Sauvignon Blanc Wine Gift Baskets
Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine that is typically medium-bodied, crisp, dry, and refreshing. Sauvignon Blanc wines are usually consumed young. Sauvignon Blanc grapes have a naturally high acidity which makes the wines taste tangy, tart, nervy, racy or zesty. Sauvignon Blanc is significantly influenced by the wine-making process. The longer the grape skin is in contact with the juice the more intense Sauvignon Blanc wines tend to be. The temperature during fermentation also impacts the flavors and bouquets of Sauvignon Blanc wines. The colder the temperature the more fruit and tropical fruit flavors come out. Sauvignon Blanc wines processed / aged with botrytis have bouquets / flavors of apricot, quince, peach, honey, pineapple, vanilla, and candy. Sauvignon Blanc wines processed / aged with malolactic have bouquets / flavors of butter and cream. Sauvignon Blanc wines processed / aged in light oak have bouquets / flavors of vanilla and sweet wood.
