Pascal's Wine Pick: Sauvignon Blanc

Pascal's Wine Pick: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc wine grapes have a rich history that goes back to the 18th century in the Loire valley as well as the Bordeaux wine vineyards of France. This distinguished grape has been used throughout centuries to embolden other varieties, as well as stand alone as a one of the most popularly consumed wines in the world. No matter how you're sipping, the delectable flavors of Sauvignon Blanc are sure to swoon you with their charm.

Origins

The grape develops its buds very late in the wine season, but ripens very quickly. It thrives in temperate climate conditions existing in many wine regions of the world. Today Sauvignon Blanc grapes are produced in Bordeaux, France; California; Australia; New Zealand; and South Africa. Not only does the grape stand alone as a delicious variety, but it has been blended with others to produce delicious flavors we know and love. The older variety of Sauvignon Blanc was used in making the red Jura and Carmenere varieties. When it went through a crossing with Cabernet Franc, and a new noble Cabernet Sauvignon grape was produced. 

Popularity

Over the years, Sauvignon Blanc has gained much popularity across the world. It is now number eight on the list of the most popular planted wine grapes across the world. The growing popularity of Sauvignon Blanc has led to this grape being celebrated through an international holiday — International Sauvignon Blanc Day is observed each year on May 17.
