The Kolbenhof Gewürztraminer is characterized by sumptuous fruit. Deep golden yellow in color with green reflexes, on the nose it is reminiscent of ripe apricot and peach intermingled with exotic fruits such as lychee, mango and passion fruit. The fruit characteristics follow through on the palate; full-bodied, luscious but dry, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity finishing elegant, dry and aromatic.
Hofstatter Gewurztraminer Kolbenhof
Founded by Joseph Hofstätter a century ago, the estate comprises extensive vineyards with five historic manor houses located on either side of the Adige Valley. The most important of these is Barthenau, home of the famous Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero- a result of Paolo Foradori’s recognition of the estate’s potential for world-class Pinot Noir. Today, Joseph’s grand nephew, Martin Foradori-Hofstätter, passionately maintains a delicate balance between tradition and innovation, producing wines of exceptional character and type.
