Grassnitzberg Erste Lage Sudsteiermark Sauvignon Blanc
The single-vineyard Grassnitzberg was the first vineyard owned by the Tement family and was planted in the early 1950's. It's a special site with coralline limestone soil with south-southeast facing slopes. After natural fermentation, the wine is aged for 18 months on the lees in big neutral oak casks. Bottled unfiltered.
May be enjoyed young, but after three to five years, the Grassnitzberg terroir begins to shine. Alc. 13 %. 1.2 g/l residual sugar - dry. 6.7 g acidity.
