Weingut Gross, Südsteiermark Sauvignon Blanc Ratscher, 2016

$25.19 $27.99
The Gross family have been the stalwarts of Styrian fine wine for generations. Sauvignon Blanc is one of the world’s most noble white grapes, but its strong features require a deft touch to keep it poised and precise, rather than brassy or obvious. Gross’ extraordinary iterations walk this tightrope with ease; they balance subtle exoticism with pinpoint lucidity and never look down. The days of Sancerre for this quality at under $30 are long gone. There is a playful, lithe texture that shifts into focus with oyster shell minerality penetrating the white pineapple, green apple and a touch of peach. A great farmer tamed the harsh pyrazines into tarragon and aloe with just enough funk to let you know this is still Sauvignon Blanc.
