Maitz - Ried Schusterberg Sauvignon blanc 2019
Producer: Maitz
Wine name: Ried Schusterberg Sauvignon blanc
Classification: Südsteiermark DAC
ABV: 12.5

A brilliantly nuanced wine, which opens with a delicate nose showing a lemon zest, candied fruit chunks and herbs, but then broadens out into a magically silken palate. The concentrated, supple and persistent fruit core feels like it has been subtly amplified with a bit of lees ageing, and is nicely offset by bright acidity and a lifted, slightly spicy note.
A wine that is broachable now but deserves longer ageing.
