Your Sauvignon Blanc Sunday Case includes two bottles each of the following:
2015 Cepage Sauvignon Blanc - Vin de Pays, France
There are many reasons to be a fan of Sauvignon Blanc. It is light, refreshing, vibrant, and versatile. Cépage Sauvignon Blanc hails from France, the white grape’s country of origin. With crisp notes of citrus and exotic fruits, Cépage is perfectly balanced with a sense of freshness and a lingering finish. This wine drinks brilliantly on its own, but truly shines when paired with fresh fish and creative salads.

2016 Marquis de Bacalan Sauvignon Blanc - Bordeaux, France
While almost 90% of the wine produced in France’s legendary Bordeaux region is red, Bordeaux whites are made with the same care and eye for detail as the region’s reds. For example, 2016 Marquis de Bacalan Sauvignon Blanc thrilled us with its sophistication. This vibrant white is a pale lemon color with green tints, a fantastically fresh nose of citrus, white peach, and honeysuckle, and a gentle creaminess on the palate.

2016 Maison Gourmand Vin Blanc - Comte Tolosan, France
Luxurious, full-bodied blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Loin de l’Oeil grapes, picked at perfect ripeness to showcase southwest France’s incomparable terroir. 2016 Maison Gourmand Vin Blanc is fresh, harmonious, and fruity, with prominent citrus that makes it the perfect pairing for seafood.
2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc - Central Valley, Chile
Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains, Nguilleu wines are emblematic of the balance of tradition and innovation that characterizes the growing Chilean wine scene. 2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a cold weather climate, and steel-aged for a bright and tart feel. The aromas are perfumed with grapefruit, and the flavors offer notes of lemon, gooseberry, and grass, with a mild salinity that is balanced by mellow honeysuckle on the finish.
Award Winner: Gold Medal, 2017 International Eastern Wine Competition
2016 Paperbark Semillion/Sauvignon Blanc - South Australia
From a fifth-generation winemaking family in southern Australia’s historic Barossa Valley region, Paperbark wines are as loveable as their namesake, an Australian tree with peeling bark and fluffy white flowers. Made from a nicely balanced blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 Paperbark White Blend is pale straw with green hues in the glass, sharing aromas of citrus, lemon grass and papaya. The fruit continues to the palate, which has a refreshing lemon acidity.
2015 James and Bell Sauvignon Blanc - California
California Sauvignon Blanc is known as an exceptionally food-friendly wine. James and Bell’s take on this subtly savory white offers aromas and flavors of summer melon, peach and citrus, which are great with spicy foods and fish. Meanwhile, the wine’s acidity makes it the perfect counterpoint to fats. Try it with green veggies sautéed in butter. Keep plenty of crisp and dry James and Bell Sauvignon Blanc on hand—you’re bound to find plenty of occasions to uncork this versatile white wine.
