Cantina Terlan are one of the world's great co-operative wineries with a singular dedication to quality that is almost unparalleled in the world of wine (perhaps by Domaine Wachau, Produttori Barbaresco and a few others).
Quartz is Sauvignon Blanc but not like anything you know. This is full throttle Sauvignon, picked in a cool climate with a long growing season where flavours have been able to develop into the most gorgeously complex melange of exotic fruits - lemon, grapefruit, dried mango and cumquat. Partial barrel fermentation is like surround sound, realising the stereoscopic potential of this wine. Awesome.
Origin: Alto Adige / South Tyrol / Italy
