Tasting Notes: Not your typical Sauvignon Blanc. With 10 months skin contact, fermentation and ageing in Amphora for 1 year this S.B. has tropical notes of lychee and kiwi with slight tannins, perfect balance of acidity and minerality to be enjoyed on its own or accompanied with food. Not your typical white wine.
