The Palaeozoic soils of the Sausaler region characterize the taste of the Sauvignons in a very unique way. Firstly, the high altitude ensures the interplay of cool winds of the Kor Alps. This adds freshness and vivacity, a herbal spice and a steely-smoky flavor to the wines.
These are very fine wines, nothing opulent, more feminine than masculine. The wines are mostly pleasantly straightforward.
You can smell lemon, cheerful and playful, red currant and white elderberry blossoms. The fruit is in no way intrusive, but is always cool and refreshing.
The flavor is full of finesse and a fresh acidity that is highly attractive and engaging. These delicate, smoky, sizzling minerals come from red shale.
Perfect with trout and root vegetables.
