Sun Goddess Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Friuli Annia|
Created by recording artist Mary J Blige in collaboration with Fantinel winery. This Northern Italian Sauvignon Blanc has hints of both lemon and lime, with a touch of Alpine forest and chalk, with a nice tender pillowy texture a fresh lively acidity. A true local expression of Sauvignon Blanc that differs from regions such as Sancerre and Bordeaux in France.
The name is meant to capture the spirit inspired by Mary’s childhood memories with her mother, and a love for the warmth and energy of the sun.
Straw-yellow with lively greenish tinges. Intensely aromatic, with tropical and spicy notes of yellow bell pepper, banana, and melon. Particularly structured with a balance between an intense acidity and a velvety smoothness with a long finish. Pair with spinach quiche, fresh summer salads, strawberries with feta, or fresh goat’s cheese like Chèvre.
