SELECTION CUVÉE BIANCO ANDREAS FALKENSTEINER
(ESTATE PETER ZEMMER)
Origin: This wine, full of character, comes from select, individual vineyards that are stocked with vines that have been refined on slow-growing rootstock and mounted onto wire trellises (Guyot) as well as on pergolas. Under optimal conditions, the grapes of this cuvée grow in the best vineyards at the bottom of the valley around the centre of the Kurtinig, a village on the South Tyrol wine route. The favourable location of the vineyards, the ideal amount of sunlight, and the high levels of ventilation for the wine berries produce grapes of an exceptional quality.
Colour: Straw yellow to golden yellow
Smell: strong bouquet of ripe fruit, great variety of flavours (apricot, tropical fruit, and vanilla)
Taste: strong, balanced, and salty, interesting acidity on the
palate, very harmonious, juicy, and rich with a pleasant fullness.
SELECTION BLAUBURGUNDER ERICH FALKENSTEINER
Origin: Estate St. Daniel – Location Montan in the Bozen Unterland (350 m.a.s.l.), soils of volcanic origin with moraine overlay. Cool microclimate with large temperature differences between day and night.
Colour: Medium depth, garnet red colour. Smell and taste: strong, typical aroma of cherries, red berries, and spices with a softly balanced, medium body with a fine finish. Aging potential: 6-8 years.
BELSTAR PROSECCO D.O.C.
The origins of this extraordinary prosecco lie in the northern Veneto region. It has a straw yellow colour with light green accents and a fruity and floral, fresh and pleasant taste. It is elegant on the palate, slightly soft with a persistent fruity after-taste and floral nuances.
