Sauvignon is a semi-aromaticwhite grape variety from the Bordeaux region of France, which gets its name from the word sauvage (wild), indicating its early origins as an indigenous grape in southwestern France. It is one of the most widespread white grape varieties in the wine world, whose great adaptability has allowed it to be cultivated with excellent results in France, California, Australia, New Zealand and Italy.
Depending on the climate, wines made from Sauvignon grapes have herbaceous or fresh fruit aromas; they are rarely aged in wood, but are intended for rapid consumption.
