Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc + Morillon (Chardonnay)
Region: Styria, Austria
Herbaceous, Juicy, and Mineral
The second in the Ex Vero series, this Sauvignon + Chardonnay blend comes from vines planted on higher parcels where the soil is less dense and contains less nutrients. The poorer soils here retain less water which controls the vigour of the vines and forces the roots to bury deeper into the earth, yielding fruit with more complexity and finesse. The fruit is hand harvested, spontaneously fermented in stainless steel, and aged for two years in large 3 year old oak barrels.
