Sauvignon Blanc

The Sauvignon blanc, a French white wine grape, is constantly growing in popularity.

The Sauvignon blanc grape variety produces some of the finest wines in the world and is most commonly cultivated according to the so-called Guyot system. It requires chalky soil and an alpine-Mediterranean micro climate. The bouquet of Sauvignon blanc wines is often described as fresh and uncomplicated, though very special in taste. The cooler its place of cultivation, the higher the acidity level of Sauvignon blanc. It is usually consumed young, as it does not particularly benefit from ageing.

Typically, Sauvignon blanc has aromas of unripe gooseberries, nettle, elder and grass. When cultivated in cooler regions, it sometimes can also have an aroma of gunpowder. Sauvignon blanc wines are straw yellow with greenish reflexes. It pairs well with asparagus, fennel salad, goat’s cheese and spicy starters and can also be served as an aperitif.

Serving temperature: 10 - 12°C
