Pinot Grigio 2013 (screwcap)
Nice clean fresh pure varietal character. Very clean bright inoffensive fresh style. A little too easy.

Pinot Bianco 2013
A bit squeakier on the nose, a little sweeter and broader in the fruit structure, rolls a bit more on the palate. No less fresh and clean.

Castel Ringberg Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Quite ripe guava passion fruit. Great ripeness without being fat, juicy fresh and concentrated varietal notes.

Gewürztraminer 2013
Soapy fresher expression, initially warm but finishing clean. Nice subtle fruit notes.

Rosé 2013 (Pinot Nero, Merlot & Lagrein)
Quite candied and pretty, strawberries and cream. A tad on the sweet side, good fruit fresh balance. Extremely safe wine.

Castel Ringberg Kalterersee 2013 Schiava
Very pretty sweet berry wine nose, exceptionally inviting, sweet and spicy at the same time. Really lovely.

Pinot Nero 2012
Nice and light, very fresh and fruit driven. Good quality.

Lagrein 2013
On the closed side at the moment, but quite pretty. Quite tight at the moment, focused acids and tannins, good length for the quality. Nice personality.

Castel Ringberg Lagrein 2009
Sweet plummy cherry wood notes, a little bit more maderised in a modern way. Far too oaky and sweet.

Ludwig Pinot Nero 2011
More powerful expression of the variety, a lot more classic style. But style very vibrant and fresh, with much more structure and finesse, length too.

Cashmere 2010 Gewürztraminer Passito
Really rich intense floral fruit honeyed nose. Quite thick and sticky, some food freshness and balance. Some mature cheese rind notes.
