Styria

Lackner-Tinnacher Sauvignon Blanc "Gamlitz" '18

Amongst the most beautiful wine regions I’ve visited, Styria is a special place, located in Southern Austria. 

Picture a sea of green, vines, grass, deciduous forests full of spruce, fir, pine and oak trees. Steep hillside vineyards that make harvesting difficult, but offer perfect exposure for the vines. An Alpine-Mediterranean climate that provides a diurnal temperature shift that gives ripe grapes the adequate freshness for both balance and longevity. Finally, a patchwork of soil diversity, telling the story of thousands of years of erosion. 

Not only does winemaker Katharina Tinnacher draw inspiration from the land, but also her families history, producing wine going back to 1770. She took over from her father in 2010, achieved certified organic farming shortly after, and in just a decade has cemented her role as one of the top winemakers in not just Styria, but in Austria as a whole.

Only white wine is produced at Lackner-Tinnacher, but from a host of varietals including Welschriesling, Morillon, Weissburgunder, Muskateller, Grauburgunder and the feature varietal today, Sauvignon Blanc. 

“Gamlitz” takes its name from the local village, and means “hill.” This cuvée is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, from three different vineyards, Steinbach, Eckberg and Türken. Fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks, and rested on its lees for 8 months before bottling.

The resulting wine is a beautiful expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Citrus notes, stone fruit, white flowers and mineral can be found on the nose and palate. This has plenty of freshness, but still has enough weight to carry it alongside of food. This is yet another beautiful wine from Katharina Tinnacker.
