There is a large consensus of opinion that the Kolbenhof vineyard is one of South Tyrol's grand crus for Gewürztraminer, thanks to the happy combination of the particular micro-climate, the ideal location and the age of the vines.
Bright rich golden yellow in colour, extremely concentrated on the nose, typically aromatic reminiscent of smoked spices with hints of Muscat, dried flowers and rose petals combining to form striking and impressive bouquet of flowers, all of which follows through on the palate. Unctuous and firm, this Gewürztraminer has enormous concentration and richness, spice and freshness. One or two years' bottle-ageing will enable it to develop even more intensity and complexity.
This wine is delicious enjoyed in solitude, though it is perfect to accompany shellfish, oysters or foie gras, or used in the preparation of full flavoured fish dishes.
