BARNATANYA 2007, Sauvignon blanc, Barnatanya vineyard

This wine's complex nose is not at all like the popular early harvested green Sauvignon character; you won't find a trace of grassiness or green aromas.

The ripe or slightly overripe fruit evident here is much more reminescent of a large bowl of green chutney bubbling over a slow wood fire. Tight structure, vibrant acidity, beautifully balanced by the 25g of residual sugar. Such was the splendor of our 2007 Sauvignon harvest!

I would suggest pairing this wine with a plate of ripe goat-cheeses or with a more substantial dish seasoned with oriental spices and even garnished with white fruits.
