South Tyrolean Sauvignon DOC
Wine growing area: The grapes for this Sauvignon ripen on two different vineyards, in Kurtatsch and Montan, on the east and west slopes of the South Tyrolean Lowlands. The vines grow in the gravelly clay soils that prevail there, at an altitude of 380 – 550 metres.
Vinification: The Sauvignon grapes are harvested in crates of 220 kg and taken straight to the winery. The grapes are lightly crushed, cold macerated for several hours and then fermented at a controlled temperature of 20°C to give this wine its distinct, unmistakeable flavour.
Harvest and Yield: Harvesting of the sun-ripened Sauvignon grapes takes place in late September until early October. From the handpicked grapes we press 70 hectolitres of wine per hectare.
Reccomended with:: This Sauvignon is perfect as an aperitif and goes exceptionally well with asparagus, fish and seafood, as well as light dishes with white meat.
