Plötzner

Pinot Bianco Alto Adige DOC

THE MOUNTAIN WINE

In the past, when South Tyrol was still a land of red wines, the hilly area around the Plötznerhof above Boymont Castle offered a chance to the grape of the Pinot Bianco. The meeting of the bleak limestone soil with the heat-retaining, quartz-rich porphyry rock and the cool mountain winds mean that this small, largely dry patch of earth offers ideal conditions for a Pinot Bianco with considerable depth of soul – then as now.

Complex aroma spectrum with smells of green apple, pears and peaches paired with fine citrus nuances, floral hints and almond touch. On the palate this elegant Pinot Blanc is refreshingly fruity and finesse-rich with a salty finish.
