Elena Walch – the wine style is as elegant as the name. Encouraging quality and innovation, Elena Walch stood at the head of the Alto Adige quality revolution and has gained local and international esteem for her efforts. An architect by trade, Elena Walch married into one of the oldest and most significant wine families of the region and brought new, modern concepts to the traditional establishment. Now, the responsibility for the family business is being put into the hands of the daughters, Julia and Karoline Walch, already the fifth generation.    The philosophy of the estate is dedicated to its terroir – the idea that wines must be the individual expression of their soil, climate and cultivation in the vineyard – and that this must be maintained according to principles of sustainability and passed on to the next generation. The firm belief that the quality of wine is created in the vineyard requires uncompromising work, taking into account the individuality of each vineyard. With 55 hectares in cultivation, including the two top vineyards Castel Ringberg in Caldaro und Kastelaz in Tramin, Elena Walch belongs to the most important protagonists of Alto Adige winemaking.    The wines show character, elegance and great personality, reflecting the most professional winemaking. The superb climatic conditions and the excellent location of the vineyards produce fresh and fruity white wines as well as concentrated and velvety red wines. Read less

Super perfumes on the nose are full of oily herbs, a smoky undertone, violets, fresh flowers, fresh fruits, a little blueberry and some fresh oak. This is bright on entry with an early wood sweetness. Terrific fruit with real energy and lovely freshness. This shows off pure inner mouth perfumes of sour plum and black currant, which drive onto the bright and persistent fruit-driven finish. 92pts

Clear and transparent, not very consistent, straw-yellow colour. Despite the age, still a pretty acid taste. Very intense fruity aromas.

Crisp mineral nose with a faint sulfur quality. Moderate-to-high acidity in the mouth with a light body and notes of green peppers and grass. Bizarre almost nonexistent finish. Well made but a little weak overall for me.

Crisp linens, fresh flowers, clean air on the nose; it's a modest little cottage, freshly prepped for guests. Citrus-and-flint notes throughout, twisty acidity on the finish.

Steely and crisp citrus aromas. Lightly flavored of lime and melon. Short finish.

The nose is fairly powerful, very floral, with peach and green apple. The grannie smith comes across stronger on the mouth, with strong acidity. A mineral edge helps fill out the body, but it could use something else, a butteriness or hint of oak would have been nice. I would give a 3.5 for aroma and 2 for mouth.

Mushrooms and briny oysters on the nose - mercaptans. Much more flavorful in the mouth, with bay leaf and pear flavors.

Elena Walch makes some very respectable wines, not the least of which is her lovely Pinot Grigio. This is fresh, round in texture, and full of floral and yellow plum fruits on the palate. Dry and delicious.

Der Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg ist ein säurearmer Weisswein von opulenter Frucht. Ein Gewächs von buttriger Fülle und samtener Milde, das sehr gekonnt Würze mit Eleganz verbindet.

Elena Walch beweist mit dem Merlot, dass sie auch eine hervorragende Rotweinproduzentin ist. Unsere Degustationsnotizen: Jugendliche, tiefrubinrote Farbe. In der Nase sortentypisch. Ein saftiger, eleganter Merlot mit viel Finesse.
