Sauvignon Blanc Contarini

High quality dry white wine

Vineyard location and characteristics: The vineyards are located on the hills of Buje, at 220 to 250 metres above the sea, at the location of Contarini. The ideal microclimate allows for the growing of grapes that in their maturing retain the amount of acidity required for a fruity and well-balanced wine, while the mineral white soil sustains the smoothness with its exceptional mineral notes.

Vinification and maturing: A part of the must is subjected to the process of crio-maceration and then lightly pressed after which it is left to ferment at temperatures from 14 to 16 °C. With the help of fine lees, the wine is left to mature in stainless steel barrels until spring when it’s bottled.

Color: Straw yellow

Bouquet: Green tomato leaves, white peach and slight notes of white pepper and spice herbs

Taste: The scent allows the notes to have an encore on the palate, while the leafiness is jointed in an ideal balance with notes of ripe fruit, producing a finely peppery and elegant finish

Gastronomic recommendation: Wide selection of seafood, clams, white fish and seafood with spice herbs, dishes with wild asparagus, vegetable terrine with spices and prawns, exotic Asian dishes
