Le Rive -11 from Suavia in Soave
In the end of Januari Winblogg.com held its annual jury meeting to decide Wine of the Year 2015 on our wine blog. Six enthusiastic and excited jury members tested as many fabulous wines and came to an almost unanimous result. 5/6 participants choose magically good Le Rive 2011 (one had it for second place) from the female producers of Suavia in Soave.
Can be summarized by saying that we all were totally blown away by this white wine elixir. This wine shows such perfection that it is difficult to find a counterpart in the wine world. Absolutely fabulous taste nuances of minerals in world class with yellow apples, citrus and acacia honey.
