2015 Terlano Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg (750ml)

Pinot Blanc from Sudtirol, Alto Adige, Italy


Pale straw-gold. Beautiful nose of white stone fruit, lime, lemon verbena, beeswax and minerals; this is an absolutely captivating expression of Pinot Bianco at its best. Then similar flavors on the palate, but richer and riper than usual for this wine, with a long flavorful saline finish that offers repeating floral nuances. Pinot Bianco (Weissburgunder in German) does not get any better than this.

Here's a slightly more accessible wine that gives you a clear view of the beauty and the vast reservoir of untapped potential when it comes to the Pinot Bianco in Alto Adige. The 2015 Alto Adige Terlano Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg is a generous and forthcoming expression that rewards the senses with ample stone fruit, preserved lemon, saffron and mineral tones of dusty chalk or crushed oystershell. This is a medium-weight wine with a mouthfeel that is successful due to the natural density and texture of the fruit in this sunny vintage. The oak elements serve only as framing. Some 70,000 bottles were made.
