Aromatic and Always Comes with Distinctive Herbaceous Notes
Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape variety that needs a cool to moderate climate to produce good quality grapes. It is usually produced as a single-varietal wine but sometimes will also be blended with Semillion. Sauvignon Blanc has pronounced aromas with light to medium body, and its wine is typically unoaked and consumed when it is young to preserve its floral and herbaceous notes. Sancerre AOC and Pouilly-Fumé AOC in France are two of the important regions for this grape, but other wine regions with cool to moderate climate like Marlborough in New Zealand, are also known for very good and outstanding refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.
Characteristics: Light to medium body, typically high acidity, floral aromas (blossom), herbaceous aromas (green bell pepper/capsicum, grass), green-fruit flavours (apple, gooseberry) and wet stones
