Vintage Description

A dry winter and an initially cold month of March were followed by above-average temperatures in spring, favouring early bud break and premature flowering. From mid-May to early June the weather was mostly rainy and wet. During the following ripening stage rainfall was evenly distributed and only a few hot days made for short periods of drought. Throughout the summer the nights were refreshingly cool. Harvest began in early September and until mid-October it was repeatedly interrupted by single days of rain, luckily followed by longer periods of sun. The white wines are crispy and fresh and have an intense olfactory appeal. Finesse and elegance characterise the red wines, which already hint at a great aging potential.

  • Yield: 70 hl/Hectare

Winemaking

The grapes for this wine were gently pressed off to steel tanks immediately after harvest. The must was allowed to ferment at controlled temperature (19 ° C) without malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

greenish-yellow colour

It is a fine white wine, slightly aromatic intensely floral with a bouquet of elderflower and nettle, and spicy notes of paprika and
green gooseberries. Its freshness and intense flavour can be surprising.

Enjoyable as an aperitif and delicious with tasty appetisers. This Sauvignon also pairs well with asparagus, fish, seafood and poultry.
