Because of the dreamy climate, California Sauvignon Blancs are whatever wine makers wish them to be. Are you fond of New Zealander Sauvignon Blanc? How about a charming grassy aroma and gooseberry like acidity? More in the mood for a home grown Sauvignon Blanc? Here you go: all the fragrant passion fruit and ruby grapefruit you could ever wish for! Care for a smoother more sophisticated tryst? I’ve just the Sauvignon Blanc for you. It goes by the name Fume Blanc and from time matured in oaken cask, it is more voluptuous, softer on the palate and is generally generous with great aromas and flavours that range from melons to orchard fruit. No matter your imagination, California goes beyond satisfaction. There may not be a Sauvignon Blanc for everybody, but if there were you can bet it would come from California.
