4.6/5

Vivino’s tips: Good value for money. Similar wines usually cost 50% more.

Region: France, Sancerre

Tasting notes: Ripe Grapefruit, Melon, Honeysuckle

Ripe, exotic nose of grapefruit, melon, and sweet floral essences. A lush and juicy, with striking creaminess of texture and a polished finish.

This is an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc at a very competitive price for the quality. Try it with goat cheese and you’ll be in heaven!

4.2/5

Vivino’s tips: Good value for money. Similar wines usually cost 89% more.

Region: France, Cheverny

Tasting notes:
Citrus, Grapefruit, Pear, Bell Pepper

A pale straw in the glass with light fleeting scents of jalapino & bell pepper cloaked in scents of wet stone and citrus.

In the mouth there was good minerality that transitioned into flavors of lemon zest in the midpalate and then closed with good acidity and minerality.

For the price, it is a true bargain! Be quick…

4.3/5

Vivino’s tips: 95 by Wine Orbit

Region: New Zealand, Marlborough

Tasting notes: Guava, Passion Fruit, Lime.

Intense Sauvignon Blanc with strong guava, passion fruit, lime and a suggestion of nutty yeast lees character. The wine has a weighty, mouth-filling texture and lengthy finish.

Seriously, for the quality you get, less than $15 is a gift!

4.2/5

Region: United States, Napa Valley

Tasting notes:
Lemon, Grapefruit, Honeydew.

Here is an extract from the Vivino Editor’s note: “The Legendary Cakebread Delivers the Goods—Yet Again—with This Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc That’s Earned 100 PERFECT 5.0 ★ Vivino User Ratings!” 

Now, the user might have been a little too enthusiastic… still, for this price, this is one of the best Sauv Blanc Napa you can find!

4.3/5

Vivino’s tips: Great value for money. Similar wines usually cost 3 times as much.

Region: United States, Russian River Valley

Tasting notes: Lime, Lemon, Melon, Straw

It’s not a typo, this wine is priced a third vs to its peers…🤩

Aromas of green grass and lime give way to subtle flavors of dried apricot, vibrant Meyer lemon and lime zest on the palate. A refreshing, food friendly wine.

Here an extract from the Vivino Editor’s note: “Zesty, New Zealand-Styled Sauvignon Blanc From Hallowed Russian River Valley Vines. A No Brainer Multiple Case Buy For All SB Fans! This Won’t Last Long…”

4.2/5

Vivino’s tips: This vintage rates better than any other year for this wine

Region: United States, Columbia Valley

Tasting notes: Melon, Apple, Citrus, Straw.

Chateau Ste. Michelle wines are crafted at two facilities: The white wines are made at the Woodinville winery near Seattle and the red wines at the Canoe Ridge Estate winery in eastern Washington.

This is a very affordable yet enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc, perfect for the every day drinking or any informal occasions.

4.4/5

Vivino’s tips: Good value for money. Similar wines usually cost 74% more.

Region: France, Sancerre

Tasting notes: Citrus, Pear, Green Apple, Gooseberry.

Intense gooseberry fruit and leafy nettle notes that also perfume the fruity, full and mouth watering palate.

This wine isn’t just great, it also offer a very good value for money that it’s hard to beat. If you can have great quality for a cheap price, why not going for it?

4.1/5

Vivino’s tips: Great value for money. Similar wines usually cost 3 times as much.

Region: France, Entre-deux-Mers

Tasting notes: Citrus, Grapefruit, Peach, Grass.

In case you wonder, it’s not a typo. This wine is priced 3 times less than its peers. I’d be quick…

It’s a blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, and 20% each of Muscadelle, Semillon, and Sauvignon Gris.

To be drunk within three years to keep its freshness. But it can also be kept, getting rounder and more balanced in the bottle.

4.2/5

Region: Italy·Südtirol – Alto Adige

Tasting notes: Ripe Apricot, Mandarin, Passion fruit, Elderflower

Intensive straw yellow with a delicate green shimmer. Ripe fruit aromas of apricot, mandarin and passion fruit mingle with elements of elderberry, nettle and mint.

The fruitiness continues on the palate in combination with a fine acidity. The wine scores with a good structure and a minerally but at the same time aromatic finish.

4.4/5

Vivino’s tips: Good value for money. Similar wines usually cost 30% more.

Region: Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Tasting notes: Apple, Peach, Pineapple, Gooseberry.

Light gold with green highlights, explosive nose with elder flowers and hints of sage and mint, white peach and gooseberry. Dry, very balanced, ripe fruit with citrus notes, long finale.

If you have never tried this Sauvignon Blanc style, start with this bottle.
