Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2012 bottling from Alois Legeder shows the true noble potential of Pinot Grigio when it is shown proper care. From the great wine making area of Trentino-Alto Adige, which is in the cooler North-Eastern area of Italy, it is a brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Richly flavored in the mouth, with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish.

Alois Lageder produces four different groups of wines: Classic Wines, Single Vineyard Wines, Biodynamics and Estate Wines. Alois Lageder’s wines are directed to a quality-conscious public and are available only in better restaurants and specialist shops. Classic Wines include wines from the traditionally grown grapes of Alto Adige. Single variety white, rosé and red wines of high quality. Single Vineyard Wines make use of the grapes of selected, individual vineyards, separately vinified. The characteristic features of each particular place and exposure find resonant expression. The ‘beta delta’ wines are made from certified organic grapes from vineyards that are farmed according to biodynamic methods of viticulture (Greek: βios and δinamikòs). Estate Wines are the flagship wines of Alois Lageder. Grapes from exceptional locales and exposures are carefully selected according to rigorous standards. They mature in barriques of French oak into fine, complex wines. Their quantity is limited by nature itself. Read less

Christmas 2013, Binny's. Super Bowl party. I hope to get a taste (sharing with no one) of bottle #2 in the cellar. Bottle #2, went with us to Power's house, 3/22/14, again said the Wine Nazi, "No wine for you".

Light-bodied and brilliantly-hued, the Lageder Pinot reflects notes of pear, green melon and lemon. Drink this with sushi or fresh salads.

Clean and fresh, this stony white offers a subtle mix of apple, melon and citrus zest notes, set on a creamy palate. Drink now through 2016.
