Winemaking

Part of the grapes is fermented after the soft pressing and static decantation in a steel tank at a controlled temperature of roughly 18 °C. 15 percent of the wine is fermented in French Allier oak barriques followed by a malolactic fermentation process. The wine is assembled in the spring.

Our tasting note

This Sauvignon Castel Ringberg has a dense, strong straw- yellow colour. Fruity aromas of gooseberries and papaya and floral notes of elderflower dominate the bouquet. Wonderfully harmonious on the palate with pleasant freshness, an invigorating structure, elegant richness and juicy mineral finish.

Elena Walch

Elena Walch's vineyard in South Tirol is still owned by the family today. The jewels in its crown are the vineyards Castel Ringberg above Lake Caldaro and Kastelaz in Tramin. Both locations offer excellent locations for planting vines. Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Vernatsch, Sauvignon and Cabernet vines grow on the 20 hectares of Ringberg. The 5 hectares in Kastelaz are planted with Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco and Merlot vines. All the wines carry the clear signature of the grower. The wines' identity is the wonderful typicity of their varieties combined with their purity, elegance and finesse. Elena Walch, once a successful architect, now an equally successful winemaker. Her vineyard is one of the elite wine producers in Italy and also enjoys international acclaim and success. Her daughters Julia and Karoline Walch are the fifth generation to take over the family business.
