The wine year 2018 on the Mount Juval began with a normal climate evolution and a regular growth of our vines.
The following months until the late summer where characterized by a fast growth. In June we estimated to start the harvest by the end of September until the mid of October depending on the wine grape variety. But given to the occasionally very hot days the grapes were ripe 15 days before their time.
The watering, granted by 500 years old irrigation channels, obviated to the low rainfalls in July and August and avoided the draught stress in the vines.
Observing carefully the level of ripeness we managed to get very close to a degree of ripeness that supported the mineral stile and the elegance of our wine.
Dear customers and friends – we too have to deal with the climate change and its challenges. We try to adapt as good as we can and to adopt cultivating methods to make our wine-growing still more ecologic, saving the resources as much as possible.
For the vine year 2018 we are very proud to present fresh, crystalline wines with a good aging potential.
Our range of wines Glimmer 2019 has been widened by the variety PIWI- Johanniter which underlines the mineral character. Both Müller Thurgau and Pinot Blanc are crystalline and extremely accessible wines.
The wines Riesling-of 2018 - Gletscherschliff and Unterortl, result to be fruity, with a variegated fragrance and, after a year of bottle aging, the typical Riesling of the territory, „Weingarten Windbichel“ 2017, frees its typical aromas with strength and a delicate acidity in the mouth.
This year our wine cooperative presents as a novelty the Castel Juval Pinot Rosé. An ambitious, classic rosè wine, derived from Pinot Noir grapes of the „Kasten“- mansion in Castelbello. Salmon color, stimulating, fruity with a variegated fragrance, seducing.
