"Flora" Sauvignon Alto Adige DOC 2019 - Girlan

Only the best grapes, from the most suitable areas, end up in the bottle of this Sauvignon by Cantina Girlan. The production area coincides with the municipalities of Cornaiano, Monticolo and Appiano Monte, at 500 metres above sea level. A mix of soils and exposures that allows the Sauvignon grape, worked in purity, to give excellent results and give the wine a unique character. Brief maceration and pressing of whole bunches. Then fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats and refinement on fine lees, again in steel, and in large oak casks for 8 months. Straw yellow in colour, the nose is striking for its intense aroma of nettle and elderflower. In the mouth it is fresh and lively but well balanced thanks to a certain corpulence. Excellent with fish dishes, it also goes well with white meat dishes.

23 must be a lucky number. At least in South Tyrol. Yes, because in 1923 the Girlan Winery was founded and, as chance would have it, it was founded by 23 winegrowers. Cabal aside, the winery is housed in a historic 16th century farmhouse. Behind these walls of ancient tradition and in the intricate corridors of the Cellar, nowadays the secrets of cutting-edge wine-making technology and the ideal conditions for aging wines are hidden. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. And wines in those cellars. Today, 200 winegrowers are involved in the Girlan project, spread over an area of approximately 220 hectares. Vineyards in the best production areas of Oltradige and Bassa Atesina, all worked with great dedication. The oenologist responsible for the creation of the wines is Gerhard Kofler, who personally takes care of the contacts with the vintners, giving his advice in the most delicate phases of the season. The result is here to try. Wines of the highest quality, divided into three distinct lines: Selections, Vineyards and Classics.

    This has subtle aromas of toasted hazelnut, citrus and grilled herb. The linear palate suggests oak, yellow-apple skin and lemon zest, alongside bright acidity. KERIN O’KEEFE
