Green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France
Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety indigenous to France’s Bordeaux region. Due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France, the grape’s name is most likely derived from the French words sauvage (“wild”) and blanc (“white”). It’s believed to be a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine grown in many wine regions around the world. The grape is also used in the popular Sauternes and Barsac dessert wines. Sauvignon blanc is grown extensively in France, Chile, Romania, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Bulgaria, and the United States’ states of Washington and California. Some Sauvignon blancs from the New World, especially those from California, are referred to as “Fumé Blanc,” a marketing term coined by Robert Mondavi to refer to Pouilly-Fumé.Link to here... | Derived from 'Sauvignon blanc' on Wikipedia
