92 • Biohof Pratsch 2007 Hoferthal, Sauvignon Blanc, Niederösterreich.
Silvery straw color. Gooseberry, tall grass, lime zest, and light praline aromas follow through on a very zesty entry to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body with a bright blend kumquat, grapefruit,and cream notes. Finishes with a tangy, lingering, mineral accented fade. A remarkably fresh and "alive" sauvignon blanc that will shine with spicy seafood cuisine. (tasted on Jan-14-2009)
