Description

“Braide Alte” meaning the highest and best single Estate vineyard.  Very tightly space vines growing in marl (highly prized “Flycha” in Collio and “Opoka” in Slovenia) and clay.  Hand harvested. Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Picolit, and Moscato Giallo. Barrel fermented in cool temperature controlled Allier.barrique barrels, where the wine remains to mature for another 8 months on its lees.

Intense straw yellow color, with golden reflections. The bouquet is intense, very complex, with spicy hints. On the palate it is warm, full-bodied, very elegant and complex. It evolves in the glass with the temperature changes.

“This blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Picolit and Moscato Giallo opens with aromas of toasted oak, orchard fruit and a hint of saffron. The structured balanced palate doles out Fuji apple, dried apricot and a touch of ginger alongside tangy acidity. Enjoy through 2022. ” – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
