Esterházy Estoras, Sauvignon Blanc 2016


75cl bottle: £10.95

Case of 12 75cl bottles: £131.40


We weren't quite sure what to expect when we tasted this Sauvignon Blanc from our favourite Austrian producer, Esterházy. Once tasted however we placed an order that very afternoon. The wine is a superb example of this ever popular grape variety and will please both fans of new world and old alike. Very pure fruit expression on the nose which doesn't overpower. The palate displays balance and complexity, appealing texture and wonderful length. All in all and eminently drinkable Sauvignon, all the finesse of Sancerre, without the price tag.


Our Tasting Notes

On the nose fine mix of gooseberry, elderflower blossom and grapefruit. On the palate soft character, which appears in a mild, perfectly integrated acidity and a creamy and full body. A rather ripe ambassador of this variety, which stimulates for the next glass.
Perfect with fish, cold and warm starters or poultry.

The Esterházys, who employed Haydn for 30 years as court composer, have been making wine since the early 18th century and were one of the largest landowners in Europe until 1939. Both Empress Maria Theresa and Goethe were especially fond of Estoras wines and Haydn enjoyed them so much that he asked for his salary to be partly paid in wine. Nowadays the Esterházy winery is an über modern affair, seamlessly combining heritage and tradition with up to date wine making know-how.

"This is a juicy, fresh, curranty Sauvignon Blanc described as Sancerre without the price tag. It is certainly sleek and gooseberry-toned." - Rose Murray Brown, The Scotsman (on a previous vintage)
