Sauvignon Blanc Lafóa, Colterenzio

SAUVIGNON BLANC LAFÓA

Tasting notes

A clean, concentrated fl oral nose reminiscent of elder and acacia flower with hint of sage; fresh and distinctive on palate with nicely rounded fruit, light oak spice and a crisp finish. Cellaring potential: 5-8 years

Food Combination

Enjoy it with a snack of fresh goats’ cheese and smoked salmon pâté with crusty bread, or as a partner to lobster tail salad, full-flavoured fish dishes, scallops stir-fried with ginger, or goats’ cheese soufflé. Serve lightly chilled: 12-14° C

Grape Variety

100% Sauvignon blanc

Location

The Lafóa site is located in a sunny position on a rounded ridge between the village of Cornaiano and the hamlet of Schreckbichl at an altitude of 430 metres a.s.l. with optimum sun-exposure. The soils are sandy, with gravely morainal deposits. The vineyard was planted in 1989 with three French clones, Guyot-trained at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare

Yielding

45 hl/ha

Winemaking

The fully ripe grapes are crushed, briefly left to soak and pressed. The juice is left to decant naturally. Half of the total quality is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the other half in standard oak-casks and barriques. Only the part vinified in oak is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The fi nal blend is made after the wine has aged for 8 months on its fi ne lees. Light filtering and bottling follows
