From the Cellar: Terlan!
7 Decades of Amazing White Wines
Heather, candle wax and a hint of incense burst from the glass with an intensity and focus that is compelling, joining aromas of sweet nectarine and pineapple fruit topped with hints of lemon oil. Cool and focused in the mouth with flavors driven by very well integrated acids wrapped in a lovely creamy, leesy edge yielding a round and voluptuous texture. A touch of raw almond adds complexity as this turns silky and elegant on the back end with lovely minerality and sweet apple and pineapple fruit on the finish. 93pts
Deep and aromatic with huge aromas of cut grass, gooseberry, passionfruit and salty minerality. This is so precise, fresh and bright on the palate with a little leesy roundness adding a touch of richness around an ethereal core. Superbly balanced with a touch of mouthgrab on the backend leading to a long finish rich with hints of pineapple, a diesel nuance, and tart apple fruit. World class Sauvignon Blanc 94pts
Nuts, apples, flowers, pumpkin, apricot, baking spice, dried apples and a hint of butter, come together on the nose which has a bit of a warm vintage character. Smooth, rich and clear on the palate this is very nervous and vibrant for a wine of its size. Subtly perfumed pear fruit with a touch of nuttiness and warm wood tones grace the long, slightly peachy and lime toned finish. 92pts
