Very juicy on the palate, elegant flavour, enormous length, equipped with an endless aging potential.
The name “Sorgenbrecher” refers to the history of our winery. (The meaning of “Sorgenbrecher” is “to cut down worries”):
“The Pössnitzberger Sorgenbrecher is a homage to my grandfather Johann Sabathi.
In the fifties he recognised and supported the high potential of Pössnitzberg. At that time he already named his best wines ‘Pössnitzberger Sorgenbrecher’.
In addition, this wine is also in memory of the 100th death anniversary of my great-grandfather Johann Sabathi. He died very young in the First World War in 1915.” (Erwin Sabathi)
The single vineyards from Pössnitzberg are predestined as a great white wine terroir. Due to the interaction of the soil structure and of the climatic factors the single vineyards there are unique. These Sauvignon Blanc wines are very authentic. This wine from Single Sineyard Pössnitzberger Sorgenbrecher, one of our rarities, is delicately mineral, very salty on the palate, shows a tight structure and a high aging potential. The harvest yield is limited to a maximum of 45 hectolitres. As a rarity, this wine is allowed to be offered for sale at the earliest on the 1st of May after 30 months of maturation.

This vineyard is a climatically very protected with low upwinds. The Single Vineyard Pössnitzberger Sorgenbrecher is one of the warmest and steepest vineyards on Pössnitzberg.
Pössnitzberg is located on the southern part of the "West Styrian Bay" of the Styrian Basin. In former times (in the Neogene), several 1000 meter thick marine sediments have been deposited there. These deposits, also called "Steirischer Schlier", are clayey up to fine sandy, gray-green coloured marls including plant fossils and sandstone interstratifications. These scarce and very chalky soils, called “Opok” (chalky marl), are characterised by a humous topsoil formed by weathering, which often does not exceed a height of 20 centimeters, and firm sedimentary rocks.
