In Germany, Sauvignon Blanc is currently very fashionable, but it lacks a recognisable profile. This is not surprising, since the Sauvignon cultivation area is spread over almost all wine regions in Germany. Moreover, some producers don't seem to know quite what to do with this potentially high-class but also sensitive variety. Grass-green, unripe screaming necks are just as unlikely to establish Germany as an origin of high-quality Sauvignons as sweetish, sour, everyday wines that are produced in some places from all available grape varieties for the sake of simplicity. Nevertheless, the variety has a chance to move out of its niche. Especially in Württemberg, where most of the Sauvignon pioneers are at home, in the Palatinate and in Rheinhessen, some committed producers are working on real top qualities that show what is possible - especially in view of the growing conditions that are changing with climate change.
