St. Michael Eppan Anger Italy 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Light green lustres run through the straw colour of this wine, whose aroma is rich in fruits, mostly pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste.

Light, with a small bite at the end. A touch creamy.

The color is a lively light golden yellow. Citrus aromas - primarily lemon and lime - are complemented by great minerality and yeasty notes. A bit of honey emerges over a bit of time and with some swirling. The mouthfeel is rich but not heavy with a solid acidity and some bitterness. Lemon, minerality, and honey, as well as stone fruits, fill the palate. A long, pleasant finish. See more about this wine and others at: www.winedinewith.us

The Y-shaped valley formed by the confluence of the Adige and Isarco rivers is the source of Italy's northern-most winemaking regions, the Alto Adige, from where Roger Clemens could throw a ball to Austria! Here St Michael-Eppan (Eppan is German for the Italian Appiano, a terroir favored for white grape varieties) produces a Pinot Grigio that is pale straw in color, has soft citrus and mineral flavors and finishes with spritely acidity. Perfect for fish and summer picnics.

From the Classico line of co-operative winery in northern Italy, here is a fresh and nicely aromatic expression of Pinot Grigio. Yoursquo;ll recognize tones of Golden Delicious apple, pear and zesty citrus.

Lime, lemon blossom, and a nice mineral quality describe this wine. Lightweight, but with well-integrated acidity, it makes a safe match for seafood, vegetables and white meat.

Pretty aromas of sliced white peach follow through to a full-bodied palate, with bright, lemony fruit and a long, crisp finish. A racy style. Drink now.

This cooperative of more than 350 members has access to some of the best vineyards in Alto Adige. The vines are planted on calcareous, gravelly soils and enjoy warm days and cool nights, allowing the grapes to fully ripen without losing acidity. The 2008 vintage, with persistent rain into August, was potentially disastrous, but favorable weather before harvest, low yields and careful work in the cellar allowed winemaker Hans Terzer to craft a complex and balanced wine.

Alto Adige, ItalySt Michael-Eppan Pinot Grigio is an excellent example of this varietal from the Alto Adige region in the northeast of Italy. The innovative St Michael-Eppan winery is considered one of the best in South Tyrol and indeed in all of Italy. Founded in 1907, the winery now owns 350 hectares of vineyards. Gambero Rosso awarded it "Best Italian Winery of the Year" in 2000 and has named master winemaker Hans Terzer one of the "Best Ten Master Winemakers in the World." The St Michael-Eppan wines are certainly worthy to be called wine gems. This one received a 90-point rating from Wine Spectator for the 2008 vintage and was ranked #70 in the WS Top 100 Wines of 2009!St Michael-Eppan Pinot Grigio is straw yellow in color with a nose of pears, apples, floral and mineral notes. It is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, good structure and rich flavors of apples, pears, peaches and citrus. The wine is well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 3-5 years. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasing finish.Enjoy St Michael-Eppan Pinot Grigio with filet of sole, grilled chicken, fruit salads and mild cheeses.
