(pairing food with sauvignon blanc)

Grown all over the world, and recognizable by its flavors of lemongrass, grapefruit and gooseberries. [Wtf are gooseberries?] A less flattering (yet common) descriptor of the aroma is cat pee. Try not to think of that next time you open Sauv Blanc. Just try.

Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and fresh, and a slam dunk pairing when it comes to most seafood. Anything from shellfish to meatier fish will work really well. If you're not a sparkling wine fan, the lean, mineral driven Sauvignon Blancs from the Loire Valley (Sancerre) in France are fantastic with raw oysters. Sauv Blanc will also work really well with white meat like chicken or pork. And if you're having a dinner salad with a vinaigrette or citrus dressing then look no further.
