History: A white wine variety that is used extensively in the Charente region of South Western France, mainly for material to be distilled for Cognac. But it has a wider role in South West France where it is often used for blended wines. It is also quite popular in California and South Africa.

Regions: Adelaide Plains and Murray Darling
