95 points Bob Campbell: "A blend of wines from the Upper Awatere Valley and the TWR home block in the Wairau Valley. Quite a tight, yet textural, sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime zest, lemongrass and a seasoning of tropical fruit and passionfruit character. An appealing wine." (01/2019) 94 points Sam Kim: "This is a gorgeous rendition of the variety; offering vibrancy as well as complexity within a delightful textural mouthfeel. Fragrant aromas of Gala apple, feijoa, nectarine and lemon peel with a hint of oatmeal on the nose. The palate is concen...

2018 Domaine du Vieil Orme Sauvignon Touraine Blanc
Top Pick!
The family-owned domaine dates back to 1804, located in a tiny Loire village named St-Julien-de Chédon. Since 2009, Laurent Benoist has been at the helm, focusing his efforts on sustainable farming and pure, terroir-driven wines. As a region, Touraine has the flexibility to plant a wide range of varieties, so it’s different from the more formal areas such as Vouvray, which only allows Chenin Blanc, or Sancerre, which only allows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In Touraine, they can grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, P...

2018 Domaine Cherrier Père & Fils Sancerre
Top Pick!
Domaine Cherrier was founded in 1930, and since then four generations of the family have run the estate. The estate has limestone and calcareous clay soils that wonderfully influence the character of the grapes grown there. The Sancerre is consistently delicious, with citrus, chalky mineral and light floral notes. Its dry finish complements seafood and cheese beautifully. K&L French Regional buyer Keith Mabry says: "The Cherrier to me is always one of the biggest crowd-pleasing Sancerres/Sauvignon Blancs from anywhere in the world."

The Kalinda label is an ongoing effort here at K&L to bring in great wines at below market prices. Each year we work with top producers throughout California to make and bottle these wines for our own label. We are asked not to disclose the name of the wineries with whom we work, because the normal retail price is usually about double what K&L sells the wine for.

Winery notes: Casino Mine Ranch is an estate vineyard located in the Sierra Foothills of Amador County. The winery is owned and managed by fourth-generation brothers, Jim and Rich Merryman. The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in stainless steel, aged sur lie with a small percentage of new oak, to preserve freshness and add roundness to the palate. This wine could carry you through a meal from oysters on the half shell, to roasted free-range chicken with local vegetables and wrapping it up with an Amalfi lemon tart.

2018 Nicolas Idiart Sauvignon Blanc Val de Loire
Top Pick!
Nicolas Idiart, winemaker and founder of Maison Idiart, grew up with a passion for wine, which he acquired from his father and grandfather. After graduating from winemaking school at Blanquefort in Bordeaux, Nicolas' enthusiasm for Loire wines brought him to work in Chinon, Touraine, and Muscadet, with stints further afield in Australia and New Zealand. Never quite sure where his niche was, he moved in to the sales side of the wine business, mainly in North America. After 7 long and ultimately unsatisfying years of sales, he decided to go back to winemak...

Another of the fine wines of Dominique Robin, Le Blanc de la Graside is sourced from a vineyard three miles south of Libourne that is planted with 60-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines. Grapes are harvested at full maturity and aged in casks to round out the wine's generous profile, while it retains a mineral-driven finish. Superb buy.

From one of Clyde's old friends, and from certified organic vineyards in the Redwood Valley AVA of Mendocino County, the Chance Creek Sauvignon Blanc is an intense expression of terroir. Grown in the rocky benchlands of Mendocino County with southwest exposure, this bottling incorporates 4% Viognier to endow the wine with an added spicy allure. It was aged in 2% new French oak before bottling. The Chance Creek vineyard site, originally planted to Palomino grapes used in the production of California sherry, was purchased by Lou Bock in 1979. He soon re...

Domaine Begude is a small, family-owned property located high in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Limoux region of the Languedoc. The long, cool growing season lends itself perfectly to the production of crisp and delicate wines, and this Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. More in the style of a Loire Valley Sancerre, with its fine, mineral-laden nose and fresh citrus fruits on the palate, this is the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, oysters or just by itself. Make this one your house white! Organically certified by Ecocert.

2017 Roquefort Blanc, Bordeaux
Top Pick!
The wine just shines! Sauvignon Blanc (the base of the wine is zippy and herbaceous and has brisk acidity), Semillon (for body and structure), and Muscadelle.

According to Robert Parker: "Thanks to the talented oenological team of Denis Dubourdieu and his assistant, Christophe Olivier, Roquefort is generally one of the most interesting generic white Bordeaux."

2018 Domaine la Clef du Récit Sancerre
Top Pick!
Winemaker Anthony Girard grew up in his family's Sancerre winery, but spent a number of years learning about wine production all over the world before returning home to continue working with Sauvignon Blanc. While continuing to help with the namesake Girard label, Anthony wanted to create his own project on the side and eventually purchased a small plot of pristine real estate near the town of Récy with primo Sancerre limestone soils. After acquiring the vines he was given a large key as a symbolic gesture of new ownership, or a "clef du récit," which be...

97 points Decanter: "Our sole Sauvignon Blanc representative in the Best In Show class this year comes from Marlborough rather than any of the key Northern Hemisphere sites, but our judges loved the way in which this was not necessarily obvious from its profile. With its fresh, sappy, crushed-spring-leaf aromas and limpid, long, vinous yet tender profile in the mouth, this is simply great Sauvignon from an outstanding site rather than one of the overt or flamboyant Marlborough Sauvignons drinkers have become used to (and sometimes bored by). There's no s...

92 points Bob Campbell: "Quite a serious sauvignon with good weight and a pleasingly rich texture. A hint of tropical fruit with melon, nectarine and nutty yeast lees flavours. Dry but not austere.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cadaretta has turned out a fine 2015 Columbia Valley Sauvignon Blanc (there’s roughly 11% Semillon in the blend), and it's clean, crisp and steely, with notes of citrus, crushed rock and green herbs.

From the producer: "Our vineyards were harvested early to capture optimum flavour ripeness while ensuring that less natural sugar was produced to convert into alcohol in this lower alcohol wine. The fruit from each vineyard was kept separate throughout the winemaking process to ensure integrity of each site and to provide the greatest possible number of blending combinations. The fruit was gently pressed, cold settled, racked and cool fermented with selected yeast strains to enhance the unique aromatics and flavours. After fermentation, the wines remaine...

Tilth Sauvignon Blanc is produced by Driscoll Wine Company, founded by former chef turned winemaker Jason Driscoll and his wife Hilary Driscoll.

Price: $19.95

Wine Enthusiast: "This is a fruity and fresh-tasting wine that's light to medium in body, very aromatic and has flavors like a fruit salad of apples, melons and peaches with a dash of lemon juice. All that fruitiness verges on sweetness, so dry-wine stalwarts beware.

Decanter: "This is a lovely, ripe-fruited wine from the Dubourdieu home estate, now vinified by his son Jean-Jacques.
