Sauvignon Blanc

deep roots

#territoriality #summer_fruit #elegance
A wine that tells the story of the terraces the grapes grow on, looking out over the valley and basking in the sun. Fresh and fruity on the palate, like the spring air; full-flavored and velvety-soft, like an elderberry syrup enhanced with the sparkle of mineral water. Completed with notes of white peach and exotic hints of the tropics.
