Queen of the North: Elena Walch

Elena Walch is one of the best white winemakers in northern Italy. Prior to venturing into wine, she was working as an architect in Milan. She married into a winemaking family and the rest was history. She started producing wine in the late 1980's and completely re-invigorating the region. Today, she manages the spectacular sixty-acre estate with the help of her two daughters.  

This case includes 2 bottles each of: 

Name: Elena Walch 2018 Gewurztraminer ‘Kastelaz’
Country: ITALY

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

93, James Suckling
Ludwig is a floral and fragrant Pinot with notes of cherries, redcurrants and some pepper. On the palate, it is medium-bodied, elegant and has a resounding freshness.

Country: ITALY

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.
