This deliciously crisp white wine is extremely popular thanks to the winemakers in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley in France. It tastes really different as compared to other white wines due to its green and herbaceous flavors. It goes best with white meats like chicken and turkey, along with tilapia, sea bass, redfish, halibut, snapper, mussels, crab, lobster, and clams. Sauvignon Blanc is most fragrant and fresh in the cooler climate of the Loire Valley where cut-grass, nettles, elderflower, blackcurrant leaf and gooseberries are the key flavors with zesty and flinty undertones. However, if it is from New Zealand, it has a more assertive tang in the pungently catty, floral style of Marlborough - depending on ripeness levels it ranges from green bean, tinned pea and asparagus flavors and the riper, more tropical characters of grapefruit, guava, passion fruit and mango.
