Last weekend I had the pleasure to try the EdelStahl Sauvignon Blanc Fass 500 by Christian Stahl. This is not your ordinary Sauvignon Blanc, this is much more to my personal liking since I am not the biggest Sauvignon Blanc fan. I usually do not like them because of the often overpowering and almost artificial fruitfulness, that tends to border lemonade, that’s just not my kind of wine. But when I tried the Fass 500, I instantly knew why Christian Stahl had recommended it to me after I tried of one of his wines and an orange wine side by side - notes of wild herbs on the nose, also a little tangy, the first sip had some salty and umami flavours as well. Of course there are some tropical fruit aromas in there as well, but not the typical grapefruit and passion fruit - the fruit aromas are better counterbalanced and therefore embedded in the underlying powerful earthiness of the wine.
I have to admit I’m still not the biggest fan of Sauvignon Blanc, but paired with the right food this is absolutely wonderful and the chargrilled oysters we had were just perfect - maybe I’ll try some more Sauvignon Blancs in the near future.
All in all a perfect example of a beautifully handcrafted wine and yet another example that Franconia has some extraordinary wines to offer - although I knew that before already 😉
Just in case, if anybody was wondering - this is not a paid ad, just one franconian guy geeking out over another franconian guys wine.
