Luzia Pinot Nero Adige DOC 2020, Kellerei St Paul’s, Alto Adige
Complex aroma spectrum of forest berries, cherry and raspberry but also red flowers, with a light herbal note. Elegant on the palate with surprisingly silky tannins and a fine flavour.
Formed in 1907 Kellerei St Pauls is a cooperative which today has over 200 members. Lying protected on the south side of the Alps and enjoying 1800 hours of sunshine a year, well aired by the downdraught from the Mendel range and benefitting from a high diurnal range, their vineyards are well-positioned to deliver consistently high-quality grapes. Their vineyards are predominantly managed by hand, and every stage of production benefits from modern, energy-efficient machinery.
Cold maceration for some days followed by slow fermentation at controlled temperature in
stainless steel. Maturation in big wooden barrels and Tonneaux.
