Made using the most modern white winemaking techniques—pre-fermentation cold soak maceration and temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel—this Sauvignon Blanc exhibits the classic hallmarks of the varietal. A brief period of lees aging adds roundness to the palate and balances the zesty acidity typical of Northern Italy while adding considerable length to the finish.

Tasting Notes

This beautiful and aromatic white wine is straw-yellow with green highlights, and has aromas of tropical fruits, peaches, and fragrant saffron. Nicely balanced and dry on the palate with flavors of tropical and citrus fruits underscored by a hint of mint.

Food Pairing

This Sauvignon would be a wonderful counterpoint to a buttery pasta dish like linguine with garlic butter sauce or a seafood dish like grilled halibut with pineapple chutney.
