Pinot Blanc Rarity South Tyrol Alto Adige
A.A. Pinot Bianco Riserva "V Years"
“I had the idea many years ago of creating a great white wine Riserva that would spend five years maturing on fine yeast in the cellar. It was always important to me to test the winemaking possibilities of our leading white grape variety,” says cellar master, Stefan Kapfinger.
The grapes for this graceful meditation wine come from a single estate below Tyrol Castle. Great emphasis is placed on care and a love of detail during its production. The very best clones, meticulous yield regulation and the most elaborate craftsmanship are the credo here. After careful whole-cluster pressing and with natural sedimentation, this masterpiece is left to rest for one year in oak barrels and a further 4 years in steel barrels on fine lees. Only after over 5 years - as the name suggests - does this special wine find its way into the bottle.
