This Sauvignon Blanc glows with a clear, golden yellow colour in our glass. The texture is dense as the swirl calms down quickly. We notice slowly creeping tears along the walls.
Its bouquet is alluring, intense with aromas of papaya, mango, ripe pineapple, dried yellow roses and acacia, as well as honey, candied lemons, tangerine, vanilla, anise, butter dough, thyme and a slight note of white pepper.
The taste is intense, it has an oily feel, but at the same time, it refreshes us and leaves a pleasant mineral salinity on the palate. Perceptions of ripe tropical fruit, sweet spices, and a slight caramel note are detected. This Sauvignon boasts a complex structure and an intense, long-lasting, elegant taste.
