Sauvignon (Sauvignon blanc, Sylvaner musqué) is a variety originating in France, where they know many different Sauvignons. Those from the Loire Valley and Bordeaux or Sauternes, which is renowned for sweet wines, are very famous. It also thrives in California, Australia and Eastern Europe. Its characteristic aroma is that of hay or elderberry, peppers or green tomatoes and melons. In Slovenia, we can find it in all three vine-growing regions. It was also called Sylvaner musqué, as its aroma can also include notes of nutmeg.
