Reviews of purchase Domaine Andau, Sauvignon Blanc
The wine is light golden color with greenish highlights.
In the delicate taste of the wine, tones of citrus, green apple and exotic fruits are guessed, and a crisp, balanced acidity leaves a light, spicy aftertaste.
The seductive aroma of the wine reveals notes of gooseberry, peach and lime in combination with mineral and grassy accents.
The wine will be an excellent gastronomic accompaniment for seafood, shellfish, fish dishes, vegetarian cuisine and goat cheese.
Domaine Andau, Sauvignon Blanc - light, aromatic dry white wine from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in the vineyards of the Burgenland region near Lake Neusiedl. The local climate, with its hot, dry summers, when the daytime temperature often rises to 39 ° C, contributes to the production of high quality wines. High iron sandy soils give wines a delicate, elegant, mineral character. After harvesting and traditional vinification methods, the wine is aged 5 months in stainless steel tanks and bottled.
Domaine Andau was founded in 1959 and today unites 90 wine families of the Austrian region of Burgenland, whose common value is taking care of nature. The main reason for the creation of the cooperative was the record grape harvest of 1958 - many families simply could not store a large amount of wine and needed to organize sales.
Today, under the auspices of the company, there are almost 600 hectares of vineyards in Neusiedlersee, which makes Domaine Andau not only the largest cooperative in Austria, but also gives great responsibility in providing income for small wineries. Local grape varieties grow in the vineyards, the main emphasis is on red varieties - Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch and Saint-Laurent, but white grape varieties such as Grüner Veltliner and Welschriesling play an important role. The quality of Domaine Andau wines is due to the use of only ripe and healthy grapes, which, in turn, is caused by lean methods of viticulture.
