In Terlan, the wine-making tradition dates back more than 2000 years. Mild microclimatic conditions give the wines certain unique characteristics, thus adding a special flavor to them.
Terlan’s unique position at the foot of Mount Tschöggel is a key to the development of the vineyards. The southfacing slopes are ideal for grape growing. The porphyry rocks accumulate warmth and the porous soil allows the water to drain, keeping the soil dry around the roots of the wines.
Quarz is a complex, delicately fruity, minerally Sauvignon Blanc, which has been produced as a varietal wine since 1956. In the Terlano DOC area, this grape variety has long been grown with excellent results in the oldest vineyards
It has intensive straw yellow color with a delicate green shimmer. Nose offers ripe fruit aromas of apricot, mandarin and passion fruit mingle with elements of elderberry, nettle and mint. Fruitiness continues on the palate in combination with a fine acidity. The wine scores with a excellent structure and a minerally but at the same time very long and aromatic finish.
Food pairing: With clams, crabs or cooked white fish without sauce.
