REGION: Pfalz, Germany
VARIETIES: Sauvignon Blanc
Ah, Germany - the land of Riesling. Such a noble grape in so many different. . . wait, what? This is a Sauvignon Blanc?! Heresy! And yet, what Oliver Zeter does is exciting all kinds of people in the wine world. That doesn’t really mean much, though, so instead just understand that what he is doing is so far away from the norm, both for the region, and the grape. Sauvignon is known for producing some of the best whites in the world from Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, of course, and this isn’t a million miles away.
