The nose on this is phenomenal, with intense sliced peaches. Full body and loads of fruit with a long flavorful finish. Drink now.
Wine & Spirits
This grows on a terrace above the north bank of the Isonzo river, where the soils are well-drained gravel and clay. The temperate 2009 vintage created a robust young sauvignon, structured as a grand and age-worthy wine. The texture is supple, carrying pungent fruit scents of pear and nectarine; the finish meshes that fruit with an earthier note. Delicious with veal schnitzel now or after several years in the cellar.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Piere Sauvignon literally explodes with tons of energy and focus. Pears, green apples, white peaches, mint and sage are some of the notes that flow from this mid-weight, nicely delineated Sauvignon. Smoke, ash and slate develop later, adding further complexity to the generous, inviting finish. (AG)
Fresh and lightly juicy, this offers flavors of green melon, pink grapefruit, spice and quince. Well-balanced, with a stone-tinged finish.
