Complex & Silky

Hans Herzog is a unique story – A man that is a true vigneron and in sole control of the winemaking and viticulture of so many different grape varieties within his 11.5 hectare vineyard. A rare individual who lives and breathes his estate, releasing only the highest quality wines, which are 100% handcrafted from his own vines.

His is a true artisan wine estate where a holistic approach to farming is not just a phrase but a way of life. Absolutely everything is done by Hans himself with the help of equally passionate people including his wife, confidante and collaborator Therese, who supports him in his relentless drive for quality and perfection.

This completely dry wine is explosively rich and impressively textured with the elegance and refinement of a stately Sauvignon Blanc. It brings intense minerality and texture from the gravelly soils to match the exotic fruit aromas. Ripe candied peel, elderflower blossom, fresh quince and melon on the nose. The oak is successfully integrated in the creamy texture. Enormous length stimulates the palate and keeps the mouth watering throughout. Great purity, leaving a refreshing but weighted mouth with great vigour and persistence from start to finish.

A perfect pairing for seared scallops with frisee and fennel salad, butter poached lobster or a spring salad with herbed goat cheese.

A rich golden colour. Lush, intense and quite complex sauvignon blanc with toast, ginger, honey and subtle oyster-shell and mineral characters. Quite developed and deliciously accessible now. An heroic sauvignon. Drink now.
