LEHEN Sauvignon Blanc

In Terlano, probably the best and best-known location for Sauvignon, Alois Lageder entered into successful grape supply agreements with two local wine-growers back in the 1970s. The interaction of their sites is reflected in the distinct personality of the Sauvignon Lehen: The contrast between the flint of the Lehenhof site with its high porphyry content and the fine structure of the Tannhammer site give the wine its fresh, fruity and harmonious character.
