TASTE
The inviting bouquet initially reveals notes of gooseberry paired with a touch of currant followed by nuances of elderflower, nettles and flint. Well balanced and firmly structured, this wine impresses with notes of minerals and clearly defined varietal aromas on the finish.

PRODUCER
With fifty hectares of vineyards, Tenuta J. Hofstätter is one of the largest private wine estates in Alto Adige, and yet manages to live up to its reputation for absolutely pristine quality. It is meticulously run by fourth generation Martin Foradori Hofstätter, whose ancestor Joseph founded the estate in 1907. The pinnacle of the range is the single-vineyard Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero, planted in the 1950s by Martin’s father. His neighbours thought he was mad at the time; this is now one of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir not just in Alto Adige, but in the whole of Europe.

VINEYARD
Hofstätter’s vineyards are situated on both sides of the Adige river, at between 250 and 800 metres altitude. The Sauvignon Blanc is grown on gravelly limestone soil. The grapes were harvested by hand.

WINERY
The grapes were given eight hours’ maceration, then pressed and the juice fermented at 15oC. The wine was bottled without fining.
