Crisp, bold, and refreshing, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most versatile white wines available and definitely one of our favourites!

Sauvignon Blanc is a brightly acidic white wine with fruit-forward tastes. If you were comparing, say, a Pinot Grigio vs Sauvignon Blanc, the latter is bolder, grassier, and more acidic, while the former is softer and more subtle.

Sauvignon Blanc has a vast range of flavour profiles which make it so versatile when matching with food. When you have bold flavours in a wine it’s good to look for food with bold flavours to match.

Some great Sauvignon Blanc food pairings include tart dressings heavy with fresh garden herbs, salt forward sauces, spicy dishes, soft cheeses and seafood. The tartness and acidity of the wine will cut through heavy dishes and enhance subtle flavours. It will work beautifully with light, delicate flavours as well, which makes it great for white meats, any vegetables, and fresh tomatoes.

We generally wouldn’t recommend this white wine for heavy, rich dishes with gravy or rich sauces, though. We normally don’t jump on the must drink this wine with this food bandwagon though so if you like it, have it.

So Cimicky fans, what do you pair with Sauvignon Blanc? #barossa #ras_nsw #team #thankyou #awardwinningwine #barossacellardoor #adelaide #travel #explore #australianwine #southaustralia #southaustralianwine #cimickywines #hiddengem #sauvignonblanc #kpmg #PJCharteris #foodwine #foodpairing
