Sauvignon blanc

Native to Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, Sauvignon is used to make sweet or dry white wines with a strong perfume. But Sauvignon also exists as a gray grape variety. Sauvignon often has a lemon-gold color with green highlights. It reveals aromas of boxwood, citrus, flowers or white fruit, and when dry, is mineral. This grape variety is very common in the Nordic countries, but is grown all over the world.
