Familia Traversa, Traversa Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Montevideo, Uruguay
Tasting Note: A sauvignon blanc from Uruguay that has both persistent fruit and some cool-weather hints.
Pale-intensity lemon-green in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green apple, pear and white peach with hints of hay and forest floor.
On the palate the dry, medium-to-full-bodied sauvignon blanc has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long finish.
A sauvignon blanc with bold fruit and some notes of complexity.
Bottle Note: Since 1956, the Traversa family has a legacy of three generations nurturing vineyards in Montevideo. Using eco-friendly yet advanced methods, these wines reflect the terroir of the heartland of Uruguay’s wine growing regions. Aromas of green apples, citrus and fresh herbs. A light and totally refreshing palate. Great partner to seafood and sushi and sashimi cuts, or to simply enjoy as an aperitif.
