Vineyard & Wine Region Information
The "Turmhof" Sauvignon from Tiefenbrunner is a white wine from South Tyrol that fully honors the international grapes from which it originates. The Sauvignon is announced in fact, from the first moments, with a typically varietal robe to both smell and taste, revealing a classic soul, graceful and immediately understandable. A label that you can drink now, but you can also safely keep in the cellar to allow it to age for a couple of years. It certainly will not disappoint you.
This "Turmhof" Sauvignon comes from the homonymous grapes, used in purity by the Tiefenbrunner team. The vines of this variety grow in hilly vineyards, between 400 and 700 meters above sea level, within gravelly, morainic and calcareous soils, including around the towns of Cortaccia and Aica di Fiè. The grapes, once collected during the harvest, macerate for 6-8 hours, then fermented in steel at a controlled temperature. We then proceed with the refining phase, in which 50% of the total mass refines in large oak barrels, while the remaining part ages on the fine lees in steel, for a total of 6 months.
The Tiefenbrunner Sauvignon "Turmhof" is presented in the glass with a straw yellow color, characterized by light reflections that tend more to the greenish in the nail. The set of aromas that surround the nose is typically varietal, with the classic notes of pepper and sage. Tasting is good body, with a fresh and savory soul, which envelops the palate with a sip of pleasant fluency. Tiefenbrunner, a winery that for seven generations has dedicated itself with passion and dedication to the world of wine, gives us a bottle that goes beautifully with sushi and sashimi and other fish dishes.
The 'Linticar Estate' is first mentioned 1225 AD when the wine produced was sold in markets within the local area. In 1968 Hilde and Herbert Tiefenbrunner wanted to keep up the tradition of wine making on the estate but take it in a new direction, seeking to create wines that appeal to overseas customers. In reaching out to new overseas markets, it's been important to the Tiefenbrunner family to preserve the character of the terroir and the grape varieties in their wines.
