Out of 1,210 wines submitted, the Sauvignon Raif from the Castelfeder winery in Kurtinig was awarded the winner of the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon a few days ago and thus the best Italian Sauvignon. In the course of the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon, one of the most important international competitions representing the diversity and quality of the grape variety, 50 international experts tasted a wide variety of Sauvignons from all over the world for 3 days in South Africa.
At the Prowein wine trade fair in Düsseldorf, the winner of the "Revelation Italy" was announced - the Sauvignon Raif by the Castelfeder winery convinced the expert jury, among other things, with its structure, full-bodiedness, balanced acidity and complex aroma interplay of exotic fruit, floral notes and vegetal nuances. . "We are very proud that our Sauvignon is among the other country winners, including some icons like Saint Claire from New Zealand and Joseph Mellot from France," said Ivan Giovanett, 3rd generation cellar master of the family winery.
And it goes straight on for the Castelfeder winery: the new vintage of Sauvignon Raif has just been released - already very promising and perfect for the upcoming asparagus season. Available for €16.90 at the Wineshop in Egna/Neumarkt (Via della Madonna 8/1) and in our onlineshop Enoselezione.
