Reviews of purchase Erwin Sabathi, Weissburgunder Klassik, 2017
The wine is medium to saturation greenish color with yellow highlights.
Taste wine juicy, rich, with a light, barely perceptible sweetness, tones of ripe yellow fruit, which emphasized small brackish and nuances of minerals. The finish is long.
Aromatic bouquet of wine abounds in tones of stone fruit and wild herbs, which are complemented by hints of honeydew melon.
Wine suitable for savory dishes of fish and white meat, smoked mackerel, lobster, gooseberry jam, as well as to not sharp cheeses.

Wine fermentation using the yeast's natural place in steel containers for three weeks at a strictly controlled temperature of 20 degrees.

The history of Erwin Sabathi began in 1650, when George Sabati founded a small winery. The management of the economy was transferred from generation to generation and only in 1914 it ceased to function. In 1938, the winery was sold to Johann Sabati and his wife, Lyudmila. In the mid-1950s, Johann significantly expanded the area of his vineyards, and planted the vines of the Sauvignon Blanc grape on them.
In 1968, Erwin Sabati purchased a store in which the company's wines are still sold today. During this period, new vineyards were also purchased. A big upsurge in the company began in 1992, when the leadership was completely transferred to Erwin Sabati. He built a new wine cellar, in which wine began to be aged since 2004.
The family winery, as in the old days, is located in the possession of Erwin. Here lives Erwin Sabati with two younger brothers, Gerd and Christoph. In 2016 the plant passed the process of certification of organic winemaking. According to the magazine "Falstaff" Erwin Sabathi was named a winery in 2016.
