The 2017 Ried Klausen Sauvignon Blanc 1STK is super pure, precise and fresh on the nose. From Muschelkalk and calcareous sandstone soils, this Klausen is deep, stony, elegant yet concentrated and noble, with coolish fruit aromas along with herbal/vegetal (but not green) and stony notes. I would easily accept it as a top Sancerre. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, finessed and salty-piquant Sauvignon Blanc with great expression and individuality. The finish is tight, spicy and endlessly salty. So dense, tight and fresh, with notes of blackcurrants and white flowers on the mysterious and open bouquet. Highly digestible. This a great Austrian Sauvignon Blanc. ... More details

Aromas of fresh limes and herbs, as well as lemon grass and chamomile. The palate has a very fresh, crisp and dialed-in feel with lime flavor. Drink now.

green grapes

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc grapes originated in France, where they are still widely grown today and treated to a wide range of processing practices – from aging in oak barrels, blending with other varietals, and undergoing malolactic fermentation to encourage a more mellow, buttery finish. These green skinned white wine grapes are highly versatile, and are now grown in several countries around the world which have the correct climatic conditions for getting the best results from them. Generally, Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes prefer a cooler climate, as too much heat dulls the flavor present in the fruit. As such, they are generally grown in valleys and on coastal areas, where they can benefit from cooling breezes before being typically harvested early in the summer. The grapes themselves produce wines which are often very dry and crisp, yet full of a wide range of flavors including grasses, tropical fruits and citrus notes.

Country: Austria

Austria is a fascinating country when it comes to wine production, and with a wine culture that stretches back over four thousand years, it is one of the oldest viticultural centers in the world. Today, it is the Grüner Veltliner varietal grape which is the most widely grown and processed, producing elegant dry white wines, and very flavorful and aromatic sweet wines enjoyed to a great extent by local communities, and which are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve by the global wine market. Austria's eastern flatlands benefit from fertile and mineral rich soils, fed by the great river Danube, as well as the long hot summers the country enjoys with low precipitation. Today, over fifty thousand hectares of Austrian land is under vine, and even within the city limits of Vienna, high quality wine is produced and enjoyed.
