Soll Pinot Grigio 2015
This Pinot Grigio from Kellerei Kaltern has a straw yellow color with light green rim. In the nose pear compote, some nuts, roasted almonds and vanilla. On the palate dry, medium-full bodied with wood notes (from barriques) and a harmonious finish.
Summer 2015 was characterized by higher than average temperatures and lack of rainfalls. The weather situation induced us to an early harvest epoch thoughts. The heat, however, did slow the grapes development therefore we had an average harvest’s epoch which began on September 1 and ended on October 27. We immediately recognize the potential of an absolutely promising vintage when we saw the grapes quality brought to the cellar. The whites wines show enveloping and caressing fruit features.
Vineyard: Northeast facing slope at 250 – 300 meters above sea level, a rather breezy vineyard that has a relatively warm micro-climate, despite its altitude; this combination allows a high degree of ripeness without danger of Botrytis. Heavy soils, primarily loamy, weathered chalk.
