Wines of the Month in Hanoi-Caliterra

caliterraFrom the Caliterra vineyard this Reserva Sauvignon Blanc is a high quality wine that reflects the nature of its terroir and fruit. It has a beautiful pale greenish yellow hue and a very bright Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is intensely aromatic, highlighting its great freshness and aromas of tropical fruits, mango and passion fruit. Also it stands for its citrus and mineral notes, and some hints of green pepper and tomato leaves. In the mouth it shows a pleasant acidity and a citrus feeling that make it an easy white wine to harmonize dishes. A modern and elegant wine which reflects the particular characteristics of the terroir. This is a distinctive and flavorful wine to be enjoyed on any occasion.

Food Pairing: Refreshingly herbal and grassy with some bright lime notes, it’s terrific for an aperitif or companion to European cuisine: fish, salads, seafood and shellfish. It pairs well with Spicy Vietnamese dishes & sauces too, like nuoc mam, it goes well with the spiciness of nuoc cham, with the sweetness of  shrimp and Banh Mi fillings and most dishes harmonise well with this wine which balances the palate perfectly.
