Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc 100%
Alcohol Content: 14%
Unit Quantity: 750 ml
Sauvignon 'Quarz' is an intense white wine from Trentino Alto-Adige, a region in northern Italy. Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature and aging on the lees for nine months partly in big wooden barrels (50%) and partly in stainless steel tanks (50%); blending three months before bottling.
Sauvignon 'Quarz' by Cantina Terlano has a brilliant straw yellow colour. 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 and green tea. It also reveals mineral notes of flint combined with a hint of elderberry syrup. On the palate, the wine offers a fascinating interplay of juicy fruit aromas and delicate minerality creating a harmonious opulence with a long and impressive finish.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Sauvignon 'Quarz' by Cantina Terlano is with oysters, salmon tartare and crudités of shellfish, as well as green apple risotto with crispy fried char fillets, poached lobster or roast lamb in a herb crust with poached asparagus; mature goat’s cheese.
