Sensory profile The vision of this wine presages an adventure through crisp, luscious fruit in a dialogue of joyous, aphrodisiacal components. A self- confident, luminous shaft of straw yellow shines out from the glass. The initial whiff leaves one immediately inebriated by a wave, stylish yet forceful, of tropical and floral essences that continue unabated. A fruit-laden carpet of clean-contoured citron, passion fruit, bergamot, and pineapple juice support luscious, fragrant effusions of gardenia and lantana flowers. After a lengthy pause for breathing, the bouquet releases the more classic nuances that carry us into sun-drenched gardens filled with tomato leaf and yellow bell peppers, perfectly-ripe peaches, and elderflower blossoms. And we are seamlessly into the palate, where these aromatic experiences push far into the oral cavity, where they finally yield to a warm, crisply dry, and pleasantly bitterish finale. Spiritous, warm, and heady, it imperiously invites the senses to a committed round of exploration. This integrated aromatic amalgam is sustained by a complex of mineral essences eloquently expressive of the wine’s terroir and constitutive of the palate’s seductive weight.


Pairings Here is a Sauvignon Blanc of impressive density and intenseness, fully capable of accompanying to regal perfection the most complex and formal dishes.
