Alto Adige DOC Valle Isarco/Eisacktal Grüner Veltliner 2020 Thomas Dorfmann
In 2018 Thomas Dorfmann left his job as chief winemaker in one the most prestigious estates of the alpine Alto Adige region to take over his father's plots of terracings along the steep mountain sides in Feldthurns to follow his dream: take care of the vines, make wine, and sell it directly.
Some oenologists revere Thomas Dorfmann as a genious of winemaking - certainly his competence and experience help him make the best of his grapes, which grow in ideal positions, in the Valle Isarco or Eisacktal, Alto Adige’s most northern wine growing area. The very small production stemming from only 2 hectares of land is high-end artisan, if not pure art!
The cool mountain air meets the warm air rising upwards from the Mediterranean. The soil is rocky, the position sun exposed. Dorfmann's wines are super-territorial and super-elegant!
Softly pressed, this wine is a pale yellow with hints of green. It offers a dry, full structure, peppery and spicy notes, fresh grass anice seed and herbs. lots of texture, but smooth saltiness and minerality to balance. Perfect aperitif, or with chicken and fish dishes, great with Oriental cuisine. A great representation of this varietal!
