2020 Terlano Winkl Sauvignon Blanc
“Winkl is a juicy, delicately fruity, minerally Sauvignon Blanc, which has been produced as a varietal wine since 1956. In the Terlano DOC area, this grape variety has long been grown with excellent results in the oldest vineyards.” Rudi Kofler
Cantina Terlano was founded in 1893 in the Dolomite Mountains in the foothills of the Alps. Terlano's distinctive location and extraordinary terroir are key to the development of their singular wines. Situated in a sheltered hollow, Terlano benefits from an ideal south‐facing exposure. In the vineyard, red porphyric rocks with high mineral content retain the day's warmth, while the porous soil creates an environment with just enough moisture for the roots to extend deeper into this mineral-rich soil. In combination with cool evening temperatures, these factors create wines of incredible depth and potential for aging.
Cantina Terlano has grown into one of the leading wine growers' cooperatives with a current membership of 143 growers farming a total area of 165 hectares. Terlano ensures the highest standards of quality by compensating growers for the quality of their grapes not the quantity. The emphasis in the vineyard is on reducing yield in favor of producing more concentrated fruit.
Some informative notes:
Color: intensive straw yellow with a delicate green shimmer
Smell: Ripe fruit aromas of apricot, mandarin and passion fruit mingle with elements of elderberry, gooseberry and mint.
Taste: The fruitiness continues on the palate in combination with a fine acidity. The wine scores with a good structure and a minerally but at the same time aromatic finish.
