Heiner Lobenberg über:
Sauvignon Blanc Quarz 2020


Lobenberg: Ein generöser Sauvignon Blanc, ohne jedwede nervöse Stachelbeerigkeit, keine grüne Nervosität eines Neuseeland-Weins. Südtirol zeigt ja generell eher Loire-Eigenschaften in dieser Rebsorte, die Cantina Terlan geht da noch weiter. Südsteiermarksche Ausdruckskraft, Tements Zieregg aus Südtirol, dazu reifer Pfirsich, cremiger Safran und Limette. Tee mit Zitronengras kommt auch in den Sinn. Die lande Zeit auf der Vollhefe und der hälftige Barrique-Ausbau geben ein reiches Mundgefühl, fast etwas bordeauxartig. Ein fast großer Sauvignon Blanc, der Beste Italiens, nie zu aufdringlich und dabei sehr langlebig. 95-96+/100


Parker zu 2019 über: Sauvignon Blanc Quarz

-- Parker zu 2019: With fruit from high mountain vineyards, this is a brilliant wine, and I mean that both literally and figuratively. Luminous and bright, the 2019 Alto Adige Terlano Sauvignon Quarz sparkles and shines with passion fruit, jasmine, tropical tones, wild sage and curry leaf. There's even a touch of freshly milled white pepper. This is Italian Sauvignon Blanc in all its glory, and, as always, Cantina Terlano shows a deft winemaking hand to guide the grape's natural aromas but also to render a most elegant interpretation. 2019 was an interesting growing season there, with cold, heavy rains in March, a very sunny and warmer May followed by a relatively cool June, and then a hotter summer, but it all turned out great for this vintage of 60,000 bottles. 95/100


Suckling über: Sauvignon Blanc Quarz

-- Suckling: A beautifully crafted sauvignon blanc that marries the fruity, herbal, vegetal and mineral aspects of this grape to create a seamless and complex masterpiece. So pure, so elegant and refined, yet also invigorating, thanks to its Alpine freshness. Very long, crystalline finish. Drink or hold. 95/100


Galloni über: Sauvignon Blanc Quarz

-- Galloni: The word ‘spicy’ doesn’t do the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Quarz justice, as this goes much deeper than that. Exotic curries, ginger, smoke and tomato leaf can all be found; yet beneath it all, there’s a vivid note of honeydew melon. This is silky-smooth and pliant upon entry, yet it slowly saturates the palate in primary concentration, as pepper-tinged nectarine and lemon extracts resonate throughout. There’s so much youthful tension, power and staining depths within, and also a balancing flourish of sweet inner florals that lasts incredibly long. The 2020 Quarz is going to require cellaring to show its best, but it will absolutely be worth waiting for. This is world-class Sauvignon. 93+/100
