This celebrated wine can lay claim to being one of the two or three deservedly most famous Sauvignons of Steiermark. Hochgrassnitzberg is a limestone-rich vineyard site at the home base of Polz in Spielfeld. The Sauvignon vines are 30 and 42 years old, time enough to imbue the resulting wines with aristocratic power and refinement.

The wine tradition of the Polz family started in 1912 at Grassnitzberg. Over the decades, the focus shifted from a mix of fruit growing and viticulture to exclusively harvesting grapes. At the end of the 1980s, Erich and Walter Polz took over and specialised even more in the diversity and quality of wines. Since 2011, Christoph Polz has been the winemaker, and he gives the wines his unique signature.
