Sauvignon Blanc, also Blanc Fume, Sauvignon Jaune or Muskat-Sylvaner, is a white grape variety with unknown origin but strong distribution.
The vine has gained such great significance and popularity, that it entered the world wine elite and is designated as fine vine. Authentically it is a crisp wine with characteristic fragrance of gooseberries and redcurrants, often as well with a „green“ bouquet (freshly cut grass), and an inimitable mineral aroma.
European home of this grape variety is the Loire Valley in western France; great names are, e.g. Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Sauvignon is also important in Bordeaux and in many other regions in Europe.
Origin: unknown, but it’s a very old grape variety
