Val Venosta Riesling
Top 5% wine in the UK
Aromatic white wine
Blend: 100% Riesling
From: Italy, dell’Alto Adige DOC
By: Franz Pratzner @ Falkenstein
Riesling grapes are hand picked from vineyards between 600 and 900 meters above sea level, in the Trentino Alto Adige region of northern Italy. The grapes are hand picked late in the season (October) and processed with great care and fermented in large acacia casks where the wine remains for ten months. After bottling the wine stays in store for further six months to rest and age perfectly before being sold.
This is a perfect example of a wine created with great passion. Winery owners, Franz and Bernadette Pratzner were previously apple farmers and in 1989 decided to abandon their apples orchards and dedicate themselves exclusively to viticulture!
Tasters Review – “High clarity. Fruity aroma opens up well. Smooth citrus flavour with notes of pear/apple increases with a long finish. Well balanced and light body”
Vivino users rate it a top wine with a stunning 3.9!
