Viticulture and Vinification

Good Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by zesty green flavours combined with tropical fruit notes. This is highlighted by the way the grapes are harvested for this wine. A part of the vineyard is harvested early for the crisp green style, a further part at mid maturity for a balanced component and then a final section is held until later to develop tropical/passionfruit characters to finish the blend. In the winery the processing is simple. Some parts are given some skin contact before pressing to extract more richness from the grape skins. All the parts are fermented cool in stainless steel. Early bottling helps to seal in the freshness.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow with greenish tints, good limpidity. Freshness with vegetable accents, black locust flowers, ripened fruits and melon, on a mineral background. Minerality confirmed by taste, sustained by good acidity, citric tint (lime), passion fruit. The well integrated alcohol sustains the structure of a wine marked by good taste dynamics and tonic notes.

We recommend this wine with:

Green cheese, ewe-cheese, fish salads, caviar salad, Caprese salad, Bulgarian salad, chicken or turkey, pasta pesto sauce, oven dishes, fish and desserts (tarts) with apricots, pears, apple pie.
