still waters run deep



Noble is he who is sufficient unto himself. Perhaps a little challenging and in any case sensitive. But with plenty of desirable qualities: clarity, freshness and complexity.

Grape variety

Sauvignon Blanc

Site and soil

The “Liebeneich” site at Terlan, a south-west facing slope at an altitude of 300 m above sea level where the micro climate is mild and breezy and soils are porous with a high mineral content consisting of sand and clay mixed with eroded porphyry.


2020 brought us an early harvest with good qualities and nice quantities. The new shoots appeared not very early, but a very warm spring and a balanced summer were optimal for the development of the vines, so that we already started harvesting on 25 August. During the harvest, there were repeated phases of rain, but with our quickness and our meticulous selection work, we were able to bring very good qualities into the cellar. We harvested our Sauvignon Blanc grapes at full ma-turity in the middle of September. Aromatic intensity, sugar concentration and acidity level were ideal. At 35 hl per hectare, the yield was very low.


The grapes were de-stemmed, after which the juice and solid parts (minus stalks) were left to macerate in the press for twelve hours in order to leech from the skins a maximum of aroma substances and extract. Fermentation was spontaneous and took place in oak using yeasts occurring naturally in the vineyard. The young wine was matured in oak barrels on the fine lees for nine months to allow its aromas and flavour to develop.

Description and food recommendations

Scintillating golden yellow in the glass. The aroma is intense reminiscent of tropical fruits, mango, papaya and passion fruit, full-bodied only on the middle-palate, otherwise mineral-like reminiscent of wet stones with juicy acidity finishing long with flinty notes.
Enjoy at optimum maturity from autumn 2021 to the end of 2028.
Serve: lightly chilled, 46 - 50 °F; in its youth the wine will benefit from decanting; serve in Burgundy glasses.
Delicious with shellfish and crustaceans, grilled sea fish and white meats.
