St. Michael Eppan Pinot Grigio Anger - Fallwind 2022

Depending on the soil and microclimate, pinot grigio ranges from a simple everyday wine to absolute top cuvée. The warm, sun-drenched vineyards of the Anger sites, with their loamy limestone gravel soils, are a textbook example. The Anger Alto Adige Pinot Grigio has a noble structure, beautiful balance and fine acidity, making it an absolute pleasure to drink. The color of the wine is pale yellow with a slight green glint. On the nose, it has aromas of pear and honeydew melon. The wine is creamy and at the same time fresh and has a long finish.
The various vineyards are located between 400 and 430m high near the village center of St. Michael facing south and southeast. (See photos) The terroir consists of limestone gravel. Manual harvesting of the Pinot Grigio takes place in mid-September.Fermentation and malolactic fermentation of the majority (70%) takes place in stainless steel tanks and the rest (30%) in oak barrels. The two wines are combined in March.
