Should Sauvignon Blanc be Refrigerated?

Why is chablis so expensive?

Short Answer:

Yes, Sauvignon Blanc should be refrigerated to enhance its crisp and refreshing qualities. Ideally, it should be chilled to around 45-50°F (7-10°C) before serving to fully appreciate its vibrant citrus and tropical fruit flavors. At Saghi, we recommend refrigerating your Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy its bright and refreshing profile at its best.

As wine enthusiasts, we’re often faced with the question: Should Sauvignon Blanc be Refrigerated?

At Saghi Wine Shop, we understand the importance of serving wine at the perfect temperature to enhance its flavor profile. Let’s delve into the debate and uncover the best practices for storing and serving this beloved varietal.

1. Understanding Sauvignon Blanc:

Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile white wine known for its crisp acidity and vibrant flavors.
Originating from France’s Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions, it has since gained popularity worldwide.

2. Factors Affecting Serving Temperature:

The serving temperature significantly impacts the wine’s taste and aroma.


Sauvignon Blanc’s refreshing qualities are best showcased when served slightly chilled.
However, excessive cold can dull its delicate flavors and aromatics.

3. Ideal Serving Temperature:

Aim for a serving temperature between 45-50°F (7-10°C) to maintain the wine’s balance.
Avoid over-chilling, as it can mask the wine’s nuanced characteristics.

4. Refrigeration Guidelines:

While refrigeration is acceptable, it’s essential to avoid storing Sauvignon Blanc in excessively cold conditions.
Opt for a standard refrigerator setting rather than the coldest setting to preserve the wine’s integrity.

5. Alternative Cooling Methods:

If refrigeration isn’t available, consider using an ice bucket filled with a mixture of ice and water to chill the wine rapidly.
Alternatively, place the bottle in the refrigerator for a shorter duration before serving.

6. Serving Tips:

Allow the wine to warm up slightly after refrigeration to unleash its full spectrum of flavors and aromas.
Serve in stemmed glasses to prevent the heat from your hands warming the wine prematurely.

Conclusion:

At Saghi Wine Shop, we believe that serving Sauvignon Blanc at the optimal temperature enhances the overall tasting experience. By understanding the delicate balance between chilling and serving, you can savor every sip of this exquisite varietal. Cheers to enjoying Sauvignon Blanc the right way!
