Features


After ten years of maturation on its lees in 500-liter barrels, Gewürztraminer develops great intensity without losing its freshness. The yeasts give the wine aromas of toasted bread, medlar, honey and dried fruit. Gewürztraminer Pirschschrait explodes in a game of flavors.

Vinification


The bunches are lightly pressed and the must left for a few hours in contact with the skin to enhance the varietal characteristics. After a soft pressing and sedimentation of the must, it ferments at a controlled temperature. After fermentation the Pirchschrait Gewürztraminer matures for 10 years on fine lees. The fine yeasts are gently moved periodically (Battonage).

Pairings


Wonderful to be tasted in absolute solitude, it finds the most worthy combination in shellfish, in the preparation of fish of a certain structure, on foie gras and it is wonderful with Thai cuisine.

Producer


The company was founded in 1907 by the hand of Joseph Hofstatter today the great grandson Martin Foradori Hofstatter with a purely family management carries on the estate with its approximately 50 hectares of vines. The vineyards located between 250 and 800 meters above sea level in Bassa Atesina in the province of Bolzano give the opportunity to grow different varieties of grapes, both white and red. The focus is on the traditional varieties for the area: Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Lagrein and Schiava. Hofstätter wines make their origin recognized. They take on the flavor of the exposure where their grapes were born, of the soils and of the microclimate. The Gewürztraminer del Kolbenhof and the Pinot Nero Vigna S. Urbano di Barthenau are among the first wines from South Tyrol to take the name of their place of origin
