  4. Moriz Pinot Bianco Alto Adige DOC

Although the Pinot family of grapes traces its origins to France, these grapes have been grown in the Alto Adige since antiquity and are considered local varieties by those who live in the area.  The vines that produce Tramin's Moriz Pinot Bianco give lower-than-normal yields for the area and produce concentrated fruit.  The body and structure of the Pinot Bianco grapes are enhanced by a period of lees-ageing a small period of time resting in oak barrel.  The name Moriz refers to the patron saint of the village of Söll, which is perched in the hills above tramin and sources the fruit for this marvelous wine.

Tasting Notes

Moriz Pinot Bianco shows a silvery-yellow hue with green highlights.  The nose is fresh and restrained with light aromas of apple blossom, pear, and wet stone.  On the palate the Pinot Bianco shows its inherent fleshiness, while demonstrating the laser focus, pure fruit aroma, and minerality associated with Italy's Alto Adige.  Aromas of green apple and ripe Bosc pear blend with racy acidity and texture from lees ageing and gentle oak exposure.  The finish is long, well-defined, and dry.

Food Pairing

Although the rich texture and bright aroma makes Moriz Pinot Bianco ideal as an aperitif, this wine can be easily enjoyed alongside a number of light starter dishes, summer salads, lake or river fish, and heartily-prepared white meat dishes.
