Winemaker Andrea Moser, must surely have the diplomacy skills of Henry Kissinger with his task of managing no less than 650 different grape growers - who together form the co-operative Cantina Kaltern in South Tyrol.
His wines embody an unmistakeable house style of eloquence, clarity. Kaltern was a pioneer of biodynamics and organics in South Tyrol. This vision has cemented their reputation domestically and abroad. Their village location beside a lake high up in the mountains defines the philosophies of high altitude, cool climate viticulture. This has a no small part to play in the hallmarks of purity and clarity of these white wines. For fans of new Zealand aromatics, one could be forgiven for believing that Suid Tyrol whites wrote the book on sensational aromatic whites long before Marlborough was much more than sheep grazing lands.
Jpin us for a relaxed wander through some of their very latest shipment just landed iin our warehouse. They have been carefully matched with the Michelin starred cuisine of Crystal Jade Golden Palace in Paragon...
