Movia Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sauvignon produced in Slovenian winegrowing regions develops a strong bouquet with distinct notes of bell peppers, hay and elderflower. Plant selection and differences in the mineral content of soils have developed two distinct types of this wine: Sauvignons from the Podravje region exhibit a prevalent elderflower perfume, while the Primorska wines give greater emphasis to hay notes. Oenologists cannot agree whether this is merely a result of different environments or a true variation, though a few successful transplants of the 'elderflower' Sauvignon to the Primorska region would warrant the latter." -Winery

Movia wine estate has been in the Kristančič family since 1820. The main part of the business is based out of Ceglo, with vineyards straddling the territory between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). For this reason, Movia wines use grapes and techniques sourced from both countries, reflecting the best of their terroir and traditions. Their younger wines are found in the Vila Marija range, while older wines are found in the black label Movia range, which also includes dessert styles. In addition, they produce sparkling wines and grappa.  Read less
