Viognier, Incrocio Manzoni, Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc. Martin Gojer's white blend may not necessarily reflect the quintessence of autochthonous South Tyrolean grape varieties, but it is nevertheless one of the outstanding examples of Italian wine culture characterised by terroir - which does not always have much to do with the grape varieties, but can also have to do with the winemaker's intentions and approach; and with the understanding of how to translate his natural environment into the wine.
Martin Gojer knows his terrain like the back of his hand. Located in the Bolzano basin, it is warmer than many people think (which also justifies the choice to plant Viognier). He enjoys the privilege that his vineyards are exposed to the north and therefore always retain an invigorating freshness even in the warmest years. The cultivation of his porphyry, basalt and granite soils has been biodynamic for some time (he is currently undergoing the Demeter certification process), a fact that is now also impressively reflected in his extremely lively vineyards.
The Caroline - a reference to his daughter - is fermented 40% in wooden tubs and 60% in large wooden barrels. The wine then remains in wood for 10 months before being transferred to concrete vats for a further 12 months. The Caroline is neither fined nor filtered.
