Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is an aromatic white grape variety, usually displaying strong aromas of gooseberry, elderflower, green pepper and asparagus. Most wines have no oak flavours and do not benefit from bottle age.

Wines made from Sauvignon Blanc are usually dry, medium bodied and have a high acidity (the latter characteristic also makes the grape suitable for sweet wine blends such as Sauternes):
