"Very impressive depth and elegance for a village wine. I could linger over the fine lemon-blossom and spring-meadow aromas for a long time, and I love the way the fine tannins support all of this without ever being a touch dominant.

"Very impressive depth and elegance for a village wine. I could linger over the fine lemon-blossom and spring-meadow aromas for a long time, and I love the way the fine tannins support all of this without ever being a touch dominant. That gives the wine a texture like raw silk through the long finish. From 6 different vineyard parcels in the sites of Steinbach and Welle, with vines up to 30 years old, all with organically grown grapes. Vinified in large, old oak and stainless steel. Drink or hold. Glass stopper.

This multi-layered Sauvignon Blanc shows a lot of fruit and spicy flavors in the nose, containing ripe berries like gooseberry and cassis, peppers and passion fruit highlighted with delicate flavors of lime and lemon grass. On the palate papaya and avocado accompanied by green pepper and verbena. An animating wine with elegant acidity structure, multifaceted flavors and good freshness.
About Lackner-Tinnacher
The Lackner-Tinnacher estate is nestled between vineyards and orchards on a chain of hills in Steinbach near the municipality of Gamlitz. The vines have been cultivated here for centuries; in fact, four of the estate's vineyards were described in detail in the Josephine land register of 1778. Today, Katharina Tinnacher and her family cultivate 27 hectares of vineyard, which thrive at the ideal elevation of 400–500 meters on the most promising steep slopes of Southern Styria.

Concentrating on grapes best suited to the region, they grow Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller, Welschriesling and the "white Burgundian varieties"--Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Katharina places her central focus on the vines and on a way of working with them that remains close to nature, including sustainable cultivation of the soil according to the precepts of organic viticulture. Here the vineyards are surrounded by meadows, orchards and forests in a protected microclimate. All of the estate's grapes are grown in their own vineyards. These vineyards feature a wide variety of geological conditions, and Katharina seeks to express this in her winemaking to highlight the differences between the sites.
