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

A bit salty on the nose with hints of licorice and fennel and light older wood aromas. A hint of smoke and salted plum fruit. Light and elegant on entry with a fine, delicate texture. Fully ripe tannins, transparent blackberry and black plum skin fruit have just a hint of cocoa and licorice adding some complexity. The very light finish shows good fruit persistence with great transparency and a lovely, stony finale. This may be very small-scaled but at the same time, it is quite complete. 89pts

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

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

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

Pear, lemon and grassy taste. Tasted a light acidity that was very crisp

Elena Walch makes a number of delicious white wines but don't forget her Lagrein. It's full of dark, plush berries and makes a wonderful match with veal or lamb.

Der Lagrein von Elena Walch ist ein beeriges, weiches Gewächs von herber Fülle.
