Ritual was created as an elegant, yet approachable interpretation of Sauvignon Blanc. Only the finest estate-grown fruit from vineyard blocks known to produce intense fruit flavors and higher acidity are chosen for this wine.
The resulting wine is medium-bodied, featuring a rounder, more textural mouth feel with balanced acidity. Intense flavors of ripe tropical fruit mingle with hints of citrus in structured complexity from 5 months of French oak aging. The experience ends with a long, smooth finish.
"Veramonte's first high-end Ritual Sauvignon is a big success. The nose is mellow, refined and minerally as opposed to pungent and feline. The feel is fresh, clean as a razor, and easygoing, with lime, nectarine and passion fruit flavors. Long and lightly green on the classy finish."
"The Veramonte vineyards are in the northeastern corner of Casablanca, where the coastal influence is relatively limited. The ripeness brings tropical fruit to mind, framed by fine acidity. Serve it well chilled with grilled grouper."
Wine & Spirits
Very pleasant without the grassiness of some Sauvignon Blancs --- more like a crisp dry French version but at a reasonable price for a quaffing wine with fish.
