An architect by trade, Elena Walch married into one of the oldest and most significant wine families of the region and brought new, modern concepts to the traditional establishment. Promoting quality and innovation, Elena Walch stood at the head of the Alto Adige quality revolution and has gained local and international esteem for her efforts. Today, the responsibility for the family business is being put into the hands of the daughters, Julia and Karoline Walch, already the fifth generation, who carry on their mother’s philosophy – dedication to terroir and sustainability.
The delicious, fruity Selezione range includes the rich and elegant Pinot Grigio, showing just what this variety can do in the right hands; the nutty, appley Pinot Bianco, a speciality of Alto Adige; the elegant Chardonnay that displays exotic notes, ripe bananas and light floral aromas; the highly aromatic and spicy Gewürztraminer; and the delicate Pinot Nero, which is aged in large wooden barrels (22 hl) made of French oak, and is soft and elegant with hints of spice. The “Cru” (single vineyard) range includes the Sauvignon Blanc Castel Ringberg, which is deliciously aromatic with fine underlying gooseberry fruit and refreshing acidity. The flagship white, Beyond the Clouds, is made from her finest grapes and is predominantly Chardonnay from the Castel Ringberg vineyard. The wine is aged in French oak barriques and undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. A beautiful wine that is intensely floral with fantastic richness and intensity.
