This is a single vineyard wine sourced from Hofstatter’s Barthenau estate. Hofstatter was the first producer in the Alto-Adige to produce single vineyard wines at the equivalent of the grand cru level.

The grapes are harvested in small crates to ensure they arrive at the winery completely intact. Most the grapes are de-stemmed and lightly crushed, leaving around 25% whole and unbruised. The berries, whole clusters and juice are allowed to steep at cool temperatures for one day to extract the maximum of varietal aromas. During the period of fermentation the solid grape parts are kept constantly submerged in the new wine. The maturation in oak casks takes place in two phases. The young wine is kept in small oak casks for 12 months, after which a uniform blend is made. The wine is subsequently matured in one large cask for 8 months, after which it is filled and matured in bottle for further 8 months in the cellars of the Barthenau manor house before release.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Color

    A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, but then opens up in the glass to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Noir origins.
  • Aroma

    The aroma reminiscent of sour cherry and raspberry is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice.
  • Palate

    On the palate it shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity, well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.

“A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color.”


Origins

Mazon and its extraordinary Pinot sites are located opposite Tramin-Termeno on the other side of the valley. These vineyards face toward the evening sun and the Ora wind that travels up the valley into the early evening hours. This keeps demanding Pinot grapes dry and healthy.
