Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular wine grapes in the world. It's one of the "Noble 6" or "Big 6" grapes, which are used to make about 80% of the wines in the world. (More about those here.) It's also considered an "International Variety," which means that it is grown all around the world, and it displays it's own natural characteristics as well as the terroir of wherever it's growing. Another fun fact: it is one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon. (Cabernet Franc is the other parent.)
Here is your official Sauvignon Blanc Cheat Sheet! This covers the typical wine style, aromas/flavors, and primary growing regions around the world. (It's grown in other places of course, but these are the big ones.) Use this to get to know a new grape, or to find new regions to taste from! (click to see a bigger version)
