Silver Medal - Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada 2013

Uruguay is lesser known for it's white wines yet produces exceptionally fine, white wines. The Carrau family began to grow vines in Cataluña, Spain moving to Uruguay in the 1930s to continue this tradition. Aromatic notes of passionfruit and grapefruit are typical of this wine. It is dry and lively on the palate - a very enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc!

Food Matching: Enjoy as an aperitif or ideal with spicy seafood or salads.
