Avia Sauvignon Blanc
The nose is reminiscent of pastry and vanilla with pleasant nuances of soft flower of dry hay, dry figs and a pleasant smoky nose. Barrique barrel aging enhances the taste with a full and intense flavor which harmonizes well with the gently fruity flavors. A nice balance between its acid and residual sugar components as noted.
$8.50 / Bottle $102.00 / Case
Wine from Slovenia? Before you turn up your nose you should know that the Goriška Brda winery where Avia is bottled is only 20 miles from Trieste, Italy. Surely you’ve had some delicious wines from this corner of northeastern Italy before. Across the border in the beautiful Dobrovno region the only difference you’ll notice (wine-wise that is) is the much lower price of a bottle of local wine. As far as the vines are concerned, the terroir and climate are the same as nearby Italy!
Got your attention yet? Who wouldn’t want to save some money while drinking wines that are just as good as their more well-known neighbors? Wine’s been made in Slovenia thousands of years, they’ve got as much experience as the next guy. The only thing holding Slovenian wineries back all these years has been the bitter geopolitical conflicts that have nothing to do with the quality of wine! Now is the time to discover these great values from this unknown winery!
