Winemaker Notes

Brilliant, intensive yellow is the color of our white blend Beyond the Clouds. In the nose, a complex, beguiling play of aromas unfurls with fruity nuances of exotic fruits such as pineapple, notes of blossoms and flowers, of rose petals and light toast aromas. Dense and complex, the wine enthuses on the palate: with fullness and structure, creamily soft and elegant, stimulatingly fresh and juicy with a discreetly incorporated, modest note of wood and a long reverberation of taste.

 

96 Points, James Button, Decanter (2020 Vintage)

I've asked fifth-generation Julia Walch on several occasions about the blend for Beyond The Clouds, but she steadfastly refuses to give away the secret, other than to confirm that it's ‘up to 85% Chardonnay’. 2000 was the first release and it has since risen to become one of Alto Adige's most noteworthy whites. The grapes are all picked on the same day and co-fermented in French oak barriques, one-third new. Still woody, it's clean and fresh with an intense stony core of pithy pink grapefruit, apricot skin, nectarine, and some smoky, flinty notes. Vertical and with great balance, it combines glacial freshness with a creamy, fragrant finish of apricot and jasmine. Older vintages have developed lovely exotic yellow fruit characters, and you can expect the same here. Loads of potential.
