Tiefenbrunner Alto Adige Turmhof Anna Pinot Bianco 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Leesy on the nose then turning quite mineral and dusty with dried citrus pith and white flower pollen top notes. Bright acids greet the mouth and early on this is like licking a rock! Tense with just enough flesh covering the mineral acid, this offers up very clear and precise apple fruit over a huge base of minerality with ever so slight accents of something herbal or vegetal adding complexity. This is elegant, and really lovely with a long, succulent and clean finish. 93pts

Entiklar is situated in the southern part of South Tyrol (Unterland), where the wine road winds gently through the most attractive vineyards in the region. In this small hamlet, belonging to the village of Kurtatsch, blessed with a centuries-old tradition of winegrowing, there is a castle dating from the 12th century. This, together with the family name to the wine estate, Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof. The loamy, chalky soils and the Mediterranean climate – characterised by a moderate rainfall and a cool evening wind, which produces considerable differences between day and night temperatures – result in the perfect ripening of the cellars where they lend the wine its unmistakable character. A peculiarity of the Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof wine estate is the Müller Thurgau “Feldmarschall von Fenner”, cultivated at 1.000 meters above sea level. Viticulture at this altitude is unique Europe. Read less
