The most internationally renowned aromatic white variety. Due to its rich aromatic dynamic this grape is considered irreplaceable and has won the title of “well-travelled”. It is cultivated world-wide and has proven to be adaptable as a variety, earning the “cosmopolitan” denomination it deserves. The wine wrought from Sauvignon Blanc has a pleasant aroma and taste, refreshing acidity and an aromatic bouquet of grapefruit, melon and exotic fruit. It is to be found in varying
vestiges, depending on the area in which it is cultivated, and the vinificationprocesses used.
