The grapes to produce Pinot Bianco “Moriz” Alto Adige DOC Tramin for this wine were harvested in small bins and then gently pressed off to steel tanks where the must was allowed to ferment at a controlled temperature of 19°C, without malolactic conversion. 80% of Pinot Bianco “Moriz” Alto Adige DOC Tramin was aged in stainless steel and 20% in large oak casks of 30 to 40 hectolitres, imparting subtle oak complexity.
Moriz Pinot Bianco is sourced from vineyards planted between 250 and 550 metres above sea level, in the calcareous clay and gravel soils common to the area of Sella near Tramin. The name of this wine comes from the patron of Sella, Saint Mauritius.
