Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Product #28774 (In Stock)
Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Riebeek Cellars Sauvignon Blanc 2014

From the windswept hills of South Africa’s Swartland region, here’s a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc for folks who enjoy this refreshing varietal’s snap and zing, but don’t want to get overwhelmed by grapefruit and grass.  Riebeek Cellars was established in 1941, making it an “old” estate for this part of South Africa, and the style here seems a little “Old World” too, marrying nice ripeness with a little restraint and class.

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is certainly a winner, with big aromas and flavors of fresh peach, green melon, just cut apple, and juicy lemon/lime acidity.  We love how its more than mouthwatering and refreshing enough to slake your thirst on a hot afternoon, but also mellow and easygoing enough to delight for glass after glass.  Robert Parker called the last vintage "A real winner" (89 points) and Wine Spectator made the 2012 a "Best Buy."  The 2014 is at least that good, and a screaming value, too.

MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Product #27578 (In Stock)
MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013 MAN Family Wines Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The brothers-in-law who make MAN wines grow most of the Sauvignon Blanc for this wine in high-altitude vineyards of the Agter-Paarl sub-region of South Africa’s Stellenbosch.  Strong winds blow through the vineyards most every day, leading to the name “Warrelwind” (or Whirlwind in English).  And there’s certainly a Warrelwind of aroma and flavor in this delicious South African Sauvignon Blanc!

Big, fruity, aromas of red grapefruit, berry, and green apple jump from the glass with just the right touch of Sauvignon’s signature fresh cut grass for complexity.  The flavors are wildly complex – Ruby Red grapefruit, green apple, honeydew melon, and a touch of something tropical take center stage with savory accents of lime peel and fresh grass.  A touch of Semillon (10%) and regular lees stirring gives this a bit of extra body and rounds off Sauvignon’s rough edges, but the finish is juicy, mouthwatering, and fresh.  A good deal more sophistication and complexity than you’d expect for this fine value price!

“I tasted excellent wines from MAN Family Wines… This winery has some fabulous values and should be high on the shopping lists of frugal consumers. The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc displays a classic varietal character of freshly mowed grass, melon and grapefruit notes in an authoritative, crisp, fresh, light-bodied, naked style. Drink it over the next year.”Wine Advocate 87 points

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Product #28251 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2013

2013 will be difficult for red Bordeaux, but the dry whites (like this one) excelled with that perfect blend of ripe fruit and vigorous, juicy, acids.  The 2013 edition of our best-selling Bordeaux Blanc ever delivers on the promise of the vintage.  It opens with its usual generous scents of white pineapple, honeysuckle, and orange zest.  The 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit delivers more of the same on the palate plus a bit of firm green melon, tangerine, and a bite of citrus pith and oil.  A tad more elegant and fresh than the 2012, it's even more a great all-purpose white for parties, salads, fish, or just sipping on a warm afternoon.

Allan Scott makes this cheerful (and cheap!) Sauvignon Blanc for a local distributor, and it's one of those unexpected winners that punch well above their weight.  Generous and fresh aromas of orange blossom, tangerine, and pink grapefruit lead to a zippy, crisp, mouthful of melon and citrus fruit with just a touch of fresh cut grass.  Fun and very tasty.

Dom De l'Hemoniere Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2013 Product #28467 (In Stock)
Dom De l'Hemoniere Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2013 Dom De l'Hemoniere Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2013

This could just be the perfect year-round Sauvignon Blanc - refreshing enough for summer heat and rich enough for mid-winter seafood.  It's 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the middle Loire valley (not too far from Vouvray), and shows off lovely ripeness in 2013.  Sweet pink grapefruit, green melon, and Granny Smith apple aromas carry through to the generous flavors where a touch of spice and lime zest kick in, too.  Nicely full in the mouth but juicy clean at the end with just a touch of grapefruit zest and cut grass. Pretty darn delicious.

Di Lenardo Sauvignon Blanc Friuli 2013 Product #28627 (In Stock)
Di Lenardo Sauvignon Blanc Friuli 2013 Di Lenardo Sauvignon Blanc Friuli 2013

Massimo Di Lenardo says, “My philosophy is to emphasize the grape’s pure fruitiness and acidity without the masking affects of oak.”  And that’s the key to this extraordinary value Friuli Sauvignon Blanc, a wine that avoids the excessive earthiness and/or obtrusive oak treatments all too common in Italian Sauvignon Blanc. 

This is a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc for folks who want a taste of New Zealand fruitiness restrained and shaped by Sancerre-like minerality and cut.  The aromas burst with ripe green melon, orange zest, and mango fruit with a beguiling touch of crushed mint and herb.  It’s round and fleshy in your mouth at first, with big ripe fruit flavors before lemon/lime acidity and a dash of crushed stone bring things to a dry, mouthwatering, finish.  A killer bottle to enjoy with Vietnamese or cilantro-laced Latin foods or with any kind of goat or sheep’s milk cheese.  Lot of wine for the money here!

Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Product #28614 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2013

Basically a “baby Sancerre”, this exciting young Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the same chalky slate soils you’ll find across Sancerre from 10-40 year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel and allowed to rest 3 months on the fine lees.  The vineyard is located just outside the legal boundary of Sancerre, but the flavors make you feel right in the middle!

As in the past, generous, fresh, aromas of fresh flowers, just cut grass, white grapefruit, and a hint of wet stones burst from the glass.  Then you’ll find a tad more richness and zest to the crisp citrus and green apple fruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh grass.  As the refreshing acidity wells up to make your mouth water, a bit of Sancerre’s trademark “gun flint” character shows underneath the juicy bright fruit.  There’s a wonderful rich/brisk, sweet/sour contrast in this wine that will delight and fascinate with every sip.  Served cold, it’s thirst quenching and refreshing.  Let it warm up a touch and it’s layered, complex, and a fantastic match for seafood, fresh vegetables, and – of course – goat cheese.

Hedges CMS White 2012 Hedges CMS White 2012

Labeled "Sauvignon Blanc," but more interesting than that due to 22% Chardonnay and 2% Marsanne in the blend.  Exuberant aromas of pear, grapefruit peel, and wet straw with hints of custard and just-snapped asparagus.  It's crisp and mouth-tingling on entry then big and rich as it fills your mouth with flavors of tangy citrus, kiwi, green apple, and more.  The sweet fruit pumps on through the long finish were more acidity wells up to make your mouth water and pulls you back for sip after sip.  Great sipper and will work beautifully with seafood or green salads.

Arona Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2013 Arona Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2013

The new release of this certified sustainable New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc once again delivers plenty of Kiwi character with a little extra complexity and focus - possibly from 10% Riesling co-fermented with the Sauvignon!  Juicy, bright, and vivacious with generous flavors of pink grapefruit, passion fruit, lemon, lime, and fresh grass.  There's a nice minerality on the mouthwatering finish.  Generous, but nicely in control, this will be just as at home on the table as it is by itself on the back deck.

The class and restraint that makes this such a fine New Zealand SB to enjoy more than a glass of (and work with food!) tends to depress the scores a bit.  Delicious, refreshing, and very balanced.

"The succulent green apple, passion fruit and lime peel flavors are showcased here, with mineral and floral details matched to a light and extremely refreshing body."Wine Spectator 88 points

Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc Petit Clos 2013 Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc Petit Clos 2013

What happens with one of Sancerre's best winemakers tries his hand at New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc?  Complexity, length and sophistication to go with the classic New Zealand fruit!  Plenty of grapefruit, passion fruit, and gooseberry, with a touch of mineral and citrus rind. Juicy, fresh, and very long on the lemon, lime, and grapefruit finish.

"A French-owned outpost in the South Pacific, Clos Henri seems to be finally coming of age. This entry-level offering delivers a hint of smoky, fumé character, but also plenty of ripe fruit, ranging from fig, melon and stone fruit to zestier notes of passion fruit. It’s reasonably full-bodied, with an attractive, silky mouthfeel and a touch of gingery spice on the finish."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Aromas of orange blossom and grapefruit are accompanied by lemon, melon, peach and nectarine flavors that are ripe, juicy and refreshing.

Here's a terrific bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that pumps out loads of juicy, ripe, fruit but avoids the white grapefruit and jalapeno pepper notes that overtake under-ripe examples.  It explodes with aromas and flavors of super-ripe red grapefruit, tangerine, Mandarin orange and a touch of passion fruit.  A touch of grassy herb weaves in and out of the fruit flavors and continues as a note of citrus pith comes up on the dry, mouthwatering, finish.  A killer bottle of Sauvignon Blanc for any warm afternoon!

A dead on, right-down the middle, example, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly-Fume delivers big aromas of white peach, straw, and white grapefruit.  Bright, loaded with flinty mineral and smoke, and very long, it delivers more citrus, peach, and fresh almond flavors and a long, smoky/flinty, finish.  A textbook Pouilly-Fume for fish and cheeses but rich enough to just sip, too.

"From vineyards planted in 1979, among the first planted in the southern valleys off the Wairau plain, this outstanding wine offers bright flavors of red fruits, impeccable balance and a long, graceful finish." *** Washington Post
