Description

From the French word sauvage, meaning “wild”, we get the name of this green-skinned grape. Aptly named, as vines of Sauvignon Blanc would grow ferociously if they were never inhibited by the business end of a pair of pruning shears. The flavors of the wine are just as unruly, ranging from acutely grassy to joyfully tropical. Grapes grown in cooler climates tend to produce more acidic wines with flavors of grass and green bell peppers with limited tropical or floral notes. Warmer climates can intensify the tropical fruit character as long as the grower is careful to not let the grapes over ripen on the vine. Sauvignon Blanc experiences little to no enhancement from ageing in the bottle and is almost always consumed young.

Although known for its wide range of flavors, Sauvignon Blanc is widely known for having green flavors that are enjoyed by some and a complete turn off for others. Chile Sauvignon Blanc, however, has far less of these flavors and is more dominated by a citrusy character. More akin to the New Zealand style but slightly more understated, Sauv Blanc from Chile is distinguished by flavors of stone fruit, passion fruit, and lime.

Our Chile Sauvignon Blanc is wonderfully herbaceous with overtones of stone fruit and tropical fruit. A dry sauv blanc with a light-medium body, absent of oak character, and an alcohol content of 12.5% by volume.

The VineCo Original Sauvignon Blanc has one rule: consume young. With no benefits to aging, you should start enjoying this wine as soon as it’s ready. How you enjoy this wine is entirely up to you—it pairs so well with such a wide range of flavors that you can enjoy it with every course of the meal from appetizers to dessert. This versatility may explain why Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular options among the very short list of wines that pair well with sushi.
