2017 Lahn Sauvignon St. Michael-Eppan
This striking grape variety, which has a strong aroma, has been increasingly cultivated in the Überetsch area since the 1980s. The stony limstone gravel and cool fall winds at the foot of the Mendel Massif produce a lively and expressive Sauvignon from the Lahn Vineyards. With refreshing acidity, delicate minerality, the Lahn Sauvignon really makes a splash as a trendy white.
Colour: Bright with a slightly green shimmer
Nose: Aromas of pineapple, elderberry, gooseberry and honey
Palate: Mineral, refreshing and balanced
Pairing Recommendations: The asparagus wine in South Tyrol also pairs nicely with light Asian cuisine such as sushi or Thai chicken skewers with peanut sauce (satay) in addition to Alpine delicacies such as quail breast with chanterelle mushroom tartare.
