Hofstatter Pinot Noir Mezcan 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This just smells lovely, full of forest floor, tea and earth notes that gently frame the fruit. In the mouth it's bright and linear with a soft, fleshy core of red fruits that gain complexity on the finish with notes of incense stems and tree bark. There is great freshness here and while it may be a touch lean at this stage it remains very engaging. 89pts

Taking stock of the past ten years I can confidently assert that the exceptional character of our local vineyards and grape varieties is reflected in our wines more than ever.

Taking stock of the past ten years I can confidently assert that the exceptional character of our local vineyards and grape varieties is reflected in our wines more than ever. South Tyrol’s best-known vines are cultivated in the Hofstätter wine estate. We even enjoy the unique privilege of owning vineyards in the finest sites on both sides of the Adige River in southern South Tyrol. However, it is precisely the work in the vineyards which I find the most challenging: decades of monoculture have exhausted the soils, sapped them of their vigour, the vigour which the grapevine needs to stay healthy and unfold its vitality to the full. And today the vine needs vital force more than ever before to withstand the increasingly extreme weather conditions. The word ‘terroir’ is often bandied about, as if it referred to an established factor, while in reality it is subject to the very same fluctuations that the far-sighted winegrower is confronted with in his daily work. He needs to recognise the elementary preconditions necessary for vines to yield superlative, distinctive, unmistakable wines, cultivating, fine-tuning and focusing his methods. This is the only way to enhance the quality of grapes in a vineyard which has always produced excellent fruit. I am striving to attain this without advance knowledge of the extent to which the world-wide ecological challenges are to be surmounted in a small organism such as a vineyard. I am confident that a workable solution will be found! Read less

Wine Tasting NotesThe result is a wine with unmistakable varietal character aimed at wine-lovers who look for roundness, fragrance and accentuated fruit in Pinot Noir: bright ruby in color with garnet reflexes, fresh and intense on the nose reminiscent of woodland berry fruits and cherry forming a harmonious bouquet, rich and elegant on the palate.
