Combine the mayonnaise, Sauvignon Blanc, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl and stir until well blended. Pour over the cabbage mixture, tossing to blend. Cover and refrigerate until serving. To make the balm, combine all of the ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste, in a small bowl. Stir to blend well and set aside. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the patties, combine 1/4 cup of the balm, the pork, onion, and seasoning blend in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form the portions into patties to fit the buns. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once and basting with the remaining balm, until done to preference, 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium. During the last few minutes of cooking, place the buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly. To assemble the burgers, on each roll bottom, place a patty and an equal portion of the coleslaw. Add the bun tops and serve.
