Tasting notes

Brilliant and pure pale straw-yellow color. 42/25 Sauvignon Blanc reveals gorgeous aromas of freshly cut grass, green apple and juicy lemon, elegantly surrounded by elderflower and hints of fresh nettle. 

In the mouth it is fresh, herbaceous-fruity, with fine notes of elderberry, citrus and green apple. Wine with a light body, excellent balance, medium-lasting finish and mineral aftertaste. Tasted in May 2022.

Serving and food pairing

Excellent as an aperitif. Great match for poultry, fish, seafood, vegetables, spicy foods. Pair with Asian cuisine and sushi; pea soup and dishes garnished with pea puree; vegetable meatballs with milk sauce; fresh green salads; fish appetizers; pasta with pesto and vegetables; asparagus dishes; spring rolls or spicy pastries. 

Serve at 9-11°С, in Sauvignon Blanc glass (tall stem, slender bowl, narrow rim) or regular White wine glass.
