SAUVIGNON BLANC

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape most likely gets its name from the French words sauvage ("wild") and blanc ("white") due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. It is possibly a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. The grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon blanc is widely cultivated in France, Chile, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and California.

Depending on the climate, the flavor can range from aggressively grassy to sweetly tropical. In cooler climates, the grape has a tendency to produce wines with noticeable acidity and "green flavors" of grass, green bell peppers and nettles with some tropical fruit (such as passion fruit) and floral (such as elderflower) notes. In warmer climates, it can develop more tropical fruit notes but risk losing a lot of aromatics from over-ripeness, leaving only slight grapefruit and tree fruit (such as peach) notes.

Wine experts have used the phrase "crisp, elegant, and fresh" as a favorable description of Sauvignon blanc from the Loire Valley and New Zealand. Sauvignon blanc, when slightly chilled, pairs well with fish or cheese, particularly chèvre. It is also known as one of the few wines that can pair well with sushi.

Along with Riesling, Sauvignon blanc was one of the first fine wines to be bottled with a screwcap in commercial quantities, especially by New Zealand producers. The wine is usually consumed young, as it does not particularly benefit from aging, as varietal Sauvignon blancs tend to develop vegetal aromas reminiscent of peas and asparagus with extended aging. Dry and sweet white Bordeaux, including oak-aged examples from Pessac-Léognan and Graves, as well as some Loire wines from Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre are some of the few examples of Sauvignon blancs with aging potential.

The first Friday in May is International Sauvignon Blanc Day.

    Spring Seed Wine Company 'Forget Me Not' Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon 2018 (Organic)

    Winemaking

    Making the Forget-me-not in the tradition of a beautiful fresh and floral dry white style is reasonably simple. We pick both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc at night, to keep hold of the delicate characters of the varieties. Semillon is picked later, generally. We ferment both Sem and SB in stainless steel tanks, because we can control the temperature in the tanks and ensure a cool ferment. We don’t mature the wine in oak barrels, because we are making a fresh bright wine. Oxygen is the enemy of the floral characters, so we try and keep it away (this is called reductive handling). Once the grapes have gone through ferment it is pretty much straight to bottle.

    Tasting Note

    Imagine lying in a meadow late in summer with the smell of sweet hay all around you, underlain with the delicate fragrance of white flowers.  This is what you get when you open a bottle of the Spring Seed ‘Forget-me-not’ and when you taste it, that dreamy summer meadow follows through onto the palate with a twist of lime, too.  Forget-me-not is a classic white wine blend, and is so versatile; mixing and matching with spicy Thai food, creamy cheeses or on its own.
