93 Points James Suckling
Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape variety that is believed to have originated in the LoireValley of France in the 1500s. It is characterized by green aromatics that are known as Methoxypyrazines, which are also found in its offspring Cabernet Sauvignon.
This particular Sauvignon Blanc is sleek, bone dry, and mineral driven. It pairs well with omelets, asparagus, shellfish, sushi, sashimi, salmon, tuna, chicken, salads, goat cheese, caprese sala, dishes seasoned with lots of herbs like dill, cilantro, chive, garlic, and vinaigrettes.
The villa was built in 1860, and has a fascinating history from being German headquarters during World War II to the modern winery owned by the Puiatti family. In Latin the word parens means ‘ancestors’; their wine is dedicated to those who accompany us and also when they are not with us. Villa Parens is creating new limited, refine and exclusive wines designed with simplicity and elegance to fascinate. “For the future of tradition.”
