Description

Aurora Cuvée N Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Aurora Cuvée N Sauvignon Blanc opens with a discrete nose of melon, grapefruit citrus and gooseberries. Fresh mouthfeel thanks to its crisp and vibrant acidity on the palate. Notes of yellow fruits and wet stones lead into a lingering mineral finish.

 

Fun Fact: This wine was a romantic gesture from the winemaker to his wife and as such is named after her.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit is estate grown in vineyards planted back in 2003 in the clay-like limestone terroir of Aoura at 850 metres altitude from the Mediterranean sea.

Careful selection and handpicking of the grapes in the beginning of September. Fermentation in chilled stainless steel tanks to maintain the natural fruit aromas. Filtering and bottling 4 months after harvest.
