Sauvignon Blanc Urban 2017 from Tauss
The Sauvignon vines grow at the highest point on the Hohenegg site at an altitude of 440m, watched over by Saint Urban, who gives the wine its name. Alice and Roland work everything extremely meticulously and by hand, the harvest takes place at the end of September. As expected of an Orange wine, the mash undergoes an extended maceration during fermentation, which gives the wine its golden colour and the grippy but finely integrated tannins. It is then aged for 2 years in small, new wooden barrels, which provide a delicate texture. The bouquet is extremely inviting, fine and concentrated. We find an expressive yellow fruitiness with delicate hints of herbs and honey - after a few days, aromas reminiscent of tea also develop, it is remarkable what vitality and length the wine has. We recommend a longer aeration and Burgundy glasses.
