2019 Bordeaux Blanc (Cedres, Chateau des)

Chateau des Cedres, Bordeaux Blanc, Bordeaux, France 2019

100% Sauvignon Blanc

TANGELO & GRAPEFRUIT, WISPS OF TOASTY VANILLA

This Bordeaux blanc exhibits impressive distinctiveness and head-turning tropicality over the internationally-fashionable grapefruit-centric flavors that tend to trendily dominate much of the region’s current output. It owes its intensely tropical personality to gloriously ripe Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and while it is 100%, it carries itself more exotically and less herbaceously that we might expect. A small 2 and a half acre plot is the origin of this very limited outing from our friends at Chateau des Cèdres. Get it while it’s hot (or cold)!

Serving Suggestion: Langoustine w/ tarragon, garlic, olive oil or gumbo w/ crayfish (or shrimp) & chorizo. Arugula salad w/ carrot shavings & shaved sheep’s milk cheese w/ citrus-balsamic vinaigrette.

2019 Coteaux du Giennois Blanc (Bardin, Domaine Cedrick)

Cedrick Bardin, Coteaux du Giennois Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2019

{sustainable} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

ZESTY GRAPEFRUIT & TROPICAL NOTES, FRAGRANT & FIRM

Cédrick Bardin’s domaine (and dominion!) is a patchwork of property in Sancerre, Pouilly, and here, a few acres in heart of the lesser-known Coteaux du Giennois. Taking its name from the town of Gien, this appellation lies immediately to the north of its more famous neighbors and provides Bardin with a different, still excellent, expression for the estate’s starring variety, Sauvignon Blanc. Dominated by dark, clay-comprised soils, this plot yields subtler yet potentially more exotic character with tropical undercurrents shining through the more typical citric overtones. Yum!

Serving Suggestion: Calamari tempura. Ceviche. Chèvre & other goat cheeses.

Always one of our best values in white Bordeaux, this crisp, aromatic white gives so much and costs so little. The Buffeteau family has now been farming this estate for three generations and over the last ten years has updated their winery with modern equipment so that their wines can showcase terroir - the special characteristics of their land. Clean, bright and fresh, this Sauvignon blend has always impressed us and our friends.

Serving suggestions: Salad of fresh greens topped with sautéed mushrooms and grilled shrimp, finished with tangerine/cumin vinaigrette.

2019 Entre-Deux-Mers Haut-Benauge (Grand Portail, Chateau)

Chateau Grand Portail, Entre-Deux-Mers Haut-Benauge, Bordeaux, France 2019

{sustainable} 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Sauvignon Gris, 15% Semillon

MOUTHWATERING LIME, ZIPPY, LIVELY MINERALITY

From the smale enclave of Haut-Benage, Grand-Portail overlooks the Garonne River from a lofty 100 meters. The young Olivier Cailleux represents the sixth generation of his family to sustainably till the clay and limestone soils here – soils much like those of Sancerre. Perhaps that helps explain why this Sauvignon-based white has a tantalizingly juicy acidity that simply will not quit! It grips the sides of your mouth with a lime-ish zip and won't let go. The finish lasts for minutes...

Serving Suggestion: Anything green or coming from the sea. Maybe the best of both worlds... Salad Niçoise w/ rare tuna, haricot verts, tomato, olives, anchovies, & vinaigrette over some mixed greens.

2018 Pouilly-Fume (Bardin, Domaine Cedrick)

Cedrick Bardin, Pouilly-Fumé, Loire Valley, France 2018

{sustainable} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

grapefruit with flowers, HERBAL, Seashell Mineral

Bardin's vineyards are planted on classic Kimmeridgean marl soils using sustainable agriculture with generations of experience. Could you ask for more from any great Pouilly-Fumé? This classic French Sauvignon Blanc shows the minerality of the Loire coupled with modern winemaking techniques to add fresh flavors, citrus fruit and a racy, long finish. Lightly musky with a full-bodied intensity that is penetrating and long lasting.

Serving Suggestion: PF is fish wine to most, so you are safe there, but venture off to spicy Asian foods like the Thai food next door. Just the thing to quiet hot spices and blend with them in harmony.

2019 Sancerre Blanc (Girard & Fils, Domaine Michel)

Domaine Michel Girard & Fils, Sancerre Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2019

100% Sauvignon Blanc

RICH & RIPE, LIGHT MINERAL, SAVORY HERBAL

Winemaker Philippe Girard says this about his wine, "pungent fresh grassy aromas mingle with riper citrus-style fruits, rounder and fuller in the mouth but nevertheless finishing with a pure intensity and zippiness that you'd expect in classy Sancerre. Sauvignon Blanc at its best!" We couldn't agree more. That light citrus tropical thing he has going on here is due to the blending of four parcels, each with their own qualities. The sum is truly greater than their parts. A wonderful value and very classic in style.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheeses, especially those from the Loire Valley or our domestic versions from Looking Glass Dairy or Prodigal Farm.

2019 Sancerre Blanc (Bardin, Domaine Cedrick)

Cedrick Bardin, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 2019

{sustainable} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

GRAPEFRUIT & SOARING FLINTINESS, DILL & WHITE ASPARAGUS, GOOSEBERRY

Cedric Bardin's tiny estate, which straddles both shores of the Loire river (one foot gently kicking up Poully-Fuisse and the other planted in Sancerre), is a source of some of these regions' most remarkable values. The domaine's two-hectare holdings in Sancerre account for less than 20% of its total production, allowing for an unparalleled focus on quality. Every trademark of classic Sancerre abounds in this wine - Sauvignon Blanc's fiercely bright and citrusy personality, the clearly defined flintiness of the region's terroir, and the sumptuous herbal complexities that we crave from these distinctive whites.

Serving Suggestion: Goat cheeses - especially those with bloomy rinds & edible ash. Deep fried softshell crab. Poached egg & asparagus w/ béarnaise sauce.

2018 Sauvignon (Visintini)

Visintini, Sauvignon, Colli Orientali, Friuli, Italy 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

LAYERS OF GOLDEN PEAR, MELON AND THYME, INVIGORATING!

It's easy to think of Sauvignon Blanc as a one trick pony, since so many from around the world are made in that sharp, citrusy style. But this biodynamic bottling from Italy's Slovenian border shows its ability to offer uncommon complexity. While many Sauvignon Blanc's are pressed, fermented and bottled within a few months of harvest - ready to hit the market early the next spring - Visintini ages their Sauvignon Blanc on its lees over the winter to develop complexity and texture, cellaring it for another year or two until it sings with ripe, layered, succulent flavors.

Serving Suggestion: Chevre, honey, & black pepper crostinis (a la Toast). Roasted Cornish game hen, well-crusted w/ lemon, rosemary, & thyme.

2018 Sauvignon Blanc (Airfield Estates)

Airfield Estates, Sauvignon Blanc, Columbia Valley, Washington State 2018

TANGERINE & MANGOSTEEN, GRAPEFRUIT ZEST, PIÑA COLADA

While Sauvignon Blanc isn’t one of the variety’s that Washington wine lovers would be likely to count out as the states mainstays on five fingers, the hot, dry conditions east of the Cascades yields results similar to those of Napa or warmer mesoclimates in Chilés Valle Central. Constituting a counterpoint to the intensely grapefruit-centric renditions of New Zealand and the variety’s home turf in the Loire Valley, this suavely tropical and mouthwateringly aromatic offering is simultaneously sultry and summery.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled mahi w/ avocado & toasted corn salad. Vietnamese cellophane noodle salad w/ bell peppers, oranges, carrots, basil, & rice vinegar.

2019 Sauvignon Blanc (Bliss Family Vineyards)

Bliss Family Vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc, Mendocino, CA 2019

100% Sauvignon Blanc

TROPICAL FRUIT, MUSKY CITRUS, CRISP STARFRUIT AND PEAR

For three generations (beginning in the late nineteen thirties), the Bliss family has been dedicated to nurturing their vines and the vibrant wines which they yield. The 450 acres of vineyard are farmed sustainably and benefit from the Pacific Ocean's cool and soothing influence, which in this case contributes to a lively and impressively balanced Sauvignon Blanc with the citrus and tropical fruit that is a hallmark of the grape. Invigorating acidity and a refreshingly tangy finish underscore the wine's youthful energy.

Serving Suggestion: Seared tuna tempura with scallions and spicy aioli. Grilled chicken breast with black beans, corn, and minced garlic.

2019 Sauvignon Blanc (Stolpman Vineyards)

Stolpman Vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc, Ballard Canyon, Santa Barbara, California 2019

{organic} 100% Sauvignon Blanc

FAT, EXOTIC & AROMATIC. QUINCE, APPLE, GRAPEFRUIT

With Stolpman’s wines, winemaker Sashi Moorman continues his tendency towards, hyper-modern winemaking. Two separate lots are made in different styles then blended together. The first 90% is fully ripe, juicy and rich due to low yields. It is made in stainless steel tanks. The remaining 10% from a different site is harvested much later, then whole berry fermented and aged on the skins in oak to add more texture and aromatics. Once blended, you get the exotic creature that you now see before you. Decadent and juicy!

Serving Suggestion: This uber-rich Sauvignon calls out for assertive fusion cuisine. Top scallops seared in sesame oil with a mango/red onion salsa and serve over a drizzle of pesto.

Buitenverwachting, "Beyond" Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia, South Africa 2020

LIME & LEMON, LIGHT HERBS, BRIGHT & CRISP

Pronounced [bay-ten-fur-vachk-ting] and translating from Dutch to "beyond expectations," this South African producer crafts outstanding Sauvignon Blanc which is reminiscent of something from France's Loire but with accentuated ripeness, lime-like zestiness, tropicality, and herbal goodness that we love to enjoy with food. It's very bright, alive, and zingy all the way to the finish line.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled fish tacos loaded w/ tomatillo salsa, oregano, & a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Chicken breast grilled under a brick & brushed w/ a jalapeño, lime,& honey glaze.

ZESTY GRAPEFRUIT & LIME, SUMMERY TOMATO VINE, HERBS & MINERAL

“Ranga” refers to a soothing breeze in Maori language, and this classically-styled Marlborough Sauvignon is fresh and tangy, light-bodied but firm and brimming with rich, ripe citrus flavors and signature, zesty acidity. Fantastically refreshing & spectacular with food, this is an immediately recognizable example of NZ Sauvignon and a tremendous value that we love to sink our teeth into.

2019 Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon "Reserva Especial" (Calcu, Vinedos)

Calcu, Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon "Reserva Especial", Colchagua Valley, Chile 2019

68% Sauvignon Blanc, 32% Semillon

PINEAPPLE & JUICY CITRUS, RIPE & TROPICAL, VIBRANT & WHOLESOME

Chilean Sauvignon Blanc has increasingly become one of the most sought-after specialties of South America and frequently acts as a counterpoint to the lean, razory offerings associated with New Zealand's Marlborough. These often distinctly more tropical renditions owe their character to a warmer, drier climate. Representing this style very well and reminiscent of the juicy, full-figured Sauvignon Blancs of California (particularly those of Napa Valley), this denizen of the Andes' foothills leaps aromatically from the glass with bold, citrusy bravado.

Serving Suggestions: Mussels w/ garlic, butter, & lemon. Tomato, orange, and cucumber salad w/ scallions, corn, coriander,chives.

2020 Sauvignon Blanc Wairarapa (Paddy Borthwick)

Paddy Borthwick, Sauvignon Blanc, Wairarapa, New Zealand 2020

100% Sauvignon Blanc

CANTALOUPE & MELON. RIPE PASSIONFRUIT. LYCHEE & GOOSEBERRY. FRESH ACIDITY.

Having only 3% of land under vine and contributing only 1% of total production, Wairarapa is home to many of New Zealand’s smaller producers. This is where we find the Paddy Borthwick Estate. In 1985, Paddy, as a way to diversify his family’s legacy of farming (over 75 years!), decided to train as a viticulturist and winemaker. In 1996, after working across the globe perfecting his skills, he and his father began planting what came to be Borthwick Vineyard. This Sauvignon Blanc, with a wonderful balance of acidity and tropicality, is a prime example of what the sub-region of Gladstone has to offer. The alluvial soil found throughout the vineyard allows for smaller, more concentrated grapes, ultimately intensifying their flavor. In the end, a quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc!

Serving Suggestion: Grilled spicy grouper tacos w/ cilantro-lime crema & cotija cheese. Fish & chips. Grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon.

François Leclair and his son Vincent are in charge of Domaine de la Rochette, where four generations of fathers and sons have carefully tended 46 hectares of vineyards along the banks of the River Cher.

Lovers of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire will not be disappointed in the bright grapefruit and green pepper notes and fresh, lengthy finish.
