"This is delightful, with amazing intensity and unique smoothness. Aromas of honey, peach and cantaloupe linger on the finish, with a fresh note of mountain flower. This is a simple wine, but a perfectly executed one. " (08/12)
"Made from 100% Pinot Grigio, the grapes are harvested in mid-September. For fermentation, they are in 50% steel tanks, and 50% big oak barrels. The time of aging in barrels is 5 years, and then an additional 2 months in bottle before release. It is a white wine characterized by amazing full-bodiedness and exceptional elegance. Its fruit aromas result from the rich soils of the Punggl Vineyard in the South of the South Tyrolean village Margreid. A well-balanced proportion between acidity and softness enable this Pinot to fully express its characteristic features."
"The vinification of the grapes, the reduction of acids and the wine's storage are carried out 50% in oak barrels, 50% in steel tanks. This wine is highly recommended to be served together with a vast range of starters, fish,
white meat or as an aperitif. The vintage was a dry year with a golden autumn mark 2011. Complex wines with good minerality are showing alpine freshness." - Importer
"The new cellar under construction seems to have not distracted the very young kellermeister Harald Schraffl. The Cantina Nals Margreid has by now established itself among the Olympus of Alto Adige winemaking. Wines, above all whites, ever more representative of the territory, ever more stylistically defined and technically impeccable, are the result of severe selection in the vineyards. The Pinot Bianco Sirmian, the Sauvignon Mantele and the Pinot Grigio Punggl are the pearls of the whites, which are flanked by the reds of the Baron Salvadori line and the Schiava Galea, must-haves for the appellation." Gambero Rosso Guida Vini d'Italia 2011."
"Nals Margreid is a cooperative of about 100 small growers located in the Alto Adige region of Northern Italy. The cooperative was formed in 1985 by the merging of The Cellars Nalles (established in 1932) and Magre-Niclara (established in 1954) - two well-respected entities, both steeped in tradition. While cooperatives are typical in the Alto Adige (where parcels are often small and at high altitudes in mountainous terrain) their goal in joining forces was to unite some of the best wine growers from the Strada del Vino (wine road) of Alto Adige into something of a "dream team". Today, 140 growers cultivate a wide range of local varieties in over150 hectares of vineyards for the Nals Margreid Cellar."
"The vineyards of Nals Margreid are positioned between 200 and 900 meters above sea level, stretching from Nalles in the north to Magre in the south. These locations benefit from both the climactic-barrier protection of the Alps to the North, and the warmth of the Mediterranean influences from the South. Soils are made up of gravel subsoil on the slopes of the mountains, and alluvial soil on the valley floor. Fold in primitive rock such as granite, slate, limestone, gneiss and porphyry and you've got ideal conditions for the growing of premium grapes, and ultimately the production of world-class wines."
"The growers of Nals Margreid use natural methods wherever possible. Parasites and diseases are avoided through ecological means. Vines are trained using the classic pergola trellis, or by using the more modern, lower-yielding Guyot method."
"Winemaker Harald Schraffl oversees the seamless blending of the fruits of a wide variety of vineyards, soils, vines and microclimates in their small winery. Schraffl's vinification philosophy is dominated by the importance of preserving the characteristics that the soils and grape varieties impart to the wines. In addition to the blends, Nals Margreid bottles a handful of vineyard-designate wines from tiny, yet exceptional parcels. Earnest and genuine, these wines reflect the character and attributes of the various Alto Adige sub-zones. This is the first time Nals Margreid wines have been imported into the US." - Importer
