Freisinger Vernatsch (an autochthone grape variety of this alpine region) embodies the fruity and jovial side of this variety whose roots reach deep into the history of Alto Adige. An honest interpretation of a versatile wine to pair with typical recipes of Alpine cuisine.
"Great character, salty in the background, cool style, good finish. Classy.” Wein-Plus, January 2017
Vintage 2019: A dry winter and an initially cold month of March were followed by above-average temperatures in spring, favouring early bud break and premature flowering. From mid-May to early June the weather was mostly rainy and wet. During the following ripening stage rainfall was evenly distributed and only a few hot days made for short periods of drought. Throughout the summer the nights were refreshingly cool. Harvest began in early September and until mid-October it was repeatedly interrupted by single days of rain, luckily followed by longer periods of sun. The white wines are crispy and fresh and have an intense olfactory appeal. Finesse and elegance characterise the red wines, which already hint at a great aging potential.
