Sauvignon Blanc wines are broadly classified as being produced in Old World and New World Sauvignon Blanc regions
. While this wine is primarily a product of the Loire Valley, its popularity has led to production in Italy, Spain, Romania and Moldova. In terms of New World regions, Sauvignon Blanc is also produced in several countries, including New Zealand, the United States, South Africa, Chile, and Australia. As a result, Sauvignon Blanc flavours stay true to the richness of peach and citrus while expressing versatility in a variety of undertones. New World Sauvignon Blanc wines are crisper and far more assertive in flavour with notes of yellow fruit, grapefruit, mango, and guava. In France, this wine is usually blended with Semillon and Muscadelle wines for a softer, fruitier blend. Sauvignon Blanc food pairing is as versatile as the wine itself! It’s traditionally combined with light goat cheeses and crème fraiche, but it is also the wine of choice for oriental and occidental seafood cuisines that feature haddock, bass, perch, sole, trout, snapper, tilapia, and an assortment of shellfish.
