Movia Sauvignon 2018
Movia Sauvignon is more of a cool guy who likes to take things easy, taking its time to reveal itself.
Medium deep golden colour. You’d never think this is a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Strong bouquet with distinct notes of bell peppers, hay and elderflower. The dry palate has a touch of sweetness, a vibrant acidity and sublime oily texture. Persistent and diverse flavours from orange citrus and tropical melon to ripe apple, honey and gentle oak. Smooth, rich and fruity with a dry mineral finish. Plant selection and differences in the mineral content of soils have developed two distinct types of this wine. Oenologists cannot agree whether this is merely a result of different environments or a true variation.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. From an average of 30 years of vine age. The harvesting of the grapes is done manually from their vineyard, which practices organic cultivation. Late grape harvesting, hand-picked with a short period between the picking and fermentation (max. 2 hours). Beginning of fermentation in large fermentation tanks with natural yeast picked out from the same grapes harvested during pre-harvesting (5 %). Fermentation begins spontaneously in large steel fermentation tanks with indigenous yeasts. Second fermentation occurs in 220 litre French oak barriques on fine lees. Finally nmaturing for 18 months in French oak barriques and 4 months in bottles laid on their side. No fining, no filtering, low sulphites.
