Weingut Tement, Südsteiermark
Sernau Sauvignon Blanc “Grosse" STK Lage, 2014
Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
The profundity of the sandy light soil type allows very fast growth through the vine roots in low-lying, water-bearing zones. On this terroir, Sauvignon Blanc usually develops vegetal, herbal aromas combined with softer fruit flavours. Besides core Sauvignon Blanc notes, this subtle "Sernau vintage" boasts deep minerality paired with vegetal flavour and radiant clarity: dried herbs, vine tomatoes, raspberry leaves and savory. Aromas of dried, pickled tomatoes on the palate, focused, mineral and with great length.
Falstaff: 94 Points, Gault Millau: 17.5 points
