About him: from 50 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines, here is the "Auksinis", recognizable thanks to its splendid minerality followed by notes of hay, apricots, licorice root, vegetal sensations and brackish and citrus nuances. The sip is complex, intriguing, dense, powerful, with a savory minerality, lively tannins and a fine spicy return...sensations that offer an exciting experience!
