asian pair, and Green Apple. The acidity is fairly mild, and this proves to be a very drinkable wine with enough to use it for different types of food. 3,400 cases. ORIGIN: Sonoma County. ALCOHOL: 13.7%.
2021 Bedrock Wine Co. Sauvignon Blanc, USA, California, Wine Review
Like most of Beddrock's basic level bottlings this is a tremendous value )in Sauvignon Blanc). Light golden in color with some green hues. The nose is nice with lemon and lime notes, melon, and just a hint of tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Slightly oily texture. Great balance. On the palate, lemon-lime and honey-dew. Good finish. Tasty. This is nice on its own and will work nicely with fish or lighter foods. A nice wine for Sushi. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
La Crema 2022 Sauvignon Blanc
You may not know it, but La Crema has been producing wine for over 40 years. This 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is part of that proud heritage. This offers light lemon-lime, quince, honeysuckle, resin, apricot and guava notes. It’s a lighter style wine that makes it inherently better with a diversity of food. The acidity is in check due mainly to the use, predominately, of stainless steel, and just 27% went into neutral oak allowing for a flinty, tactile expression. ORIGIN: Sonoma County. ALCHOL: 13.5%
2020 Bedrock Wine Co. Sauvignon Blanc, USA, California, Sonoma, Sonoma valley, Wine Review
Bedrock makes a very nice Sauvignon Blanc that is an excellent value. Golden in color with green hues. The nose is great with a slight grassy note along with some melons and a hint of grapefruits. Medium bodied. Lovely slightly oily texture. Good acidity. On the palate, this is delicious. It drinks very easily with a persistent finish. Great on its own, this would be very popular for a summer party. It also works well with lighter foods. It went great with vegetarian (Tofu) Tacos. Drink over the next three to five years.
