Terlan ‘Quarz’ Sauvignon Blanc 150cl 2022

14% abv

Vol- 150cl

The year began with a very dry and mild winter. A cool spring slightly delayed vine budding, but the normal growth cycle was restored by a very warm and sunny May. The first vines flowered on the earliest sites in the middle of the month, and the fine weather then led to a rapid flowering process. On the higher sites, flowering was finished by the beginning of June.
Due to an exceptionally hot and dry summer, we had minion problems with fungal attack. Additionally, the lack of rainfall, in some cases, pushed the vines to their limits.
At the end of July and beginning of August rainfall and thunderstorms put an end to this issue., thus averting drought stress and related quality concerns. Subsequently, the prospect of an early harvest was also on the horizon. Harvesting began on August 24 on the earliest sites. The result was fully ripe and extremely healthy grapes with slightly reduced levels of acidity.
From the 2022 vintage we can expect balanced and harmonious fresh white wines and full-bodied, richly colored red wines. Overall, with all variables considered, the vintage is slated to be excellent for both white and red wines respectively.

Tasting Notes
Color: brilliant straw yellow
Smell: This Sauvignon is enticingly exotic in the glass, with multilayered fruit of mango, papaya, lime and red grapefruit, and herbal aromas reminiscent of lemon grass, lemon balm, mint andgreen tea. It also reveals mineral notes of flint combined with a hint of gooseberry.
Taste: On the palate, the wine offers a fascinating interplay of juicy fruit aromas and delicateminerality creating a harmonious opulence with a long and impressive finish.

The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Quarz is youthfully coy, opening with an airy bouquet that mixes crushed rocks with dried flowers, hints of petrol and nectarines. This is pure pleasure on the palate, soft and round, with juicy acidity and ripe citrus-tinged orchard fruits that swirl as salty mineral tones penetrate deeply. The 2022 finishes with outstanding length and tension, leaving hints of sour melon and a tart lemon rind tinge. The 2022 is intense and built for the cellar. Drink or hold.
