Sauvignon Blanc is usually high in acid, light in body and citrusy. It can have herbal, grassy smells and tastes but sometimes, in warm climates, the citrus is less and there are more tropical fruit tastes. It does not pair as well with savory or sweet dishes but rather with lighter foods that have an acidic component such as lemon or vinegar.
Food pairings for Albarino, Assyrtico, Grüner Veltliner, Rkatsiteli, and Sicilian wines from the Etna DOC that are predominantly Carricante, would be similar.
