KÖFERERHOF SYLVANER VALLE ISARCO, 2018
“Weingut Köfererhof is one of Italy’s smallest and best white wine producers. Just about any grape variety owner Günther Kerschbaumer touches turns to gold. Over the years, he has fashioned remarkably delicious and age worthy wines from the likes of Sylvaner, Riesling, Kerner, Müller-Thurgau and other varieties”
100% Sylvaner from 1.3ha of vineyards at 650m above sea level. Maceration with the skins for 8-10 hours, followed by a soft crushing of the clusters and fermentation in stainless steel vessels. The wine matures 80% in steel and 20% in large oak casks, remaining for 6 months on the lees before release.
Fresh, fruity, full-bodied, and decidedly dry.
Pair with salami, ham, roast fish and fish dishes with sauces, pasta and rice dishes with aromatic vegetable sauces, and goat cheese.
