ABOUT CALIFORNIA SAUVIGNON BLANC

California Sauvignon Blanc wines are celebrated for their vibrant fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and refreshing qualities. Grown across various wine regions including Napa Valley, Sonoma County, and the Central Coast, Sauvignon Blanc thrives in California's diverse microclimates. The wines typically exhibit aromas of citrus fruits like lemon, lime, and grapefruit, often with herbaceous notes of fresh-cut grass, bell pepper, and sometimes tropical fruit nuances. In warmer regions, such as Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc tends to be more full-bodied with riper fruit flavors, while cooler climates like Sonoma produce wines with higher acidity and more herbal characteristics. California Sauvignon Blancs are versatile, pairing well with a range of foods from seafood and salads to poultry and fresh cheeses. Known for their approachability and consistent quality, these wines offer a delightful expression of California's winemaking prowess and terroir diversity.

  1. Vietnamese Spring Rolls: The fresh flavors of Vietnamese spring rolls, filled with herbs, shrimp or tofu, and vermicelli noodles, complement Sauvignon Blanc's citrusy notes and herbal undertones.

  2. Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Zest: The natural sweetness of grilled asparagus paired with a touch of lemon zest matches well with Sauvignon Blanc's citrusy aromas and herbal notes.
