Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc can often be very fruity and pungent. Nonetheless, light, lean Sauvignons do exists on the form of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume and other wines from the cool Loire Valley.

Some lighter, crisper style of Sauvignon are made in the coolest New World vineyards, such as Tasmania, Waipara/Canterbury in New Zealand, Casablanca Valley in Chile and Elgin in South Africa. These wines major on tangy citrus fruit rather than the richer, fruitier styles more generally seen in the New World.
