What is Sauvignon Blanc? Wine Varietal Facts – From Flavour to Grape Variety
This is pretty much my favourite, go-to white. It's light, fresh, slightly acidic, and not too sweet. It works great for dinner parties and summer patios.
I'm big on smell, and I get lost in this wine, which is strongly floral/fruity; it reminds me of passion fruit and light flowers, similar to gardenia blossoms
I've found it pairs well with spicy dishes like butter chicken, or an oil/pesto-based pasta with peppers.
Truthfully, my favourite thing about Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is that it's often on sale and for approximately $20-$25/bottle...which means I can get a reliable, easy-to-please, well-rounded white wine on budget. My only issue is how much of an idiot I feel like trying to say "Sauvignon Blanc"...so instead, I pass with, "Sauv Blanc".
