Product Description

Calvet Reserve blanc is made with selected grapes harvested optimum ripness from vineyards chosen for their aromatic potential and the healthy grape growing conditions. I use innovative wine making techniques to ensure the maximum extraction of fruit and maintain freshness. This wine is blended before early bottling to keep the freshness. I advised you to taste this bottle chilled (10-12ºC) to enjoy its floral and fruity aromas (passion fruit, grapefruit, lychee) and to emphasize its fresh and aromatic finish. Calvet Reserve blanc is the perfect match with grilled fish, shellfish and smoked salmon. Enjoy!

Absolutely delicious sauvignon blanc

The only problem with this wine is it is very difficult to just have one glass! I love sauvignon blanc and this one is lovely, crisp, fresh and light and not a bad price.
