These Sauvignons from Austria’s Südsteiermark region really are something else. I remember very clearly the first time I tasted Erich and Walter Polz's Erste Lage single-vineyard wines. They show amazing terroir expression and are among the most compelling examples of the variety being made anywhere. Erich and Walter took over the running the estate in the early 1980s and cultivate around 70 hectares of vines. Not really reminiscent of Sancerre or any new world Sauvignon, these make for a very interesting wine list addition.
