Sauvignon Blanc South tyrol Alto Adige
A.A. Sauvignon Blanc "Mervin"
Some of the pioneering wine makers on the sun-kissed east-facing slopes 500 m above sea level around Lebenberg Castle, which overlooks the village of Cermes, discovered early on how to plant vines from the primitive rock of France. The credo was, and still remains: “only the best Sauvignon Blanc clones in the best locations with low yields”. Morning sunshine, downslope winds, plus a shale and quartz-rich soil provide the ideal conditions for a minerally, delicate and fiery white wine with a pleasing acidity structure. The unique palate feel is rounded off by a discreet hint of wood.Buy Now
