Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof Estate

Located deep in the heart of the Südtirol, the Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof Estate is located in the hamlet of Entiklar, which has been settled since prehistoric times. It is blessed with a centuries-old tradition of winegrowing and the winery itself is named after the 12th Century castle, Castel Turmhof. In 1968, Hilde and Herbert Tiefenbrunner began bottling their wines instead of selling them off premises. Nowadays their son Christof and his wife Sabine run the winery. They are also fully committed to the winegrowing tradition and the principles of the Tiefenbrunner Estate remain the same: to preserve the character of the grape varieties and to grow the highest quality grapes possible. The estate’s wines are characterised by great finesse and elegance, with their distinct freshness of character primarily due to the large differences in diurnal temperature in this particular region, which creates perfect ripening conditions. Around 70% of their production are white wines and each parcel of grapes is matched carefully to the soil type and tended with great care and attention.
Delicate green to light yellow in colour, this wine is a pleasure to drink with its awesome intensity and broad spectrum of aromas: white peach, apricot, spicy, floral notes of jasmine and sage lend it a spectacular degree of finesse. Delicately structured with nice acidity, it has a racy, mineral finish.
Wonderful companion to all sorts of appetizers, seafood, oysters and Asian dishes.
After 4 – 6 hours of maceration of the grapes, fermentation at a constant temperature of 20 °C; maturation with regular batonnage on the lees in large oak casks for 7 months; 70% fermented and aged in stainless steel on the fine lees for 7 months; further maturation of 2 months in concrete vat tanks and 1 year in the bottle.
