Sauvignon Blanc Südsteiermark DAC 2019 Gebietswein

6,8 G/L acidity TA 1,2 g/l residual sugar screw cap 0,75 l size 11,5 % ABV

EUR 12.90 incl. VAT

From the beginning a lot of wine in the glass. Field cucumber, diced peppers and bunches of herbs flow through the nose. After a short time also some star fruit, precise aromas of savory and kumquat. On the palate ripe yellow fruits and again notes of herbs and citrus fruit. A balanced acidity runs through the whole wine and plays with the fruit melt. Light-footed and very expressive. A vinophilic mirror of southern Styria.

(Thomas Schabl, certified sommelier)
