About the wine

From a small production, artisan winery in Alto-Adige. This delightful Sauvignon Blanc from Ignaz Niedrist is very typical of it’s varietal. Herbal tones, gooseberry fruit, and a hint of apricot, carries through to the palate, which is rich and concentrated with excellent fresh acidity and very long finish.

About the wine

Minimal intervention winemaker, Ignaz Niedrist believes the wine has already been made in the vineyard, and he merely needs to guide it to its natural conclusion. The result of this minute scale production and careful attention to detail, are concentrated, complex and wondrous wines. Niedrist's impressive vineyards are located on the summit of the Cornaiano village, in the heart of Oltradige, with amazing views over the Bolzano valley. He has just five hectares of vines and he tends to them with the utmost precision and care.
