Sauvignon is not the easiest grape variety to grow and make into wine, which makes it highly satisfying for good producers. This family run winery at the border with Slovenia has chosen a special spot for this vineyard at the foot of their main hill, where the soil is deeper and retains moisture better to insure best results.
Pairing - The grassy, bright flavours of this Sauvignon Blanc matches well the distinct, clear character of green vegetables such asparagus, swiss chard, kale and spinach.
Great also with pesto.
Tasting Notes -The main aromas of this wine are the classic Sauvignon notes of gooseberry, grass and citrus fruit, accompanied by hints of herbs, melon and light minerality on the palette.
