Tasting Notes

The 2016 Rellerei Winkl is a beautiful wine. In the glass it has an attractive, deep straw yellow colour.

On the nose this Sauvignon Blanc bouquet unfolds with ripe fruit aromas. I find apricot, mandarin and passion fruit. I also get hints of elderberry, nettle and mint.

The fruitiness continues on the palate.

The 2016 Winkl from Rellerei Cantina Terlan shows good structure and minerality but at the same time an aromatic finish note.

The finish is long and elegant.

Sauvignon blanc

Green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety indigenous to France’s Bordeaux region. Due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France, the grape’s name is most likely derived from the French words sauvage (“wild”) and blanc (“white”). It’s believed to be a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine grown in many wine regions around the world. The grape is also used in the popular Sauternes and Barsac dessert wines. Sauvignon blanc is grown extensively in France, Chile, Romania, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Bulgaria, and the United States’ states of Washington and California. Some Sauvignon blancs from the New World, especially those from California, are referred to as “Fumé Blanc,” a marketing term coined by Robert Mondavi to refer to Pouilly-Fumé.
