Susana Balbo Signature Brioso White Blend

Sale price£46.50


A leading light among Argentinian white blends, made with sauvignon blanc, Semillon, and Torrontes, is vivid and energetic with bright, focused acidity and lots of sliced dried-citrus and stone undertones.

It combines the exotic notes of the aromatic varieties with the seriousness and freshness of the Semillon. It has integrated spice from its time in barrels.
