In the glass, the Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc from the Schreckbichl winery reveals a dense light yellow color. If you give it a little air by swirling, this white wine reveals a high viscosity, which can be seen in clear stained glass windows at the edge of the glass. Poured into a white wine goblet, this white wine from the Old World reveals wonderfully fragrant and complex aromas of pineapple, papaya, honeysuckle and lime, rounded off by juniper, lovage and oak wood, which are contributed by the barrel ageing.
The Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc from Kellerei Schreckbichl is just right for all wine drinkers who like as little residual sugar in their wine as possible. However, it is never barren or brittle, as you would expect from a top-quality wine. The texture of this powerful white wine is wonderfully dense on the palate. Thanks to its vital fruit acidity, the Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this white wine from the Trentino-Alto Adige wine-growing region is convincing with a good aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes from the soils dominated by limestone and sand.
Vinification of the Schreckbichl Winery Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc
The powerful Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc from Italy is a single-varietal wine made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety. The vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on sand and limestone soils in Trentino-Alto Adige. The Lafóa Sauvignon Blanc is an Old World wine through and through, as this Italian wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The berries for this white wine from Italy are picked exclusively by hand when they are perfectly ripe. After harvesting, the grapes are quickly taken to the winery. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and small wooden barrels at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by maturation for several months in oak barriques.
