St. Michael-Eppan Sanct Valentin Sauvignon 2021
|Region||Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige|
"This has aromas of lime peel, crushed stones, grapefruit pith, green papayas, nettles and elderflowers. Fantastic texture and focus, with just the right amount of citrus crunch, combined with stony minerality. Drink now or hold." James Suckling 93 points Drink 2023+
Wild herbs, spiced citrus, peach and a hint of spearmint form an inviting bouquet as the 2020 Sauvignon Sanct Valentin blossoms in the glass. This contrasts silky textures against mineral-tinged orchard fruits and a spritz of lime to create a push and pull of savory tension. It finishes with notes of grapefruit and sour melon, while keeping the mouth watering for more. This wickedly-fresh Sauvignon keeps the energy high from start to finish.
