Sauvignon Blanc wines
Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. It is now widely planted in many wine regions around the world, including New Zealand, Australia, Chile, South Africa, and California. Sauvignon Blanc grapes produce wines that are often crisp, dry, and refreshing, with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, and grassy herbaceousness. They are commonly used to make both single-varietal Sauvignon Blanc wines and blended wines, such as the popular Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Sauvignon Blanc grapes are known for their high acidity and early ripening, making them a popular choice for winemakers looking to produce fresh, vibrant wines.
