J. Hofstatter Pinot Grigio 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose and more floral and mineral than fruity though at its core there is something jammy and pithy that reminds me of bitter orange marmalade. Bright and vivid on entry, the palate reflects the nose in that this is very mineral driven and not a particularly fruity wine. Small scaled and very precise in the mouth this is focused like a laser through the long, minerally finish that shows some baking apple fruit. 87pts

The Alto Adige in Northern Italy is a superb cool climate region for producing expressive white wines. The Hofstatter estate is comprised of family-owned vineyards on the hillsides of the Adige Valley. The very finest wines come from sloping and steep vineyards. Steep vineyards expose the vines to more sunlight, rainwater drains away quickly and the "guyot" trellising method, which restricts the yield per vine, results in finer quality. For this wine the grapes are hand [icked on the east- to west-facing hillsides. They are lightly pressed and the must is clarified using natural sedimentation, after which it is fermented at cool temperatures. This wine is a classic and very expressive Pinot Grigio, bright straw yellow in color with an attractive aroma of citrus fruits, peach, honeydew melon and pear; medium rich, fruity, well-structured and direct on the palate with orchard fruit flavors and tangy, fruity acidity on the finish.
