Abbazia di Novacella Muller Thurgau 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

An aromatic white wine which has become a speciality of the Eisack Valley: pale straw yellow with green reflexes, apple and peach fruit on the nose with a hint of mango, ripe and full on the palate, its opulence cut by crisp acidity. Excellent with cold summer pasta salads, it has the weight to hold up to pork, veal, roast chicken or swordfish.

Abbazia di Novacella:
The Abbazia di Novacella is located in the northern-most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral-rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft – 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth-watering acidity found in our wines produced from the typical white Valle Isarco valley grape varieties.

The Abbazia di Novacella is located in the northern-most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral-rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft – 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth-watering acidity found in our wines produced from the typical white Valle Isarco valley grape varieties. The long drawn-out ripening period extending well into the autumn is crucial. The most widely-grown vines in our vineyards around Varna just north of Bressanone are Sylvaner, Kerner, Gewürztraminer and Veltliner. The monastery also owns vineyards in the warm central region of Alto Adige which supply the red grapes. They include the full-bodied, savoury Lagrein from the Mariaheim vineyard in Bolzano and red wines from the Marklhof estate in the cool rolling hills of Cornaiano to the south of Bolzano where the grapes are harvested, crushed and the wines matured. The wines include Vernatsch, Pinot Nero and the lusciously sweet Moscato Rosa (‘Rose Muscat’, the name deriving from the variety’s typical scent of roses). With over 850 years of experience coupled with state-of-the-art winemaking technology, top-class expertise and the enormous enthusiasm the wines generate among our employees, we succeed in producing wines bursting with flavour and varietal character year after year, to the joy of wine-lovers worldwide.

Made in a fat, rich style, it reveals an exotic bouquet followed by layers of perfumed sweet fruit, minerals and spices, with notable vibrancy on the palate and gorgeous overall balance.
