J. Hofstatter produces white wines that are considered benchmarks for the region. Grown in ideal microclimates, the this Pinot Grigio is classic and very expressive.
Terroir: Massive prehistoric glaciers dug a broad gorge in the porphyry massif between the Ortler Alps and the Dolomites and created the Adige River and Lake Caldaro, which is fed by groundwater. Soils are made up of light marl. Vines average 30+ years old.
Vinification: The grapes are lightly pressed and the must is clarified using natural sedimentation, after which it is fermented at a controlled temperature and aged shortly in 100% stainless steel.
A classic and very expressive Pinot Grigio, bright straw yellow in color with an attractive aroma of citrus fruits, peach, honeydew melon and especially pear; medium rich, fruity, well-structured and direct on the palate with orchard fruit flavors and tangy, fruity acidity on the finish.
