Perlhofer “Crescendo” IGT approx. 60% Vernatsch, 40% split between Lagrein and Merlot
Wine growing area: The three varietals in the Perlhofer grow in three carefully selected vineyards. The grapes favour different soil conditions, making the areas in St. Magdalena, the Upper Etsch and the Lowlands particularly favourable. The Merlot vines prefer warm porphyry soils, those of the Lagrein sandy gravel soils and the Vernatsch vines favour the nutrient-rich loamy soils on slopes. The vines, some of which are more than 50 years old, are trained over trellises and traditional pergola systems and grow at an altitude of 220 – 450 metres.
Vinification: Once the selected grapes have been delivered to the winery, they undergo separate, traditional maceration at a controlled temperature of 28°C for 10 days. After asamblage (blending) the wine is aged in large wooden barrels.
Harvest and Yield: Due to the different varietals and vineyards, the grapes are handpicked as they reach full maturity during October. The yield is 70 hectolitres of wine per hectare.
Reccomended with:: The Perlhofer CRESCENDUS is an excellent accompaniment to grilled fish, light meat dishes and cheese.
