Sauvignon Blanc Südsteiermark was hand-harvested from very steep hillside vineyards near Gamlitz and was vinified in stainless-steel tanks with 3-4 months of aging on its lees before bottling. The wine shows ripe stone fruit flavors while still being light, lively, and highly aromatic thanks the cooling influence of the Alps. Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with salad greens and other sharp ingredients like tomatoes and vinaigrettes. Sautéed white fish, oysters, smoked salmon, and foods flavored with fresh herbs all work well with Sauvignon Blanc. Styrian Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with charcuterie and other simple fare found in the region's Buschenschank or wine taverns.

Subtle notes of ripe lemon and nettle mingle on the nose. The palate remains resolutely light and is bright with lemon freshness, with a dry finish that closes on a herbal tisane note.

Mostly from Schloss Gamlitz, the 2017 Südsteiermark Sauvignon Blanc is clear, fresh and precise on the nose with white stone fruit and plummy aromas. This is a light, fresh but intense and fruity Sauvignon with gooseberry and kiwi flavors along with intense, juicy peach aromas. A gorgeous and stimulating South Styrian wine that was vinified in stainless steel, it finishes with delicate salinity and finesse. Bottled May 2018 and tasted in July.
