Sauvignon Blanc Witscheiner Herrenberg 2017 Riedenwein

5,5 g/l acidity TA 14,5 % ABV 0,75 l size 2019 – 2029+ best enjoyed 1,7 g/l residual sugar Cork cap 5,4 years aged vines

Reminiscent of chalk, bergamot and split peaches. Multi-layered attack through finely interwoven aromas on the nose. With air or by aerating in a white wine carafe, nutmeg spice and more yellow fruit appear. No aroma stands out, the sum of nuances make the composition here. Clearly juicy Sauvignon Blanc aromas. Powerful and playful on the palate. Grapefruit freshness keeps this Witscheiner Herrenberg focused and taut. Underpinned by gooseberry ragout & currant cream. Never-ending finish. A wine marked by origin and history. Great potential for maturation. (Thomas Schabl, Dipl. Sommelier)
