(Notes for vintage 2020)

This Sauvignon Blanc lits the glass with a crystal clear, golden yellow colour. The texture is dense as the swirl calms down quickly. We notice slowly slipping tears along the walls.

 

The bouquet is alluring, intense. We perceive aromas of peach, mango, pineapple. Hints of green pepper are followed by perceptions of elderberries, dried yellow roses, including honey, candied lemon, baked brittle dough, basil and rosemary.

 

The taste is intense, the mouthfeel oily yet still it refreshes our palate leaving a pleasant mineral salinity. Perceptions of ripe tropical fruit, sweet spices are repeated, and we notice a slight caramel hint. The taste is balanced and structured. A Sauvignon Blanc that boasts a long-lasting, elegant taste.

 

Thanks to its characteristics it will go well with Asian food, various sashimi, or dishes that the masters have enriched with yuzu citrus. It will also go well with complex, haut-cuisine dishes consisting of fish or white meat.
