Köfererhof Müller-Thurgau Valle Isarco Eisacktaler 2006
Acquired and managed by the Kerschbaumer family since 1940, the Kofererhof estate has existed in southern Tyrol, a region that is as Austrian in spirit as it is Italian, for over 850 years. In 1995, the winery started to bottle its own wines after having sold its fruit to local wineries for years. Kofererhof's tiny 5 hectares of vines are located at the base of the Dolomite mountains between 700 and 800 metres above sea level. At this high altitude, the variation in temperatures from day to night is ideal, and the carefully tended, high-density vineyards yield intensely fragrant, concentrated and well-balanced wines. All grapes are harvested by hand, and attention to detail is paramount in this limited production winery. The quality of these wines raises the bar for all whites from Alto-Adige.
Fresh and quite intense on the nose, it has a nice perfumed bouquet. On the palate the wine is well balanced with subtle acidity and a lovely round and aromatic style. Flavours of peach, white flowers and citrus, it is a perfect wine for lunch time. QC http://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com
