Passionate Wine "Montesco - Agua de Roca" 2019

100% Sauvignon blanc
A still white wine from the Valle de Uco region of Argentina.


Firm, fresh, mineral. It promises a great evolution!

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Montesco Agua de Roca from Passionate Wine opens with franc mineral and sapid notes that really showcase a rocky mountainous terroir.

I expect it to evolve beautifully and blossom into a very complex bouquet.

Sauvignon blanc

Green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety indigenous to France’s Bordeaux region. Due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France, the grape’s name is most likely derived from the French words sauvage (“wild”) and blanc (“white”). It’s believed to be a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine grown in many wine regions around the world. The grape is also used in the popular Sauternes and Barsac dessert wines. Sauvignon blanc is grown extensively in France, Chile, Romania, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Bulgaria, and the United States’ states of Washington and California. Some Sauvignon blancs from the New World, especially those from California, are referred to as “Fumé Blanc,” a marketing term coined by Robert Mondavi to refer to Pouilly-Fumé.
