Attems Sauvignon Blanc 0.750 ml.
After a mild winter with little rainfall, Spring followed in similar fashion with slightly higher than seasonal average temperatures. Between May and June, the average temperatures fell and rainfall was abundant. July was the hottest and driest month, resulting in our stepping in to support the plants through irrigation work and superficial soil work. August and September were extraordinary months both for their temperature and humidity. The growing, veraison and ripening phases progressed at a steady, regular pace and the grapes harvested were perfect. The 2016 growing season will surely be long-remembered for the significant day-night temperature variations, especially from the end of August to the end of September, which also contributed to an excellent concentration of aromatic elements and a balanced grape yield per hectare. The Sauvignon grapes harvest began at the end of August and was carried out until the middle of September. The grapes harvested were beautiful and possessed a higher concentration of sugars when compared to previous years.
Venezia Giulia IGT
Attems Sauvignon Blanc boasts a quite distinctive, very complex bouquet. In colour it appears a straw yellow, typically with greenish highlights. Its palate exhibits crisp, tangy acidity and full flavours.
A sparkling gold-yellow tone with subtle greenish highlights. Lovely impressions of sage and tomato leaf lead off on the nose, closely followed by notes of late-ripened peach, melon, and white plum. Rich fruit flavours heighten its crisp, fragrant palate, whose aromas continue into an alluring, superbly balanced finish.
