Just because SB is a common/hackneyed varietal doesn't mean they can't be outstandingly great wines, versatile, delicious, and mostly reasonably priced.
SB is a go-to white wine for me and many others; pair with fruit, fruity desserts, nuts, fish (I prefer white fish), oysters, lobsters, light poultry, and where Pinot Gris (Grigio) shines, so can Sauvignon Blanc; and why do I say such a thing, because as you discover SB from New Zealand, France, California (the subject of this post), the Northwest, South Africa, Italy, Chile, and even Spain all show SB in different ways: the mother of Cabernet Sauvignon travels well and adapts well.
