Our review: Greenish gold in color, this wine has aromas of grass and herbs and citrus (grapefruit notably). Crisp on the palate with tart citrus flavors that develop and evolve into the finish, which has some interesting mineral characteristics.
Our rating: We served our bottle with a vegetable omelet, a delicious choice. But it could pair equally well with most seafood or shellfish dishes. A nice example of this varietal, we rate it Above Average.
Taste profile from the winemaker: "Elegant, expressive and dressed in a green-yellow shade of colour, this Sauvignon Blanc impresses with its citrus notes of grapefruit and green apple, which mingle in with herbal hints. In mouth, its freshness and balance specially stand out, along with its citric notes and pleasant mineral ending. It’s a great wine for an aperitif."
