Description Build A Case!
 
The Augustinian Canons Regular monastery of Neustift is located in the northern most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft � 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth watering acidity found in our wines produced from the typical white Eisack Valley grape varieties. The long drawn out ripening period extending well into the autumn is crucial. The most widely grown vines in our vineyards around Vahrn just north of Brixen are Sylvaner, Kerner, Gew�rztraminer and Veltliner.

The monastery also owns vineyards in the warm central region of South Tyrol which supply the red grapes. They include the full bodied, savoury Lagrein from the Mariaheim vineyard in Bolzano/Bozen and red wines from the Marklhof estate in the cool rolling hills of Girlan to the south of Bolzano where the grapes are harvested, crushed and the wines matured. The wines include Vernatsch, Pinot Noir and the lusciously sweet Rosenmuskateller ('Rose Muscat', the name deriving from the variety's typical scent of roses).

With over 850 years of experience coupled with state of the art winemaking technology, top class expertise and the enormous enthusiasm the wines generate among our employees, we succeed in producing wines bursting with flavour and varietal character year after year, to the joy of wine lovers worldwide.

TASTING NOTES: The color goes from pale straw yellow with green highlights to pale gold. Strong aromas of apple, aromatic herbs and tropical fruits. Full minerally and almost salty on the palate, it is very eloquent in its deep, mouthfilling finish.
