Sauvignon Blanc is known for its wide spectrum of aromas. Hardly any other viticultural region puts it to equally full use.
Sauvignon Blanc is by no means a textbook grape. It is just as well enjoyed as a thirst-quenching fruity wine in bars and bistros as the subject of a wine philosopher’s talk with a focus on terroir. Soil, microclimate, and the geographical aspect of each vineyard, all determine the style of Sauvignon Blanc. Steeply sloping rows of grapevines that push their roots deep into the rock will of course yield other wine types than more humus-rich sites. Südsteiermark with its highly diverse site conditions is ideal for capturing the full spectrum of this variety. In the moderate climate of Südsteiermark, Sauvignon Blanc shows mature aromas paired with a comparably low alcohol content.
Here at Gross, Sauvignon Blanc is given very special attention. Around 50 percent of our wines are made from this variety.
