Vintage:
Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2017
Our Sauvignon Blanc grows in the north-western part of the Steinhaus vineyard. The soil mainly consists of mica shist and quartz, traversed by gneiss and dark amphibolites. The small vineyard is located at about 350 m above sea level, one of the coolest spots of the Kamptal. Here the variety shows a particularly juicy fruit-character that dominates the wine. Before bottling, our Reserve spends at least two winters on the lees.
