Wine Story: International Sauvignon Blanc Day - celebration of your favorite white wine

20:26, May 3

Every year on the first Friday of May, the world celebrates International Sauvignon Blanc Day, dedicated to one of the most popular varieties of white wine, which has won the hearts of wine connoisseurs around the world.

The history of Sauvignon Blanc goes back several centuries. Its homeland is considered to be France, namely the Bordeaux region. The first mention of this variety dates back to the 18th century, and its name comes from the French words “sauvignon,” which means “wild,” and “blanc,” which translates as “white.” This designation reflects the characteristics of this variety: wild grapevines with small clusters and a characteristic taste.

What makes Sauvignon Blanc so special? First, its bright aroma with notes of ripe fruit, green pepper, citrus, and herbs. Second, the taste of this wine is often described as fresh, lively, with a velvety and rather persistent aftertaste. In addition, this variety is able to express terroir; that is, the unique characteristics of the place where the grapes grow, which makes each bottle of Sauvignon Blanc wine unique and inimitable.

Let's open the selection with this bright white dry wine made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which grow in vineyards in the Casablanca Valley in Chile. The bright and rich aroma of this wine intertwines tones of tropical fruits and berries, complemented by shades of juicy citrus, which, if the wine is allowed to breathe oxygen, are followed by subtle herbal notes. They are less expressive than the New Zealand one, but due to this, they make the Chilean counterpart more fruity. The taste of this wine is refreshing, balanced, sophisticated and light, pleasing with its soft texture, notes of green fruit and citrus nuances. The aftertaste is quite long. Take a glass as an aperitif or a bottle to accompany a dish of fresh, juicy fish.

Average price – 4,900 drams.

Here we already have the terroir of the Marlborough region of New Zealand, which is famous for its maritime climate with cool nights and warm daytime temperatures. The soil in Marlborough is often rich in minerals such as clay and silica, giving wine from this region its characteristic mineral notes and elegance. All this is embodied in this wine: a subtle, fresh aroma, revealing hints of melon, passion fruit and guava, and a soft, clean taste with citrus and mineral accents, as well as light floral nuances in a not very persistent, but very pleasant and pungent aftertaste. Try it with light dishes that use avocado, shrimp and sun-dried tomato bruschetta, or a sweet-and-sour berry tartlet.

Average price – 6,400 drams.

This wine, originally from Tuscany and imported to Armenia, is collected by hand early in the morning in order to preserve overnight freshness and coolness for spontaneous fermentation in the cellar. It has the aroma of gooseberries and grapefruit, and, with good decanting, a trail of white flowers will be added. The taste of this wine is simple and extremely clear, woven from not very ripe pineapples and melons, while the aftertaste reveals a creamy note. Tuscan Sauvignon Blanc is ideally combined with shellfish and fish, risotto with mushrooms and seafood.

Average price – 9,800 drams.

This Argentinean wine from the southwest of the country delights with its elegant and fresh lemon aroma, which is complemented by honeyed notes of flowers, creating a real bouquet of impressions from the first sniff. Its light but noticeable mineral undertone adds complexity and interest to this sophisticated drink. With each sip, the aftertaste stretches in the mouth, smoothly changing from one shade to another, leaving a very harmonious impression. This wine pairs well with Peruvian dishes such as ceviche and tiraditos.

Average price – 4,500 drams.
