Wine Advocate
Elena Walch, 2016 Elena Walch Gewürztraminer 'Kastelaz'

"The Elena Walch 2016 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Kastelaz is a phenomenal wine with the richness and the textural density that is so distinctively crafted at this leading Northern Italian estate. The bouquet is fragrant and bright with an outstanding level of balanced intensity. White flowers, orange blossom, tangerine and sweet honey peel off the top. There is a pleasing vein of mineral dryness that brings the wine back to center. The 2016 vintage is outstanding."
Wine Spectator
Elena Walch, 2016 Elena Walch Gewürztraminer 'Kastelaz'

"A zesty white, powerful for the dry and racy frame, yet finely knit and well-balanced. Offers a silky palate of melon, blood orange granita and honeycomb flavors, with a lasting finish of minerally smoke and spice. Drink now through 2026."
