Sauvignonasse Classic L

Wine description

Sauvignonasse is the new denomination for the former Furlanski tokaj ("Tocai Friulano"), which was renounced by Slovene wine producers in 2005 due to the victory of the Hungarians over other users of the name. Made from very mature grapes. Colour is yellow, with a shade of gold. It has an extremely full-bodied, rich and long-lasting aroma. After several minutes, a complex aroma develops, ranging from a herbal note to the fragrance of dried flowers. A touch of minerality can also be discerned. The taste is initially peachy, then fruity. It is rich and full-bodied. There is a pleasant aftertaste of ripe, bitter almonds.

Brda Classic

Years of experience have shown that white wines produced in this way, with their expressive structure, which is not lost after maturing in the bottle for some years, should gain in expressive elegance laced with a marvellously pleasant minerality.
