This is a relatively inexpensive and very good Sauvignon Blanc from Austria. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with peach and slight wild herbal notes. Light to medium bodied. Nice, mildly viscous texture. On the palate, this has lively acidity and good balance. The peach comes thru. Moderate finish. This drinks well on its own and works well with food. This was a nice complement to spicy Indian foods. Drink over the next three to five years. Screw capped.
Purchased at Interspar for Ten Euros. 12.5% abv. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is interesting with Linden leaves, gooseberry, and herbal notes. Medium bodied. On the palate, the gooseberry comes thru along with a bit of yellow grapefruit and some lemon. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is a really nice value. Drink over the next few years. Very nice on its own, this will work well with lighter foods. Great with fried appetizers.
Purchased at the local grocery store in Krems, Austria for around $10. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with a bit of hay, some lemon/lime and slight tropical fruits. Light bodied. Easy to drink. Moderate acidity. On the palate, there is some papaya and some lime. Moderate finish. This drinks well on its own and will work well with lighter foods. Drink over the next few years.
One of the truly special producers of Sauvignon Blanc from Austria. Yellow/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose is tight at first but opens to show limes, slight lemons, nice minerality and a variety of wildflowers and herbs (sort of like standing in a field). Medium bodied. Dry. On the palate, this is complex with minerality and the display or herbal notes along with some lemon qualities. A very long finish. World class. Drinking well, if young now, this seems like it could easily go another twenty years. Great on its own, this will work well with seafood but also Thai food.
A Sauvignon Blanc from Austria, this was produced using sustainable farming methods. 12.5% ABV. Silvery gold in color with a slight copper hue. Clear and bright. The nose is initially mineral driven but with a bit of air, some green pepper notes emerge. With a bit more air, some lemons come out. Finally, after almost two hours of air, there are some grassy notes along with some tropical fruit (papaya). Fascinating to observe the evolution of the nose.
