Sauvignon Blanc Opoka


Opoka Sauvignon Blanc 2017 detajl vina

Wine description

Yellow, with a cast of gold, and mineral fragrances. The bouquet is delicate (reminiscent of peach, ripe pear, grapefruit), and it also has flowery and herbaceous (pepper, tomato leaves, basil, Mediterranean herbs) to leathery sensations. Elegant, pleasant, persistent and intense aftertaste. 

With food

We recommend combinig it with white meat, fresh goat cheese, fish carpaccio, and vegetable dishes (pasta with basil); it is ideal with raw salmon, fresh salads with herbs, and fruit salads with mint.


Suitable for drinking, with great ageing potential, over 12 years.
