FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites - SYLVANER, Kuenhof. Alto Adige, Italy

2015 SYLVANER, Kuenhof. Alto Adige, Italy

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: This comes from Alto Adige - the extreme north of Italy, close to Austria - and specifically from the Eisacktal region (Val D'Isarco in Italian), north-east of Bolzano. It's high here (around 2,000 feet on average) with an extreme climate
Grape Variety: 100% Sylvaner, fermented slowly with wild, natural yeasts and matured on the lees in a mix of steel and acacia-wood (30%) vats, for almost a year
Producer: Kuenhof is a small estate run by Peter and Brigitte Pliger. It has been in their family for years but the grapes were previously sold to a large procure nearby - they started making wine in 1990. They are organic, but not certified as such.
Old Bridge Rating: Sylvaner is normally dull. This is totally exceptional. Somewhere between fine Riesling and Gruner Veltliner, this is delicate but rich, complex but easy to drink. Try it
