Sauvignon Blanc

2017

> LOCATION

The 2017 vintage was characterized by a mild and dry winter, followed by a very sunny and warm summer, finalized by an early harvest.  As a result the vintage blessed us with wines with sophistication that beautifully balance fruit concentration, structure and depth mainly given the season’s particularly low yields. The wines of 2017 have an immense sense of purity, minerality, intensity and structure.

On the palate, citrus and herbal notes intertwine creating a refreshing, crunchy and vibrant set. A persistent and vertical wine with refreshing acidity.
