    • "Michei" Müller Thurgau Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2019

      “Michei” Müller Thurgau Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2019

      The recently acquired small Maso Michei winery supplies the grapes for this Müller Thurgau. The vineyards at an altitude of over 800m have an ideal southern exposure and, with their special microclimate, deliver the grapes for a Müller Thurgau of great aromatic depth, which is rightly one of the best in the Dolomite region. Intense light yellow. Fresh fruit on the nose, including green apple and bitter orange, lime blossom and the typical notes of nutmeg. Fresh on the palate and endowed with a lively acidity, this wine presents itself with a sophisticated lightness that completely convinces us. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Hofstätter
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Hofstätter

    Martin Foradori-Hofstätter is a forward and lateral thinker. At a young age, he took over the family business in the fourth generation and consistently expanded and converted it. The winery consists of several former farms and five "manors", as the great historical manors in South Tyrol are called. The wines are also named after them: Kolbenhof, Rechtenthaler Schlossleiten, Barthenau with Yngram, Steinraffler, Oberkerschbaum and the recently acquired Maso Michei in southern Trentino, a remarkable altitude, the roots of the fatherly ancestors of the Foradoris. Martin Foradori is proud to say that the family vineyard is the only one in South Tyrol with vineyards to the west and east of the Adige. Its approximately 50 hectares of vineyards lie on various soils and in different micro-climates from 250 m to 850 m above sea level. Some thrive in the morning sun, others get light and warmth early in the evening. Some of them on dizzying steep slopes, vineyards where, when you look up from the valley to the rocks, you can already hear: "Which madman is still growing wine up there?"

    The winery's headquarters are located in the middle of Tramin, where Martin Foradori-Hofstätter built the new wine cellar as a wine tower in 1997, right next to the church tower, due to lack of space, thus creating an architectural contrast in the historic town centre. The historic estate from the 16th century was once the imperial-royal post office and around 1900 became the inn "Schwarzer Adler", which was run by Martin Foradori's great-aunt. Her husband, Joseph Hofstätter, pressed the first wines in the cellar of the inn and thus founded the winery.

    Contrast also at work. The vineyards are cultivated close to nature and with elaborate manual work. As one of the first wineries in South Tyrol, they focused on "gentle pruning" to achieve healthy and long-lasting vines. Some are more than 70 years old today and the basis for the single vineyard wines. The Hofstätter Winery was also a pioneer in the region here, the first wines to be named after the location were "Vigna", comparable to "Cru" in France.

    In the cellar, however, nothing is left to chance. Here you will find the most modern technology, stainless steel and wooden barrels to process every grape material perfectly depending on the variety and location. In 2013, innovative concrete barrels were introduced, a novelty in wine production for South Tyrol. Due to their special aesthetics, they have meanwhile become an attraction of the winery.

    The focus is on the regional grape varieties, above all Gewürztraminer of course, after all Tramin is called the home of this original variety and has been mentioned here in chronicles at least since 1145. Besides Weissburgunder and various other white wine varieties, as well as the typical autochthonous grape varieties Lagrein and Vernatsch. Besides Traminer, however, Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero) is one of the most successful wines of the estate. The Vigna Sant'Urbano from the extreme locations of the Barthenau farm is certainly superior to the highly decorated Pinot Noir of Italy and many French Pinot Noir, although its origin is of course different. The Gewürztaminer of the Kolbenhof are the counterpart of the other bank of the Etsch, just as highly distinguished. The absolute top wines honour their ancestors with their labels: Ludwig Barth von Barthenau, who once cultivated the Pinot Noir Roccolo in Mazon, the Gewürztraminer Pirchschrait at the Kolbenhof is a tribute to Konrad Oberhofer, who was the first to vinify the grapes of individual vineyards separately in the 1930s. The Gewürztraminer Vigna Rechtenthaler Schlossleiten Spätlese commemorates Joseph Hofstätter, the founder of the winery. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Martin Foradori's winery is one of the most modern and dynamic in the country... Special attention is paid to traditional grapes, but new market demands and aggressive marketing strategies are always used to expand the radius of action."Gambero Rosso
