In the past, when South Tyrol was still a land of red wines, the hilly area around the Plötznerhof above Boymont Castle offered a chance
to the Pinot Bianco grape. The meeting of the bleak limestone soil with the heat-retaining, quartz-rich porphyry rock and the cool mountain winds mean that this small, largely dry patch of earth offers ideal conditions for a Pinot Bianco with considerable depth of soul – then as now.
The wine offers a complex aroma spectrum with scents of green apple, pears and peaches paired with fine citrus nuances, floral hints and almond touch. On the palate this elegant Pinot Blanc is refreshingly fruity and finesse-rich with a salty finish.
