Sauvignon – White Wine
The Sauvignon vine, along with the Chardonnay, is the most widespread and famous white grape variety in the world. It comes from the French region of Bordeaux and the name derives from the word sauvage (wild), an adjective that refers to its origins in south-western France. It is a very aromatic grape with a marked acidity that influences the climate of the place where it was grown and the degree of ripeness at the time of harvest. Our Sauvignon has an excellent acidity and a persistent scent in its being very structured.
