ABOUT THIS WINE

An elegant frame and fine consistency, with intense notes. An excellent structure that is flavoursome and mineral, with a persistent palate.

The soil is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.The influence of the Eastern Alps, give to this wine its intense, characteristic bouquet. The grapes grow in glacial moraine soils and are harvested at the peak of ripeness.

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Aging on the lees for 6 months in stainless steel tanks without malolatic fermentation.

This wine pair wonderfully with white-fleshed fish dishes, asparagus and other spring vegetables.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Cantina Girlan was founded in 1923 in an ancient farmstead from the 16th century. Back then, 23 winegrowers laid the foundation stones of what was later to become the winery we see today. Today, about 200 greatly committed and motivated winegrowers and their families farm an area covering about 220 hectares of vineyards.

The main part of the grapes grows in Girlan between 450-500m a.s.l. on this morainic hill with volcanic porphyry (acid soils). Here, we grow our Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, Chardonnay as well as Vernatsch in the cru Gschleier.
The other important origin of our wines is Mazon, considered as the most valuable cru for Italian Pinot Noir and home of big part of our Pinot Noirs. It is located 20 km south of Girlan, on 400m a.s.l. with calcareous and clayey soils and western exposure.

The grapes, entirely hand-harvested, are received according to a precise harvest calendar and gently processed according to their quality, variety and origin.
