Origin: The white grape variety SOLARIS is a cross between (Seyve Villard 5-276 x (x Riesling Ruländer)) and (Zaraya Severa x Muscat Ottonel). The species is characterized by a good resistance to downy and powdery mildew. Due to its resistance this grape variety does not require any chemical sprayings.
Area requirements: The variety SOLARIS is difficult to compare with other different grape varieties. It is something special. In South Tyrol it grows in limey, moisture retaining soils over 700mt above sea level. Our SOLARIS grows in an alpine meadow on the Mendola at 1200-1300mt above sea level. The vines were planted in 2008.
Yield: At this altitude from one shoot there are only one or two small grape clusters with very tiny berries. To achieve optimal wine quality we restrict the grape /vine load to 0.5 kg. We need the grapes from at least two vines to produce one bottle of wine.
Maturity date – Harvest: Mid to late October
Most Sugar- weight: 17° – 19° KMW
Wine: A bouquet of complex aromas of lemon, pepper muscat, pineapple, honey, peach, fine mountain hay and wild herbs. The wine is concentrated, mineral with a determined acidity, great power combined with a harmonic structure ending in a long finish. Excellent full-bodied wine aperitif. Pairing with white meat and well seasoned fish, shell fish and all salads. Also ideal with Asian dishes.
