Terlan Pinot Bianco Classico 2011
Editorial Reviews for Terlan Pinot Bianco Classico
A bit heathery on the nose with stony white fruit recalling white peach and melon and a gently flinty top note. On entry this shows bright acids and a nice early streak of sweet apple fruit While kind of light bodied in the mouth, this has lovely depth with super precise and fresh fruit, and laser like focus right through the strict salty mineral note on the long finish. 89pts
A bit heathery on the nose with base notes of sweet stone fruit, white peachy and a bit melony. With bright acids on entry, one finds a streak of sweet apple fruit across the palate that's framed with a taut salty, mineral tone on the long, laser like finish. This lacks a bit of flesh but makes up for it with impressive depth and super precise flavors. 92pts
Very pale yellow color. Clear. Quite fruity bouquet, slightly citrus. Quite fruity on the palate. Acid that I love. Some lime hints. Very light and easy to sip--not terribly substantive--refreshing is a good word. Probably more of an apperitif than a meal mate. We'll see--grilled chicken for dinner tonight. US$16.99 at Wine Club
3/09 - Had at Hungry Mother in Cambridge at the Slow Foods Boston Pork & Bean Dinner. Was great! Was 2004 though.

Wine Tasting NotesWith wonderful aromas of apple cider, chalk and lemon zest, this clean and focused wine expands on the palate to reveal warm apple crisp, clove and quince nuances. Possessing a long, concentrated citrus finish, this wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.
In Terlano, where the winemaking tradition dates back more than 2,000 years, mild, Mediterranean type microclimatic conditions impart unique characteristics to the wines. Located in Alto Adige's Dolomite Mountains in the foothills of the Alps, Terlano's distinctive location and extraordinary terroir are the key to the development of these stunning wines. To insure the highest standards of quality, Terlano compensates their growers for the quality of their grapes, not the quantity. And in the vineyards, emphasis has been placed on reducing yield in favor of producing more concentrated fruit. These factors combined with the cool evening temperatures contribute to the wines' enhanced quality. This wine pairs perfectly with roasted pork, shellfish and egg-based sauces or as a charming cocktail beverage.
