When swirling the wine glass, one can perceive a first-class balance in this white wine, as it stands out on the glass walls neither watery nor syrupy or liqueur-like. Poured into a white wine glass, this white wine from the Old World shows wonderfully expressive aromas of black currant, elderberry and pear, rounded off by minerality.
The Tement Kalk & Kreide Sauvignon Blanc Südsteiermark DAC presents itself to the wine lover wonderfully dry. This white wine never shows itself coarse or meager, as one might expect from a wine premium and site wine segment. On the palate, the texture of this balanced white wine is wonderfully crisp. Due to its vital fruit acidity, the Kalk & Kreide Sauvignon Blanc Südsteiermark DAC presents itself fantastically fresh and lively on the palate.
