Description

Alto Adige Val Venosta Gewüztraminer 2020 Falkenstein

Variety: Gewüztraminer 100%

Straw yellow, intense tending towards gold

On the nose there are crystal clear aromas of lychee, elderberry and white peach, tropical fruits such as mango and passion fruit and a beautiful rose.

On the palate it is clean, precise and balanced. Excellent hardness, made of extreme minerality and freshness, to counteract the tendency towards softness intrinsic to the vine. He is certainly a Gewürztraminer who in our classification defines himself as thin. Not opulent but precise and even with hints of elegance. Perfect time to drink it, but a few more months can only help him.

Alto Adige Val Venosta Gewüztraminer 2020 Falkenstein

The renowned Falkenstein winery, owned by the Pratzner family for 400 years, is located on the left bank of the Val Venosta, on the so-called Rocca del Falco, which dominates the town of Naturno from above.

Falkenstein is located near the Sonnenberg mountain and extends with its 12 hectares of vineyards on a hill in a sunny area at 650 meters above sea level. The particular climate, with hot days and cool nights, lends itself perfectly to the cultivation of the Weissburgunder (Pinot Bianco), Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir), Sauvignon and Gewürztraminer varieties. But above all of Riesling, so much so that Falkenstein’s Riesling is one of the best in southern Germany.
