Franz Haas Sauvignon Alto Adige DOC
100% Sauvignon Blanc. A pale, straw yellow color with greenish highlights. The nose shows a colorful bouquet of aromas, including elderflowers, white peach, and complex notes of dried fruits. On the palate, it releases a lively and sapid acidity, while the finish is long, full and elegant.
“Since its foundation in 1880, the winery has focused on the quality of the grapes and bringing out the best in them. Special attention has always been given to using the minimum and most selective chemical substances during cultivation and fertilization.”
