“The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc 500 offers a deep, complex and flinty bouquet of ripe but fresh fruits, biscuits and crushed stones. Lush, fresh and elegant, with remarkable finesse and salinity as well as phenolic notes, this is a noble, elegant and balanced Sauvignon with good freshness and grip on the finish. Vinified in new and used tonneaux, this is Sauvignon between two worlds, Loire and Bordeaux, so definitely Pfalz. The wine has fine salinity on the pure finish but perhaps lacks the power and intensity and full ripeness. Tasted in May 2020. Drink 2022 to 2030.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“This has attractive, flinty aromas with lime, lemon and lemon-blossom notes. The palate has impressive layering and the oak treatment here adds clever depth and savory complexity to the long finish. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling
Tasting Note: Sauvignon Blanc 500 is a selection of the most spectacular 500l barrels. The wine is mineral and spicy with multilayered aromas from mango and passion fruit up to lime and grapefruit. Fine nuances of oak and vibrant acidity create an experience, which is seldom to be found.
