Cloudy Bay Sau­vi­gnon Blanc (VINTAGES ESSENTIALS 304469, $35.95) is the iconic wine that first put New Zealand Sau­vi­gnon on the world’s wine map, as­ton­ish­ing con­nois­seurs with the vi­brant in­ten­sity of its fruit. It’s still a spe­cial treat, tight, racy and so­phis­ti­cat­edly multi-di­men­sional with lay­ered aro­mas of le­mon, goose­berry and hay.

Many Sau­vi­gnons in the New (and Old) World try to im­i­tate the Marl­bor­ough style—not Château des Charmes Sau­vi­gnon Blanc

VQA (LCBO 391300, $14.95) from Ni­a­gara. The in­spi­ra­tion for this wine has more to do with the Loire. So­phis­ti­cat­edly un­der­stated, it’s crisp, dry, bal­anced and light on its feet, with a bou­quet of cit­rus and grass—a re­fresh­ing taste of sum­mer any time of the year.
