With a name synonymous with the Alto Adige region, Franz Haas produces a serious Pinot Grigio.
The grapes for this wine were grown in hillside vineyards on high slopes around the village of Montagna. These vineyards, which were ‘experimental’ when Franz first planted them because of a law prohibiting plantings at such an altitude, are now legal since the law changed in 2010. The lower yields and the longer growing season at such altitudes produces wines of greater complexity and intensity. The nose is fragrant with floral aromas, honey, sage, and almonds. The palate is pure and elegant with a wonderful balance and length.
