Erste & Neue
The Erste+Neue winery has been part of the history of the Kaltern wine trade for over 100 years. The 1986 merger of the Erste (“first”) wine co-operative (founded in 1900) with the Neue (“new”) wine co-operative (founded in 1925) produced a South Tyrolean winery that was rich in both tradition and renown. The clue is in the name: the tried and tested is upheld, while there is an openness to innovation. Each individual bottle is proof of this philosophy.
Bright straw yellow with greenish reflexes.
Very fine bouquet, soft notes of apple dominate. Very
straightforward on the palate with an elegant freshness and
minerality and fine structure.
Perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to white or oily fish.
Fermentation at low temperatures in stainless
steel tanks; long storage in contact with the fine yeast to
develop a multi-layered body.
