Sauvignon Blanc: One of the World's Most Popular Wines

Sauvignon Blanc gets its name from the grape variety of the same name native to France, which now grows on all continents in all climatic conditions. In French, the word "sauvage" means wild. Thanks to Sauvignon Blanc grapes, the brand became world-famous. This drink has the aroma of gooseberry, lemon, freshly cut grass, and tropical fruits. Its unusual taste and pleasant aftertaste give real pleasure to connoisseurs of quality alcohol.

A wine can be based either on a variety of berries with the same name or a combination of it with other species. The flavor may vary depending on the ripeness of the grapes and the region of production:
  • In New Zealand and Australia, green pepper, black currant leaf, and passion fruit scents predominate
  • In Chile and South America, this product is made with citrus and green apple flavors
  • Drinks of France take on a pronounced mineral flavor with notes of peach and melon
  • USA is famous for its acidic wines with hints of asparagus, licorice, grass, and vanilla. The product is aged in oak barrels
  • In South Africa, you can try two kinds. The first is a light, fruity one. The second is with oak
  • Italian brand features a subtle and light fruity flavor
The Sauvignon Blanc grape makes a light, refreshing drink. It is also used in combination with Semillon berries to create dessert wines.

The homeland of the Sauvignon Blanc grape is France, but the exact place of origin is still a matter of debate. Some think it is the Loire Valley, some think it is the southwest of the country and the Bordeaux region. Grapes are the result of numerous crosses with other species. Its long-standing ancestor is thought to be a wild grape from southwestern France. Another relative is called the Savanien berry. In different countries and cities, the alcohol from this variety has its own name. In the Loire Valley, it is Pouilly FumГ© and Sancerre, in the USA FumГ© Blanc, in Bordeaux Appellation Grave and Sorent. This type of berry is especially common in the regions of Cheverny, Touraine. Therefore, when buying elite alcohol, it is worth paying attention to the label. If it mentions these cities, then the product is safe to buy.

The wine of this brand has a unique production technology based on the principle of harvesting. It does not happen all at once, but in parts, at certain intervals. This is done in order to get berries of different degrees of maturity. The duration of these stages is determined by each producer. Therefore, the taste of finished products may vary. This method makes it possible to create products of different varieties. It is important to make sure that the berries are not overripe and have not lost their flavor. Fermentation conditions also differ. In France, this stage takes place at a temperature of 16-18 degrees. In other countries, it can be much lower. For alcohol made from these grapes, it does not matter how old they are. It can be consumed young, immediately after production.
