Elena Walch David Mcmurdy. bommarito

wines from the alto adige region of italy
once part of the austro hungarian empire so very germanic in appearance

Elena Walch Pinot Grigio 2013  very round nose, you think its going to be more round on the palate but it has lots of acidity.

Gewurztraminer 2013  beautiful nose, spicy, honeyed some clove and spice ... some viscosity but not overly heavy

Schaiva 2013... my first time trying this grape varietal... said to be the lightest skinned red grape.. the term means slovakian because the thought the grape may have originated there  for a light skinned grape it has some complexity.. said to be the winter rose for the locals..

Wilhem Walch Prendo Pinot Noir Dolomiti 2012  darker red than the last red..slightly brickish.. light dried fruit and cranberry... not as earthy as some... good finish
