The Winkl Sauvignon Alto Adige/Südtiroler Terlan DOC from Cantina Terlan shines in an intense straw yellow with a delicate green shimmer in the glass. The bouquet is very fruity with aromas of apricots, mandarins and passion fruit, accompanied by elderflower, nettle and mint.
The fruity impression can also be appreciated on the palate and is accompanied by a fine acidity, full-bodied and tasty. This South Tyrolean white wine is particularly convincing due to its elegant texture. The long finish is characterized by a mineral and at the same time aromatic aftertaste.
