REFLEXION- Lage Lissen Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Winery Bioweingut Johannes Zillinger

Region Niederösterreich, Austria

Grapes Sauvignon Blanc 100%
ProfileAromatic, but also a little extra color and texture due to the aging on skins and in barrel. Ripe citrus, grass, and herbal notes dominate.
Grape GrowingThese grapes have been growing on a north-facing slope for 40 years, with the entirety of its life having been under organic, and later biodynamic practices. Pesticides have never been used on this soil. The grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted for quality.
WinemakingThe grapes are vinified in three different ways. 25% was whole bunch fermented in Georgian qvevri (clay amphorae buried underground) for structure. 25% was direct pressed for elegance and acidity into stainless steel. The remaining 50% was short-macerated on the skins and then aged in large neutral barrels for fruit and body. All of the juice has been aged on their lees the whole time.
More About the WineSauvignon Blanc is one of Johannes's favorite grapes.
