• Südtiroler Vernatsch DOC 2018

      Südtiroler Vernatsch DOC 2018

      The warm south-eastern slopes of the Eisacktaler are among the best in South Tyrol. Easily warmable moraine shelters made of porphyry and dolomite material and a Mediterranean microclimate give Vernatsch abundance and concentration. Brilliant ruby red, cherry, currant and violet bouquet; velvety mild, well structured and at the same time pleasantly youthfully fresh. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, powerful cherry red. In the nose first spicy, then after ripe cherries, blackberries, shows in the aftertaste slightly vegetal-spicy tones. Full palate with a lot of fruit and juice, full-bodied Vernatsch with deep fruit, filled the mouth fully, full sip, delicately spicy and smooth in the drink and in the finale." Falstaff

      Südtiroler Weissburgunder DOC 2018

      Fine Pinot Blanc from the southernmost part of the Eisack Valley, which is particularly favourable for this grape variety. Straw yellow in the glass, pleasantly fruity fragrance of ripe pears and apples with creamy nuances of chamomile. On the palate fresh, harmonious with lively acidity and beautiful fullness. Mineral finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny straw yellow. Fragrant and open-hearted nose, opens on nuances of white peach, delicate lychee, Golden Delicious apple, slightly salty. On the palate smooth and firm, captivates with its vibrating middle part, cool alpine and yet fine, in the finale it presses on the palate, long finish." Falstaff

      Südtiroler Eisacktaler Grüner Veltliner DOC 2018

      This wine, rich in finesse, is a rarity in South Tyrol and occurs only occasionally in the Eisack Valley. Sparkling straw yellow with olive green edges. In the nose slightly peppery, on the palate gracefully fresh, juicy, with beautiful structure and a beautiful mineral note in the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense lemon yellow with a light golden touch. The nose smells of wet stone, lime zest, lemon, white flowers, crystalline. Balanced and clear on the palate, spreading with typical pepper, precise drink, harmonious in attack and course, well done". Falstaff

    • Südtiroler Eisacktaler Gewürztraminer DOC 2016

      Südtiroler Eisacktaler Gewürztraminer DOC 2016

      The history of the demanding Gewürztraminer goes back to the early Middle Ages. The autochthonous grape variety thrives best on airy slopes between 250 and 450 m on loamy and sandy soils with plenty of sunlight. And then the wine can convince like this: straw yellow with soft green reflections, with a pronounced bouquet of roses, some carnation and vanilla and an independent character on the palate. A Gewürztraminer with support in the body, with a lot of elegance and harmony in the fine mineral finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, sparkling golden yellow. Very intense and clear nose, smells seductively of lychee, baby pineapple and rose petals. Full and voluminous on the palate, spreads out powerfully, intense notes of lychee and clove, but remains nice to drink, long aftertaste." Falstaff

    About the winemakers
    Weingut Ebner
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Weingut Ebner

    The Eisack Valley between Bozen and Brixen is the northernmost wine region of Italy. Here at 600 to 800m above sea level, mostly on alpine, steep primary rock soils of porphyry, quartz and mica, viticulture often reaches its physical limits.

    In one of the best locations lies the "Rittner sun plateau" in the southern Eisack valley, below the impressive Schlern massif, where Brigitte and Florian Unterthiner cultivate their vineyards. Only five hectares are planted here on formerly volcanic soils, porphyry and calcareous, with Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon and the almost exotic Grüner Veltliner. For red wine, the Unterthiners rely on their award-winning Vernatsch, Pinot blanc, as Pinot noir (optionally: Pinot noir) is called here and again on an Austrian grape variety, the Zweigelt.

    The Mediterranean influence flows through the valley in summer and especially in autumn, and with its sunny, mild days and cool alpine mountain air at night makes for very independent wines. Racy, powerful and subtle at the same time. The work of Florian and Brigitte Unterthiner, the third generation of the family to run the farm, is characterised by passion and tradition in more than 40 year old pergola handicraft vineyards on terraces with deep roots, which therefore survive dry periods well - but also by the courage to do something new, such as gentle pruning. Sustainability, quality and origin are not buzzwords, but are lived here. For example, the use of herbicides is completely dispensed with and the soil is kept vital with stable fertiliser.

    The Unterthiners produce deep wines full of character. The technique and the statistics are not in charge here, the grapes are tasted here and a decision is made when "floated"as the grape harvest here is called. Handiwork, experience and intuition - and you can taste it with every sip. And if you ever drive south across the Brenner Pass, you will stop for a break in the wonderful wine tavern of the Unterthiners. SUPERIORE.DE
