Sauvignon (2021)


  • Taste for yourself why this Sauvignon Blanc wins awards year after year! Perhaps it's the unique way in which Bortolusso grows their vines that impart that special something; the vineyard merges into the lagoon, with the sea rising up between the raised vines. The grape roots grasp the mixed sea soil, giving the wine a characteristic saline and mineral flavor.⁠ From this Sauvignon Blanc, you can expect dazzling aromas of fruit and herbs, with a delightful easy-drinking freshness.
