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
External Reviews for St. Michael Eppan Anger Italy
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.
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.
Sneaks up on you. Not much on the nose, but the palate is fresh and fruity, with peach and melon character and just a hint of mineral. Crisp finish. Drink now.
Displays spicy apple and peach notes, with silky mineral character. Medium-bodied, with clean acidity and a fruity finish. Subtle and layered. 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.
