Leitz 2022 Sauvignon Blanc

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested in a new vineyard, located at so called Edelmann site. The soils are
predominantly composed of profound loess loam; several parts contain marly soil from the Tertiary period and an
intense gravel blend closer to the city of Oestrich. Hereby the water capacity of the soils is very high, and we have an excellent distribution of water and nutritive substances even in hot years. This is the requirement for wines with a
high concentration. The grapes were picked early October 2022. It is our new Sauvignon Blanc, which lead us to let the mash sit for a while before we pressed very gently to achieve the best balance between a delicious fruit, sweetness, and acidity.

In 2022 we were facing a warm year with lower acidity contents. The must has been fermented for about 7 months in temperature controlled new oak barrels. It´s a new trial for us, but the main goal was to achieve a fresh and appealing high-grade entry level - we think we made it!
