2016 SYLVANER, Kuenhof. Alto Adige, Italy

Bin:  118

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

This comes from Alto Adige – the extreme north of Italy, close to Austria – and specifically from the Eisacktal region (Val D’Isarco in Italian), north-east of Bolzano. It’s high here (around 2,000 feet on average) with an extreme climate

Grape variety:

100% Sylvaner, fermented slowly with wild, natural yeasts and matured on the lees in a mix of steel and acacia-wood (30%) vats, for almost a year

Producer:

Kuenhof is a small estate run by Peter and Brigitte Pliger. It has been in their family for years but the grapes were previously sold to a large procure nearby – they started making wine in 1990. They are organic, but not certified as such.

Old Bridge rating:

Sylvaner is normally dull. This is totally exceptional. Somewhere between fine Riesling and Gruner Veltliner, this is delicate but rich, complex but easy to drink. Try it
