Floral with stemmy base notes then smoky with a hint of honey, some earthiness and a nice gentle sandlewood accent over lightly burnished red cherry fruit. On entry this is supple, elegant and brightly fruited with a bit of stemmy wood sticking out a bit. The finish is long and elegant with bright acids adding cut to the burnished raspberry fruit and this picks up some spice on the backend. Sappy and deep with a penetrating, extract rich intensity on the backend and the finish, this is very young and warrants cellaring for another few years or decanting for several hours. 93pts

Hellgelb, grünliche Nuancen. Saftige Aprikosen, Ananas und etwas Limettenschale im verführerischen, reiffruchtigen aber gleichwohl frischen Bouquet. Viel Eleganz und Saftigkeit zeigt der Gaumen: gelbe Steinfrüchte und florale Noten, Holunderblüten und ein dezenter Muskatton; eine gute Frische, die aber nicht aufdringlich ist, führt ins aromatisches Finale.

A lively ruby red color. It has exuberant and fresharomas reminiscent of woodland berry fruits and cherry forming a harmonious bouquet, rich and elegant on the palate. It is well-balanced, medium bodied with rich flavors and a lasting finish.

The color is a translucent crimson/ruby. Elegant but concentrated palate, lightish body. Corrupt cherries, a touch of wood. This wine is a total winner and would basically go with anything, but would be best with a rustic, northern italian dish.

Helles Rubin, granatfarbene Reflexe. Elegantes und gleichermassen finessenreiches Bouquet nach Hagebuttenkonfitüre und kleinen Waldhimbeeren, ergänzt durch den Duft blühender Veilchen, auch Mokkanoten. Wiederum sehr elegant im Gaumen, nach und nach intensiver werdend, Erdbeeren und Preiselbeeren, die Röstaromen sind gekonnt in die Aromatik eingebunden; saftige, sehr samtige Tannine führen ins äusserst aromatische, lange Finale. Zeigt viel Potenzial auf.

Dichtes Rubinrot. Heidelbeeren, Wacholder und pfeffrige Noten offenbaren sich in der offenen, fein parfümierten Nase, abgerundet von einem eleganten Veilchenduft. Rassiger, fast stürmischer Auftakt, abgelöst von viel Brombeerfrucht, Kirschenkompott und dem Aroma feiner Wildkräuter, sehr gut strukturiert und gehaltvoll, zartbitterer, lange anhaltender Abgang.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Gewurztraminer Kolbenhof shows wonderful depth and polish in its juicy, tropical fruit and well-articulated bouquet. The wine blossoms on the palate, with endless layers of fruit that lead to the energetic, clean finish. The Kolbenhof is often a standout, as it is again in 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019...Proprietor Martin Foradori can be counted on for sleek, elegant wines that capture the essence of some of the greatest terroirs in Alto Adige...92." WA 2/11
