Sauvignon Blanc is a light to medium bodied, dry white wine varietal. Often described as crisp and refreshing this herbaceous wine is best consumed when young.
Like many other white wine varieties, Sauvignon Blanc flourishes in the cooler climates of southern Australia. Some of our best growing regions include the Adelaide Hills, Yarra Valley, Orange and Margaret River. Sauvignon Blanc is one of the easiest wines to recognise due to its sharp, distinctive and sometimes aggressive smell. Common flavours and aromas include lemongrass, gooseberry, grass, capsicum, lime, melon, grapefruit, vanilla and wood. Sauvignon Blanc has a naturally high level of acidity and is often characterised as tangy, tart, zesty and racy. As one of the most versatile white wine varieties, Sauvignon Blanc can accompany a great range of food types. It can be paired with tomato and garlic based dishes, Italian flavours, Thai food, fragrant salads like Greek, Caesar and Garden, sushi, smoked cheeses and poultry.
