Name: Elena Walch 2018 Gewurztraminer ‘Kastelaz’
92 Points, Vinous
Golden-tinged straw. Smoked bacon fat, papaya, mango, orange oil and grapefruit nectar on the nose and in the mouth. Smooth, rich and ripe, with good finishing cut and clarity, not to mention a hint of alcoholic warmth. Lovely, big wine that will have every Gewürz lover swooning at first taste.
Name: Elena Walch 2016 Pinot Nero Ludwig
Name: Elena Walch 2015 Lagrein Riserva
92 Points, James Suckling
This wine is garnet in colour and has notes of cranberry, cherry, chocolate and tobacco. The tannins are velvety, fresh, spicy and there is a good mineral quality to this wine.
