Leonardo Recanati's Italian heritage lies at the root of his passion for quality winemaking. Grapes for the Sauvignon Blanc are grown in Shomron(Samaria). This coastal plateau enjoys a warm climate and benefits from moderating influences from the Carmel Mountains and Mediterranean Sea. Hand harvested at optimal ripeness, these grapes yield a full-bodied white wine with aromas and flavours redolent of guava, pears and citrus. Fresh hay and bell pepper notes, typical of a fine Sauvignon Blanc, develop and linger in the bouquet. Outstanding when paired with fish, sushi, risotto and grilled vegetables. Winemaking Notes: The grapes arrive at the winery at night. After pressing, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, under controlled conditions at low temperature, for 12 days. This preserves the fruity aromas characteristic of this variety. The wine is not aged at all in barrels and thus we are able to maintain its freshness and clear colour, the flowery, fruity aromas and the richness of its tropical flavours.
Sauvignon Blanc from the Upper Galilee Series is an inimitable expression of the finest Galilean soil and its extraordinary cold climate.
Tasting Notes: A particularly aromatic and refreshing wine with flavours of citrus fruits, tropical fruits and flowery scents.
