The Sauvignon Blanc Raif by Castelfeder shines in the glass with a bright yellow-green color. In the nose of this magnificent white wine from South Tyrol, expressive aromas of gooseberry, fresh figs and elderflowers unfold - accompanied by subtle hints of nettle.
On the palate, Castelfeder Raif presents itself as a wonderfully juicy and fruity Italian white wine with a harmonious and at the same time energetic character, which is perfectly expressed in its mineral acidity. The gentle finale is accompanied by fine floral nuances.
Vinification of Raif Sauvignon by Castelfeder
The grapes for this South Tyrolean white wine classic come from selected vineyards in the South Tyrolean lowlands, where Castelfeder has planted on sandy gravel soils with a density of 5,000 – 7,500 sticks per hectare. After hand-picking the grapes from the 15 to 20-year-old Sauvignon Blanc grapes, they are mashed in and subjected to cold maceration for 12 hours in order to extract particularly many aromas from the skins. After gentle pressing, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in a stainless steel tank, followed by a six-month maturation of the Raif Sauvignon Blanc on the fine yeast.
