Sauvignon Blanc was introduced to Alto Adige together with Sémillon at the end of the 19th century and - unlike Sémillon - has since become firmly established in the region.

The weather conditions made 2019 a challenging year for our winegrowers. A relatively mild winter and early spring were followed by a wet and cool April and May. After the flowering of the vines, which was not until June, the weather changed and it became hot and dry. In late summer, some rain and below-average temperatures delayed the ripening of the grapes. Harvesting the healthy grapes began in early September and continued until the end of October.

– golden yellow with hints of green
– fruit reminiscent of ripe gooseberries, apples and peaches
– juicy, with elegant fruit on the palate, mineral notes and a melting finish

This wine is paired well with asparagus, onion soup, escargot, and fish dishes, and may also be enjoyed as an aperitif.

Extremely prolonged pressing of the grapes in their entirety, spontaneous fermentation of the unfiltered juice in the large casks (500 l), 10 months maturing in the wood on fine lees with bâtonnage.

East-facing slope at 500 meters above sea level at Oberplanitzing, loamy, chalky gravel with porphyry and weathered granite, providing a prominent mineral character to the site.
