Sauvignon

Sauvignon

The wine is crystalline with intense golden yellow colour, playful in the glass. Its long-lasting bouquet is dominated by minerality and soft honeyed wild flowers. The sensations from the nose repeat themselves in the mouth; minerality prevails, we can feel the notes of wood. Fresh wine with a long clean aftertaste. It's similar in style to the French Sauvignon from the Loire Valley. It's harmonious thus it's best served with structured vegetable dishes, asparagus, shrimp and truffle dishes.
