About

88

Intensely green and herbal on the nose, this has penetrating flavors of gooseberry, lavender, mint and grass. This Sauvignon Blanc, which was aged for two years in French barrique, is textural, with its hints of green-tea-like tannin. — A.I.

Product Description:

"Sauvignon produced in Slovenian winegrowing regions develops a strong bouquet with distinct notes of bell peppers, hay and elderflower. Plant selection and differences in the mineral content of soils have developed two distinct types of this wine: Sauvignons from the Podravje region exhibit a prevalent elderflower perfume, while the Primorska wines give greater emphasis to hay notes. Oenologists cannot agree whether this is merely a result of different environments or a true variation, though a few successful transplants of the 'elderflower' Sauvignon to the Primorska region would warrant the latter." -Winery
