Tasting Notes

The color is a straw yellow with light green hues, full, luminous and fresh. The nose is intense, typical, elegant and articulated. The richness of aromas highlights fruit with blackcurrant, passion fruit and white melon, flowers with Lantana, elderberry and orange blossom, spices with chili and ginger, and freshness with oregano, marjoram and mint leaves. Varietal notes of boxwood and tomato leaves blend with subtle citrus hints of lime and grapefruit. The palate is ample, fresh, rich and balanced. The perfume complexity is well preserved in the taste. Lime and sage fuse with the explosion of tropical and ripe fruit. Great freshness, pleasant savoury notes and balanced acidity. Long and progressive with mineral hints in the finish, remarkable persistence.

Food Pairing

Excellent as an aperitif, sauvignon is also an outstanding partner for asparagus, vegetable soups, legume soups and marinated fish. Best served between 54°F and 57°F.
