Viu Manent Secreto Sauvignon Blanc 2014

IMG_0921

At 85% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, this wine technically qualifies as a single varietal by every country and regional standard. Accordingly, the flavors and aromas are every bit an archetypal Sauvignon Blanc, but aside from the characteristic crisp acidity and herbal aromas, what makes this wine unique is the vintner’s desire to keep the identity of the grapes that comprise the other 15% a mystery. Hence, the name Secreto. Are the grapes all Sauvignon Blanc or are they blended with Semillon or another low acid white variety? We may never know, but the speculation is fun. Tropical and citrus fruits drift to the nose followed by fresh elegant flowery notes dancing on the palate and a hint of wet rocks and minerality lingering on the extended finish. Enjoy this wine by itself on a warm Florida afternoon or pair it with hummus, salads and light seafood dishes.

Price: $16.99
