Fine and creamy, this harmonious, medium-bodied white displays mouthwatering acidity and a rich vein of salinity enmeshed with flavors of baked white peach, chopped hazelnut, lemon curd and ginger-infused pastry cream. Stays fresh and focused through to the herb- and spice-laced finish. Drink now through 2030. 4,833 cases made, 200 cases imported.

The nose on the 2018 Sauvignon Quarz is intense. It lifts from the glass with notes of lemon, tangerine and crisp green apple, complicated by white smoke and savory herbs. On the palate, silky textures glide across a tense frame of minerals and acids, while maintaining its ripe fruit persona with notes of apricot and sweet inner florals, creating a sensation that mixes elegance with power. The finish is remarkably long and a bit grassy, tugging at the senses with citrus-tinged fruits, leaving a hint of honeysuckle. I’m loving the contrasting nature of this wine.
Winery
Color: brilliant straw yellow Smell: This Sauvignon is enticingly exotic in the glass, with multilayered fruit of mango, papaya, lime and red grapefruit, and herbal aromas reminiscent of lemon grass, lemon balm, mint andgreen tea. It also reveals mineral notes of flint combined with a hint of gooseberry. Taste: On the palate, the wine offers a fascinating interplay of juicy fruit aromas and delicateminerality creating a harmonious opulence with a long and impressive finish.

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is widely considered to be one of the finest varietals of white wine grapes. The green skinned fruit is notable for ripening relatively early in the year, due to the fact that it prefers milder temperatures and cannot maintain its distinctive flavors in hot climates. As such, it has become a favorite grape varietal for wineries in many very different countries around the world, where it can benefit from brisk, coastal breezes and mild early summers. Sauvignon Blanc is revered for its freshness and zesty character, and generally produces wines which are dry and very crisp on the palate. However, there are a wide variety of wines produced from this wonderfully versatile grape – with many wineries preferring to age the fermented juices in oak, or allowing malolactic fermentation to add a creamier, buttery finish to the grassy and tropical, citrus flavors it often carries.

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

There are few wine regions in Italy which generate quite as much intrigue and excitement amongst wine lovers as that of Trentino-Alto Adige. Situated in the northernmost borders of the country, Trentino-Alto Adige is a wine region quite unlike any other in Italy. With a range of influences from Germany, Lombardy and Venezia, the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige tend to be quite different from those found elsewhere in Italy, and are often considered to be the country's finest produce. The region is an alpine one, and the flavors of the Alps are often detected in Trentino-Alto Adige's finest white wines – all fresh, crystal waters and resiny aromas – whilst the red wines are generally deep and spicy, and perfect for a range of cuisines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
