Buy J Hofstatter Kolbenhof Gewurzt
The Kolbenhof Gewurztraminer is characterised by sumptuous fruit. Deep golden yellow in colour with green reflexes, on the nose it is reminiscent of ripe apricot and peach intermingled with exotic fruits such as lychee, mango and passion fruit. The fruit characteristics follow through on the palate; full-bodied, luscious but dry, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity finishing elegant, dry and aromatic.

This wine is delicious enjoyed in solitude, though it is perfect to accompany shellfish, oysters or foie gras, sophisticated fish dishes.

Producer
Visitors to the headquarters and winery of the Josef Hofstatter estate find themselves in the main square of a bustling large village with the municipal hall, bars and the village church. The winery and offices are accommodated in a grand 16th century edifice, originally built for the Austrian Imperial post coaches and it also housed the ‘Schwarzer Adlerí inn belonging to Martin Foradoriís great aunt. Josef Hofstatter made his first wines in the innís cellars. His nephew Konrad Oberhofer and wife Luise took over the estate in 1942 and it was he who recognised the potential inherent in vineyards. He was the very first in South Tyrol to keep separate the grapes harvested in individual sites and name the resulting wines after the respective vineyards. Konrad Oberhoferís daughter Sieglinde married Paolo Foradori in 1959. Paolo comes from an old-established family of winegrowers in the Adige Valley and owned vineyards in superb locations on the eastern side of the valley opposite Tramin. Since then these vineyards have been administered together with those on the Tramin side of the valley in the family companyís headquarters which still bears the name of the estateís founder, Josef Hofstatter.
