Movia Sauvignon Blanc 2020
A far cry from breezy & forgettable Sauvignon Blanc, Slovenian producer Movia worships the varietal. Their veneration starts with late grape harvesting, with a maximum of 2 hours between the picking and fermentation! Movia only uses natural yeast plucked from the same grapes during pre-harvesting. Fermentation completes in wooden barriques where wine matures for 18 months on its own lees and without decanting. The final step is an additional 4 months of ageing in the bottle. No sulfites or preservatives added. So what does all that care produce? A complex golden white with a strong bouquet with notes of bell pepper, hay and elderflower. Dry but ripe , the wine shows vibrant acidity as well as includes honey, gentle oak and floral notes. Ready to enjoy today, but this unusual, ageable Sauvignon Blanc will also give lots of pleasure for another decade.
