Werlitsch Steiermark Ex Vero I 2015

$34

Complex and alluring, with verbena, orange blossom, apricot and baked apple flavors. Seamlessly layered, offset with firm but well-infused acidity and a quinine hint that carries through the long, textured finish. Still a bit tightly coiled at this point, so better to wait for this to unravel in the cellar. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Best from 2020 through 2027. 30 cases imported.

Summary

Primary Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is historically connected to two French winemaking regions: the Loire Valley and Bordeaux. It most likely originated in the former, which today still makes single-variety expressions to global acclaim. In Bordeaux, where the grape's roots also run centuries deep, winemakers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon and small percentages of Muscadelle for dry whites and, in the Sauternes and Barsac appellations, world-renowned botrytized dessert wines.
