The cool, fresh microclimate 580 m above Meran provides optimal conditions for this grape to develop to the full. Fine and fruity, with an exceptionally elegant note of peaches and apricots, it is fresh on the palate with a soft mineral finish.
100% Riesling. DOC South Tyrol.
The grapes for this Riesling grow in our terraces at 580 m above sea level directly at the winery above Merano. Here the grapes ripen in a cooler microclimate and can thus develop their beautiful fruit. In addition, the typical fresh animating acidity is preserved. The soils are characterised by mineral-rich granite and porphyry.
The grapes remain on the vine until they are absolutely ripe and are later read by hand. A long maceration period on the press extracts the typical Riesling notes the berry skin. The fermentation is 100%. in the wood at about 18°C. This is followed by 16 months of ageing on the fine yeast.
11 - 13°C.
8 - 12 years.
