SAUVIGNON BLANC WINES
If you’re looking for a wine that is a great conversation starter, a Sauvignon Blanc is perfect. It’s been said that the wine takes on the tastes of its climate. Meaning the grape may taste differently because of the climate and surrounding environment. Another factor is the ripeness of the grape.
The Sauvignon blanc vine often buds late but ripens early, which allows it to perform well in sunny climates when not exposed to overwhelming heat. In warm regions such as South Africa, Australia and California, the grape flourishes in cooler climate appellations such as the Alexander Valley area. In areas where the vine is subjected to high heat, the grape will quickly become over-ripe and produce wines with dull flavors and flat acidity. Rising global temperatures have caused farmers to harvest the grapes earlier than they have in the past.
