Frequent readers of this blog now that I’m a fan of Tenute Loacker. If you’re not familiar with this winery I recommend you to read this article which gives you a quick overview. Ysac is a white wine from Tenute Loacker’s Schwarhof estate in South Tyrol. I found this rather old bottle in my cellar and decided to see whether the wine would still be good or not.
Ysac is manufactured with 60% Silvaner and 40% Müller-Thurgau grapes. All grapes are from certified organic agriculture. Ysac aged in stainless steel tanks. The wine is classified as Alto Adige DOC.
In the glass the wine had a bright straw-yellow color. The bouquet included gooseberry and quince. Alcohol by volume was label listed at 14%.
On the palate the wine was fruity and mineralic. In general this vintage of the Ysac seemed to be a bit flat. Maybe the wine was just too old. Nevertheless the wine was well-bodied. There was a bit of acidity, too. The finish was rather short.
I won’t give a recommendation on this wine yet. I will need to try a newer vintage before I do so. I might do the wine wrong so I’m looking forward to try a 2011 or 2010 vintage of this wine. That’s all for today! I hope you all had a good start to the new year!
