A Sauvignon blanc concentrated in aromas of ripe asparagus, blackcurrant and passion fruit. It is a medium bodied wine with a lean and zesty palate.

Sunday chicken roast with an herby dressing, served with good quality fresh asparagus and zesty lemon butter sauce. Creamy chicken or fish dishes and a summer fruit salad could also work.

Cheese: Pairs well with Feta, “barbequed/braaied” Haloumi, Mozzarella (with a basil and tomato salad) as well as a young pecorino.

Longaví means ‘snake’s head’ and is also the name of a volcanic mountain at the foot of the Andes Mountains that Julio finds particularly inspiring. The Lonagvi range is made by two legends of different continents, Julio Bouchon from Chile and David Nieuwoudt from South Africa. The Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are situated in the Leyda Valley in Chile, a mere 8 km from the cool Pacific Ocean.
