Fine and fruity, with an exceptionally apart note of peaches and apricots, it is elegant and fresh on the palate. It also convinces with a slightly mineral finish.
Riesling - South Tyrol Alto Adige DOC.
The grapes for this Riesling grow in terraces at 580 m above sea level directly on the hills around 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 picked by hand. A long maceration period on the press extracts the typical Riesling notes the berry skin. Fermentation takes place 50% in steel tank and 50% in small wooden barrel at approx. 18Â°C. This is followed by 16 months of ageing on the fine yeast.
This Riesling is an excellent aperitif wine. It is also recommended with cold starters, salads and Mediterranean dishes.
Wine can contain sulphites.
