Sauvignon blanc glasses are tall and narrow, with a slightly slender bowl concentrating a white wine’s fruity flavors. The slim bowl runs proportionate to its topmost rim, which slants delicately inward to funnel fruit flavors and aromas to the nose and front of the mouth.
Originally designed to enhance the vibrant lime, nectarine, kiwi, and passion fruit flavors in its namesake sauvignon blanc wine, this glass type also helps preserve many varietals’ natural acidity and minerality. Indeed, the glass’ shape moves wine immediately to the front and top of the mouth, which keeps acidity sharp and uplifting, rather than muddling it in the less sensitive rear of the tongue. Sides of the mouth detect acidity the most; this glass causes the tongue to form a U-shape, directing the wine down the front towards the center of the palate, causing a smoother sip.
The Sauvignon Blanc glass is perfect for all styles of this variety, from the grassy, fruit-forward wines of the Marlborough to the oak-aged, honeyed blends from Bordeaux. It is also suitable for other light- to medium-bodied, fruity, or floral wines.
