Weingut Von Winning Sauvignon Blanc 500, 2018, Pfalz, Germany
£59.25 (inc VAT)
Something truly rare: oak-fermented German Sauvignon Blanc.
Oak-fermented Sauvignon Blanc is rare, German Sauvignon Blanc is even rarer, so this is something truly unique. Spontaneously-fermented in a selection of spectacular 500 litre wooden barrels, this wine electrifies your taste buds with its racy, mineralised feeling and juicy aromas of elderberries, elderflower, ripe gooseberries and roasted hazelnuts.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
