Grape Varieties - Savagnin

Savagnin

Savagnin is an ancient grape variety, a fact underlined by its clonal diversity. Like Pinot, Savagnin vines can exhibit a great range of fruit colour, leaf form and wine characteristics, yet the plants are all genetically identical. Savagnin likely comes from north-east France and south-west Germany and was probably the result of a natural cross between two wild grapes. Due to its age it is related to many modern cultivars. It is grown as Gewurztraminer in France and Germany.
