Elena Walch Pinot Nero Alto Adige Südtirol Ludwig 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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
