The Jura by Nals Margreid is an elegant and classy interpretation, obtained from vineyards in the municipality of Appiano on dense morainic soils.
At sight it is a brilliant ruby red with a clear transparency and gives off the nose rich hints of strawberries, raspberries and red currants, with earthy and balsamic notes of musk and undergrowth. At the mouthfeel it is full and elegant, with delicate tannins and an aromatic finish of cloves.
Nals-Margreid work with 138 growers who farm 170 hectares in 14 different areas. The vineyards are found stretching from the town of Nals, between Merano and Bolzano in the regions’ North, to Margreid in the sunny South. The fruit provided by these growers (each with an average of 1 hectare) provides winemaker Harald Schraffl with the product from 14 of the most renowned areas in the Sudtirol. Elevations vary between 650 and 3000 feet and all benefit from the triple-whammy that the zone provides for quality viticulture: 300 days of sunshine, the protection of the Alps to the North combined with the warming influence of Mediterranean and big temperature swings between day and night.
