Winzervereinigung Freyburg 2015 Sauv Blanc mini review

This is a wine from a recent German wine event I attended. The lone Sauv Blanc at the event. Pale in color with a mild nose with some nice grassy and citrus notes. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with grassyness and citrus coming through nicely. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice lively acidity with the lemon notes living on and building in the mouth. This is a softer gentler, well made sauv blanc. It would be very food friendly. I would give it an 88 or so. Sadly not in the LCBO but lists for $5 Euros in Germany.

From the winery’s web site:
Sauvignon Blanc

Savignon Blanc was first proved by documentary evidence in 1970. This type of grape comes from the southwest of France. Savignon Blanc belongs to the high-quality wines. It is a cross-breeding from a Traminer x Chenin Blanc, an old white type of grapes from the 9th century. Our Sauvignon Blanc wines have a strong flavour of herbs, grass, gooseberries and green fruit. As a high-quality wine it goes well with fish, seafood and pasta.
