A pleasant, full-bodied white wine with a rare elegance. Light green reflections sparkle through its golden colour. Its bouquet is characterised by fruity aromas, especially those of fresh green apples, such as those which ripen beside the vineyards of Merol. A fine balance between acidity and smoothness bestows a special structure on this Chardonnay. A fruity, lively, inviting wine which, when served chilled, goes well with many appetisers, with fish and white meat, or which may be enjoyed simply as an outstanding aperitif.
This is a very agreeable, fresh and flowery Chardonnay, pale yellow with green reflexes in colour with delicate, fruity, warm and persistent aromas of apple, especially Golden Delicious which underpins its varietal character. The wine's crisp, tangy acidity combined with its pronounced fruit and impressive structure point to a wine which will continue to develop complexity, with a cellaring potential of at least 2 years.
The flagship of the Marinushof is the Pinot Noir stored in the small oaken barrel. With strict selection in the vineyard this red wine becomes more intensive, more spicy, more complex. The oaken barrels are partly new, partly used, because the Pinot's fruit must have priority. With the strong profit limitation in the vineyard the wine wins in depth and strength. A Pinot who makes us a lot of joy and can be stored long.
A grape with small berries that has been cultivated in South Tyrol for decades, and which prevails in an aristocratic red wine. With its strong flowery bouquet, velvety finish and fine tannic quality, this wine is perfectly suitable as an accompaniment to meat dishes.
