Article number: Sattlerhof SB
Availability: In stock (42)

Sattlerhof is a leading producer in Austria’s South Styria region and produces benchmark examples of Styrian Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc. The Sattler family has been growing wine in the village of Gamlitz since 1887 and they were one of the first in the region to bottle high-quality dry white wines under their own name in the 1970s. Willi Sattler is the current family member in charge and has grown the estate to 40-hectares of organically farmed vines in some of the region’s most famous vineyards. South Styria (“Südsteiermark” in German) is the smallest of Styria’s three wine-growing regions and lies in the south of Austria near the Slovenian border. The region specializes in aromatic and refreshing dry white wines and is considered a world-class terroir for Sauvignon Blanc. Styria, sometimes called the “Green heart of Austria,” is exceptionally beautiful with vineyards planted on steep hillsides overlooking valleys of forests and meadows. The vineyards of Weingut Sattlerhof are centered around the village of Gamlitz, located less than 10km from the Slovenian border. Though it is instantly recognizable as sauvignon blanc, the Styrian style of this ubiquitouos grape is totally distinctive. They can be as stony as those from the Loire or as fruity as those from New Zealand, but there's something about the texture or density that is unique. When pairing, it likes fresh herbs, vegetables, seafood, or chicken, and creamy sauces.
