      Blauburgunder Rosé Alto Adige DOC 2019

      With its fertile soils on sunny and partly very steep slopes at an altitude of up to 700m, the Vinschgau Valley (the upper part of the Etsch Valley) offers ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Stimulating, fresh bouquet of raspberries and wild strawberries. Lively, very fresh and with the elegance typical of the grape variety.

      Vinschgauer Weißburgunder Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Sparkling light yellow with green reflexes. Clear, very wide scent of apple, citrus, meadow herbs and some pear fruit, rich on the palate and with a tight freshness and invigorating fruit acidity that is powerful for the high altitudes of the Vinschgau Valley. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright straw yellow. Elegant and inviting nose, marked by cool minerality, delicate flint, light smoke, then delicate quince and golden apple. On the palate very juicy, mineral, with many layers and pressure, brilliant progression, salty in the final." Falstaff

      "Franz Pratzner's Falkenstein 2018 Alto Adige Valle Venosta Pinot Bianco is luminous, light and packed with authentic Northern Italian character. These wines from Alto Adige, especially the Pinot Bianco grape, show a vivid level of brilliance and focused aromatic intensity that is something to behold. You get crisp notes of pear, melon, citrus and crushed stone. The wine is light and fresh, yet the finish is long and polished. Dial up some raw oysters for this one. The wine offers terrific value."

      Sparkling light yellow with green reflections. Clear, very wide bouquet of apple, citrus, meadow herbs and some pear fruit, rich on the palate with a punchy, taut freshness and invigorating fruit acidity for the high altitudes of the Vinschgau. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Delicate bright golden yellow. Discreet aromas of pear compote, lime blossom, toasted almonds and fresh grapefruit. Taut structure, finely meshed, with gripping minerality in interplay with juicy acidity, invites the next sip." Falstaff

      "This generous yet lively dry pinot blanc has an expressive nose that's brimming with candied citrus. Very good depth on the medium-full palate with a positive touch of tannin supporting the very satisfying finish." James Suckling

      "From vintner Franz Pratzner, the Falkenstein 2019 Alto Adige Valle Venosta Pinot Bianco opens to a reductive personality on first nose with a fleeting hint of flint or matchstick. Following a few moments in the glass, it opens to reveal a much wider and more complex bouquet. Closed in a screw-cap bottle, the wine reveals crisp citrus, crunchy pear and crushed oyster shell. It shines with golden luminosity from the glass. The wine's texture is especially silky and smooth." Robert Parker

      Vinschgauer Gewürztraminer Alto Adige DOC 2020

      Dry warmth during the day and refreshing coolness at night - ideal conditions for a Gewürztraminer that is leaner and fresher at Weingut Falkenstein than is otherwise known from South Tyrol. Bright yellow. On the nose, ripe but never exuberant aromas of dried fruits, honey, a little scent of roses. Medium-bodied on the palate and extremely drinkable due to its relatively low residual sweetness. The long fermentation on the natural yeasts ensures a balanced and lean appearance here.

These wines, refined in this way, are then released in small quantities as "Private Reserve" to selected retailers and the gastronomy sector, thus demonstrating the impressive maturation potential of their wines, which are aged for 10 months on the fine lees.

      Medium strong light yellow. Complex nose of pome fruit and lychee, the further 6 years of bottle ageing have given the wine a wonderful fullness and depth. We are thrilled by the freshness and power that this Riserva radiates today. In the final, an animating minerality with a pleasantly smoky component. SUPERIORE.DE

      Vinschgauer Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2019

      Riesling is the specialty of the Pratzner family: Radiant straw yellow with golden reflections. Subtle nose of flint, some lime, white flowers and with salty hints. On the palate, a precise acidity that vibrates finely on the tongue and then pulls the wine tight and fresh into the long, juicy final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, bright straw yellow. In the nose elegant, with great citrus tones, after wet stone, reminiscent of cold smoke, in the aftertaste after apricots and white flowers. Taut on the palate with elegant acidity, spreads across the tongue with a fine fruit core, vertical, with traction, long final." Falstaff

      "The complex nose of apricot and smoke pulls you into this simultaneously succulent and elegant dry riesling that has plenty of power, but also excellent balance and a long, pineapple and wet-stone finish." James Suckling

      "The Falkenstein 2019 Alto Adige Valle Venosta Riesling (closed in a screw-cap bottle) is a wine of energy and electricity. It offers a lot of varietal personality with a tight embroidery of citrus and stone fruit that is interlaced with smoke, crushed stone, honeycomb and a touch of natural rubber. The wine is authentic and true - both to the grape and its northern Italian roots - and you shouldn't underestimate its pretty complexity." Robert Parker

      "I love the fragrant red-fruit, red-beet and herb-liqueur aromas of this medium-bodied, Alpine pinot noir that's got so much mineral freshness and generous fine tannins. Serious length and the balance to age well."

      "The Falkenstein 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Nero shows focus and sharpness with a slender and silky overall approach. This expression of the Burgundian grape offers bright primary fruit with wild cherry and cassis, but there are savory touches too, with light spice, earth and toasted cumin seed.

On the palate, very convincing fruit-acid play with a lot of tension and depth, an impressive minerality on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From far-northern Alto Adige, this is a Riesling of great harmony and suppleness, ideally ripe with intriguing aromas of apricot and bok choy. Slate soils assure a strong minerality on a very dry palate with sleek acidity. Subtle and smooth, it plays up to its food pairings." Decanter

    • "Alte Rebe" Vinschgauer Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2018

      “Alte Rebe” Vinschgauer Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Franz and Bernadette Pratzner planted their first Riesling grapes more than 30 years ago. The small plot yields just 1,500 bottles per year. The primary rock soil, the dry warmth during the day and the cool nights provide excellent conditions for Vinschgau Riesling to thrive on a steep southern slope between 550 and 900 metres.

      Brilliant golden yellow. Aromas of peach and apple combine in the bouquet with a well-dosed portion of minerality. Complex and multi-layered on the palate with yellow fruits, spices and lime. The harmonious overall picture of this exceptional wine is framed by a vibrant acidity and wonderful freshness, which will ensure a long life and further refinement in the bottle. Happy the one who can get hold of a few bottles of it! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Radiant intense straw yellow. Opens with slightly ripe mineral notes, then juicy peach, some orange. Shows nice play on the palate, spreads out with lots of juicy fruit, fine acidity, long finish." Falstaff

      "Tons of lemon balm and a hint of lemon curd, but also plenty of white and yellow-peach aromas, pulling you inexorably into this powerful, concentrated dry riesling that has great mineral freshness at the bone-dry, very long finish." James Suckling

    • "Phileo" Vinschgauer Weißburgunder Alto Adige DOC 2017

      “Phileo” Vinschgauer Weißburgunder Alto Adige DOC 2017

      The name "phileo" is based on the first name Filomena of the mother of the current owner Franz Pratzner. She played a major role in shaping Weinhof Falkenstein, which is why a selection from the best Pinot Blanc vineyards was created for the first time in 2016 and will henceforth bear her name.

      This spontaneously fermented Pinot Bianco sets standards - in its creaminess, its present acidity and minerality and with its great ageing potential. With its delicate apple aromas and subtle vanilla and citrus notes, it is a benchmark for what is probably the most famous white grape variety in the region! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, elegant light gold. In the nose with a fine fragrance of light honey, orange peel and ripe pear, discreetly of cream, in the aftertaste of candied lemon zest, light herbal spice. On the palate full, warm-hearted and with a lot of melting, spreads great over the tongue, with well-integrated acidity, taut and yet elegant, remains present for a long time in the finish." Falstaff

      "Burgundian-style winemaking often doesn't work well for dry pinot blanc, but this has stunning integration of fruit and fine oak with touches of coconut and candied orange peel. Really concentrated and long, but also so clean and precise." James Suckling

    About the winemakersWeingut FalkensteinTrentino-Alto Adige
    Weingut Falkenstein

    Winery with view. One looks far down into the valley at Naturns in Vinschgau. Tiny the houses, the Adige meanders like a narrow blue-green band under the towering, mostly snow-covered mountains. As beautiful as it is at the Vinschgauer Sonnenberg, the work in the steep, terraced vineyards is as laborious. Handcrafted in countless hours.

    This vineyard used to be a fruit farm. After visits to the Wachau, which impressed Franz Pratzner very much, he and his wife Bernadette switched completely to viticulture in 1989. The Wachauer influence is still noticeable today in the assortment, because his favourite is the Riesling. Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon blanc, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir complete the range.

    If one sees the massive rocks of the Ötztal Alps in the background, one cannot believe that there are on average 315 sunny days here. The dry primary rock soil and the sunny southern location therefore offer the best conditions for the closely planted vines in steep terraces between 550 and 900 m above sea level. 10-12,000 vines per hectare in Guyot education, with 4-5 different clones of each grape variety planted to suit the soil.

    Approximately 90,000 bottles of wine per year come from about 12 hectares of vineyards. In addition to the production of white wines with a focus on Riesling, a small quantity of Pinot Noir is also cultivated. Another speciality of the house are pure grappas and noble brandies.

    Franz and Bernadette Pratzner are fully committed to manual work, since 2003 all wines are vinified in the new cellar. The architecture of the cellar fulfils the wish of the old family to unite with the new, and so a rock cellar was created next to the modern part, where today the white wines mature in large 10-15 hl wooden barrels. Also here a little influence from the Wachau, the barrels of acacia wood. Meanwhile the two daughters Magdalena and Michaela support their parents. And just as Franz brought ideas from "good old Austria", Magdalena followed with ideas from his internship in Australia. There she was fascinated by the whole grape fermentation of the Pinot Noir and successfully realized it with her Vinschgauer Blauburgunder.

    The wines of the Pratzner family are now among the finest in South Tyrol, numerous awards at home and abroad decorate the walls, from the coveted tre bicchieri of Gambero Rosso to the 5 grapes of Bibenda to high scores in Wein-Plus and Falstaff. SUPERIORE.DE
