“Orange blossom, citrus and yellow stone-fruit aromas almost jump out of the glass. The medium-bodied structured palate delivers juicy grapefruit, ripe apricot and crushed Alpine herb alongside vibrant acidity. A mineral note suggesting crushed stone lingers on the close.”
Vinous Reverie Notes
Pacherhof’s natural potential lies in its vineyards, located in the best locations, in gravelly soil, rich in minerals and in special micro climates. In the Eisack valley vineyards are favorably located on the steep slopes of the southern sides of the valley. The soil conditions with their mixture of sand, shingle and gravel, have an advantageous effect on the quality of the grapes. The natural diversity and the uncompromising striving for quality by Andreas Huber form the basis for exclusive white wines full of character. The white wines of the Eisack valley in fact, face difficult but good pre-conditions that essentially form their character. Fresh, chilly nights, warm to hot days and good ventilation contribute to the fruity, subtle aromas of the white wines, and give them their classy style, individual, dry tartness and a taste of attractive robustness. Tasting Notes: Bright straw-yellow colour with greenish reflections. The bouquet is pleasinglyfruity with impressions of white peach and grapefruit, together with whiteflowers and minerals, fresh herbs. On the palate it is full, juicy, lively, with anharmonious acidity and white stone fruit flavors. Long and mineral finish. Pairings: Ideal with appetizers, light starters and grilled fish. It pairs well also withasparagus recipes, herbs risotto, egg and mushroom dishes.
