Sauvignon Blanc, “Straden”
Named after the Neumeister’s hometown of Straden, this Ortswein (village wine) exemplifies Christoph’s texturally expansive yet intricately chiseled style of Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented naturally after a two-day maceration on the skins, it spends the better part of a year on its fine lees in used oak casks between 500 and 2500 liters in capacity. Expressive in its youth but capable of significant positive development in bottle (like all of Christoph’s white wines), this has an emerald-green cast (not to be confused with under-ripeness) to its aromas and flavors, with a texture simultaneously airy and concentrated.
These are wines of terroir par excellence, and we are confident they will prove riveting and revelatory to even the staunchest Sauvignon Blanc skeptic.Learn more
