Savagnin

Characteristic, small-berried vine of the Jura, responsible most notably for the sherry-like vin jaune (although it can theoretically make up some of the blend of any white Jura wine). Its apogee is Château-Chalon and Savagnin wine is famous for its aroma and ability to age. Planted in Australia in the early years of this century when mistaken for Albariño. Savagnin Blanc is also known as Traminer; while the aromatic, pink-berried version Savagnin Rose Aromatique is Gewurztraminer. In Switzerland small quantities of Savagnin Blanc are grown as Haiden or Heida.
