A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay this is an intensive but elegant wine with a lively acidity and a long, mineral-edged finish. Served cool it pairs well with mixed salads, pasta and fish dishes but would work well with soft cheeses and fruits as well as delicate creamy dessert.

Terroir:: The 10 ha vineyards are located in the region of Kavarna town, less than 10 km away from the Black Sea. The climate is dominated by the constant breezes from the Black Sea which help keep the sugar levels and acidity in the grapes in balance. The soil is very rich and most work in the vineyards goes towards keeping the growth of the vines less vigorous. This is mostly done by hand, which allows consistent control of the quality of the grapes. The philosophy of Seewines is to follow entirely organic and biodynamic principles - both in the vineyards and the vinification.
The harvest of the Sauvignon Blanc takes place on the first day of September and the one of the Chardonnay - two days earlier. Fermentation is carried out separately for each variety and continues for 20 days, after which the so called batonage (rising and stirring of the fine lees) is performed. The operation leads to an improvement of the organoleptic profile of the wine. The blending to the desired final expression takes place after the ripening stage of about two months. The wine was bottled on 03/31/2020.
The colour is pale yellow and has some greenish glimpse. The aroma is elegant and discreet at first and then opens to reveal a palette of fresh sensations. The pleasant minerality is sensed even at the first sip. Tones of tropical fruits prevail at the beginning, followed by a wide range of citrus and white stone fruit flavours. The blend has a very balanced profile with medium to high acidity, and the finish is relatively long, with a dominating fresh feeling at the end.
The wine offers pleasant enjoyment when combined with various types of salads and light dishes. Cheeses are also a perfect choice to pair with - both soft and firm and ripe.
