The Sauvignon Blanc from the Knott vineyard in Marling is reminiscent of grapefruit and elegant passion fruit, with a deep minerality, a fresh bouquet and a lively acidity on the palate.

Tasting note

Our Sauvignon from the vineyards in Marling is characterized by elegant grapefruit, fresh lemon peel and nettle. On the palate a pleasant acidity with deep minerality and a nice drinking flow.


The grapes for our Sauvignon grow in the Knott vineyard in Marling, at 360 m above sea level. The vineyard, which looks towards Merano, has a slight inclination. The slightly sandy moraine soil consists of granite and slate. Here the vines are pampered and warmed by the morning sun. In the late afternoon the grape zone cools down. This preserves the freshness and the typical Sauvignon taste.

Eichenstein Vineyard


The family of Josef Waldner, owner of the winery, have been making wine for 350 years. The origin of winemaking at the Eichenstein has its roots in Marling, where the dedicated wine lover created his first white wine cuvée “Gloria Dei” in 2005. In 2006, he followed on with his “Baccara” Marlot and Cabernet Franc red wine cuvéè, assisted and advised by renowned enologist Hartmann Donà. In 2007 Josef Waldner further realised his vision when he established the Eichenstein vineyard on the Freiberg, from 550-600 m, above Meran. In 2014, the crowning jewel of the vineyard was built: The wine cellar, a vinarium and a guest chalet. And in 2018, the most recent porphyry plot was established at 500 m above sea level.
