After the Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc is the finest white variety. Originally grown in Southwestern France, it generally produces a dry fresh wine, with remarkable acidity. It has a very tempting smoked touch and it features aromas of cassis, grapefruit and maracuyá. This variety is used on its own, though sometimes it is combined with the Semillón variety, thus obtaining fine white wines of excellent quality. This is a complex wine and must be made wisely.
In our country, it gives excellent results in the areas of Lujan de Cuyo, Junín and Maipú, in the Province of Mendoza.
