STURM Sauvignon

Sauvignon

Structure and balance. No compromises: either you love it or you hate it.

It has a strong character and does not deal with half-measures. Alluring by definition. While you are still appreciating its structure, the brilliance of the wine has become its depth. If it were an animal it would be a temptation snake. Sauvignon can easily allure you: the complexity of the aromatic features, persistent hints of elderberry combined with herbaceous aromas. Tomato leaves and nettles give way to a tropical finish: mango and pineapple. This wine has made our company well recognised abroad!

Star sign: Scorpio. Favourite colour: green.
