Sauvignon Blanc in California is usually a little fruitier than it is in France, and a little lighter in body and color than a typical Chardonnay.
Sauvignon Blanc might be the perfect wine for summertime and California makes some of the best. The wines are usually light, crisp, and brimming with gorgeous flavors of zesty lime, grapefruit, and melon. These fruit flavors are perfectly complemented with subtle herbal flavors.
Pairs well with seafood such as shell fish and vegetarian, or light dishes.
