Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is a green-skinned grape variety which originates from the Bordeaux and Loire regions of France. It is now planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. Conversely, the grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon Blanc is widely cultivated in France, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, California, and South America. Depending on the climate, the flavour can range from aggressively grassy (green peppers, fresh-cut grass) to citrusy (grapefruit) to sweetly tropical (notably, passionfruit). Wine experts have used the phrase "crisp, elegant, and fresh" as a favourable description of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley and New Zealand. Following the Bordeaux example, it can also be barrel-aged, which gives it more roundness and elegance. Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with fish or cheese, particularly Chèvre. It is also known as one of the few wines that can pair well with sushi.
