Praeclarus Pas Dosé

Blanc de Blancs Alto Adige DOC
Winesheet

A vintage sparkling wine par excellence. The essence of Chardonnay, full of character and multi-layered. Elegant, profound and lastingly impressive.

Bright straw yellow with silver reflexes. Strong in character, with fine citrus fruits and a hint of white flowers. Nuances of dried fruit, white peaches, ripe apricots, fresh mountain herbs, spiced bread and brioche. Velvety texture; long, minerally finish; delicate, lasting perlage.

  • Terroir
    The Chardonnay grapes come from our oldest vineyards, situated in exposed locations above Appiano between 300 and 500 metres above sea level on the calcareous dolomite rock of the Mendel range with its sand and clay deposits. The southeast-facing location, constant downdraughts and temperature differences between day and night during the autumn combine to produce a unique microclimate where the grapes fully ripen for an above-average length of time on the vine, thus developing an optimal acid-to-sugar ratio.
  • Vinification
    Praeclarus Pas Dosé is a vintage sparkling wine in which only selected wines of a particular year are made into sparkling wine. The ripe grapes are hand-picked. Gentle pressing of the whole grapes is followed by several months of aging of the basic wine in large wooden barrels; then comes traditional bottle fermentation with 60 months of maturing on the fine lees at a naturally constant temperature in the confines of the historic bunker.
