More information about Sauvignon Blanc - Augustin
In the glass, the Sauvignon Blanc from Augustin reveals a bright pale yellow color. If you give it some air in the glass by swirling, you can perceive a perfect balance in this white wine, because it stands out neither watery nor syrupy or liqueur-like on the walls of the glass. The bouquet of this white wine from Franconia seduces with notes of gooseberry and grapefruit. If we trace the aromatics further, green grass comes in.
The Augustin Sauvignon Blanc delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. This is a real quality wine, which clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this Frenchman enchants naturally with all dryness with the finest balance. Excellent taste does not necessarily require a lot of residual sugar. Balanced and complex, this light white wine presents itself on the palate. In the finish, this youthful white wine from the wine-growing region of Franconia finally inspires with good length. Once again, hints of grapefruit and gooseberry show.
Vinification of the Augustin Sauvignon Blanc
The basis for the balanced Sauvignon Blanc from Franconia are grapes from the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety. The Sauvignon Blanc is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, because this Frenchman breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of wines from the Old World. The fact that Sauvignon Blanc grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripening of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After the hand harvest, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Sauvignon Blanc can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for a few months.
