Simcic 0001 Selekcija Sauvignon blanc

Wine description

An intense golden colour invites you to discover rich aromas and a well-developed body. Slow ageing in the cask draws out complex notes ranging from sage to paprika, from wild flowers to tobacco and leather: all rounded off in a long aftertaste.

With food

Goes well with delicate first courses, fish and shellfish, seasoned goat cheeses and cream cheese.

Suitable for drinking, with an excellent ageing potential, at least ten years.
