Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile white grape variety known for its bright acidity and distinct flavours of citrus, green apple, and passion fruit, with aromas of grass, gooseberry, and herbal notes. It can also have a mineral or flinty characteristic, and a hint of sweetness or oak depending on the winemaking style. Originating from either Bordeaux or the Loire Valley, the grape is now grown in many regions around the world. In the Loire, Sauvignon Blanc is famous for its mineral and citrusy wines from Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, while in Bordeaux, it is often blended with Semillon to make dry white wines. Sauvignon Blanc is also grown in the New World, with notable regions including California, New Zealand, and Chile. The grape has a wide range of styles, from dry and crisp to rich and complex.
