Founded in 1893, Cantina Terlano has grown into one of the leading wine growers' cooperatives in the Alto Adige region of northeastern Italy. With a current membership of 143 growers farming a total area of 165 hectares, Terlano insures the highest standards of quality by compensating growers for the quality of their grapes not the quantity. The emphasis in the vineyard is on reducing yield in favor of producing more concentrated fruit.
Terlano Sauvignon Winkl has been produced from the fruit of the sandy and mineral-laden Winkl vineyard. Translucent pale yellow with greenish tints, it is full-bodied, with delightful scents of summer flowers, sage and dried pineapple. Earthy and surprisingly powerful with grapefruit, coriander and hints of truffled honey on the palate. Stainless steel fermented with 6 months on the lees, Winkl is focused and stylish. 9,000 cases are made of this crisply balanced Sauvignon.
