A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. When I toured Sudsteiermark several yrs ago, an absolutely beautiful area of rolling/steep hillsides, I found a lot of SauvBlancs that I liked quite a bit. Alas, you don't see many imported into the USofA. So when I saw this on the shelf, I wanted to try it. I liked the nose quite a bit, but the wein just didn't deliver on the palate. Sigh....
