Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc from Alto Adige opens with fragrant yellow grapefruit bouquet with hints of lemon and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic, brisk and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe yellow grapefruit with notes of mild dry minerality and lime. I also detected a hint of white pepper. The finish remains dry and its flavors and gentle acidity drift away nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc paired perfectly with our cod at Is Capriccio. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: intensive straw yellow with a delicate green shimmer Smell: Ripe fruit aromas of apricot, mandarin and passion fruit mingle with elements of elderberry, nettle and mint. Taste: The fruitiness continues on the palate in combination with a fine acidity. The wine scores with a good structure and a minerally but at the same time aromatic finish.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
