The colour of Svinjon 2019 is pale lemon with green tinges. The nose is youthful, quite intense, displaying a nice spectrum of fruity, juicy perfumes in the style of green melon, apricots, combed with slightly vegetal undertones of gooseberry and tomato leaves. Off dry on the palate, with acidities on the lower side yet plenty of freshness. There is an obvious texture in this medium bodied wine displaying a nice play between the freshness and fruitiness of Sauvignon Blanc. Finish is nice, and medium long.

Due to medium body and lovely intensity, it will go well with fresh cheese, goat cheese and ricotta, summer vegetables, white fish, shells. White meat (poultry) with light sauces. Gnocchi and pasta with sauces based on vegetables and olive oil.

Enjoyable throughout 2021 and well into 2022.
