100% Sauvignon blanc
A still white wine from the Friuli region of Italy.

Punchy & irreverent. Passion fruit & amaretto.

Tasting Notes

The Sauvignon Blanc 2020 from estate Ferlat has a straw yellow colour.

On the nose it’s surprising and intense, irreverent and punchy. It hits you with an intense tropical note, with passion fruit mainly. After the first impression it uncovers other notes like amaretto, yogurt and a floral side with yellow rose.

In the mouth this Sauvignon Blanc by Ferlat is equally punchy and tropical with the same passion fruit note and a fresh almond bitter closing note.

Very intense and unique. The finish is rather long.

Sauvignon blanc

Green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety indigenous to France’s Bordeaux region. Due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France, the grape’s name is most likely derived from the French words sauvage (“wild”) and blanc (“white”). It’s believed to be a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine grown in many wine regions around the world. The grape is also used in the popular Sauternes and Barsac dessert wines. Sauvignon blanc is grown extensively in France, Chile, Romania, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Bulgaria, and the United States’ states of Washington and California. Some Sauvignon blancs from the New World, especially those from California, are referred to as “Fumé Blanc,” a marketing term coined by Robert Mondavi to refer to Pouilly-Fumé.
