Wine character

Color: brilliant straw yellow

Smell: This Sauvignon is enticingly exotic in the glass, with multilayered fruit of mango, papaya, lime and red grapefruit, and herbal aromas reminiscent of lemon grass, lemon balm, mint and green tea. It also reveals mineral notes of flint combined with a hint of elderberry syrup

Taste: On the palate, the wine offers a fascinating interplay of juicy fruit aromas and delicate minerality creating a harmonious opulence with a long and impressive finish

Simple pairings

An exciting companion to oysters, salmon tartare and crudités of shellfish, as well as green apple risotto with crispy fried char filets, poached lobster or roast lamb in a herb crust with poached asparagus; mature goat’s cheese
