Sauvignon Blanc Witscheiner Herrenberg 2015 Riedenwein

6,6 g/l acidity TA 14,0 % ABV 0,75 l size 2017-2027+ best enjoyed 1,1 g/l residual sugar Cork cap 50 years aged vines

A wine with incredible expressiveness. Lots of Sauvignon Blanc from the start, cumin seeds, fennel, brown bread crust, along with lush and juicy cassis notes. A scent of white caramel but also refreshing pineapple mint. The cool flavour continues on the palate, with air and some temperature reminiscent of fully ripe peach. Muscular and medium-bodied in the mouth, along with salty components, and again black currant. Savoury and eternal on the palate, excellent aging potential! (Arno Bergler – WeinErleben)
