"The Grand Cru Hofberg is one of the greatest Mosel vineyards. In 1868 the vineyards of this hill were classified by the Prussians as an extraordinary place to make great Rieslings. The main part of the vineyards are situated on the Mosel river, but not the Hofberg. It's a lovely quiet side-valley on the Dhron river with weathered Devonian slate in mixture with quartzite. Riesling vines are today 30 to 65 years old and some are still ungrafted." —importer
"White wine from the Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. It originates in vineyards on sunny hillsides with poor granite soils. Citrus and slightly tropical notes. Full bodied with good structure, fresh and mineral. Long finish with the light bitter citrus taste of the Alvarinho variety." —winemaker
"100% Chenin Blanc. Silex Noir is named for the black-flint soils characteristic of two parcels totalling 3.7 hectares that go into this bottling. These sites lie on hilly south-southeast-exposed terrain, below the plateau of cooler clay soils above from whence comes Pinon's Trois Argiles bottling, but with the same underpinning of classic Vouvray tuffeau (chalky limestone) about a meter and half down. The Silex Noir vines are sunnier and warmer and more humid; botrytis tends to develop here, so harvest here happens ahead of the Trois Argiles. The vines average 40 years old. They are farmed organically." - Winery
"Golden-hued and medium-bodied, this wine is a superlative expression of Garganega, the indigenous Northern Italian grape varietal used to make Soave Classico. With white blossoms and delicate fruit on the nose – golden apple, pear, a tinge of ripe lemon -- it features stony minerality, bright, refreshing acidity and lingering notes of honey." —winemaker
"Enticing and delicate aromas of tropical fruits, wild flowers, green apple and citrus peel exude from the glass. The palate offers white peach, green melon and grapefruit complementing a crisp acidity." —winemaker
"Friulano DOC is a very special wine, a splendid example of a wine-growing young and daring, capable of producing bottles really intriguing. This Friulano DOC produced by Tenuta Luisa is a wine full of character and typical of the areas where it is produced."
