Tiefenbrunner Chardonnay Lintaclarus 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite intensely grassy on the nose with strong gooseberry and green plum notes accented with a touch of flint. Round in the mouth with vibrant, though integrated, acids that give this a rather lush feel accentuated by the slightly tropical, mango-tinged fruit. The finish explodes with big ripe fruit tones and while this really does offer nice crispness wrapped in lush fruit, it’s a bit much for my palate. Still, very successful. 90pts

Entiklar is situated in the southern part of South Tyrol (Unterland), where the wine road winds gently through the most attractive vineyards in the region. In this small hamlet, belonging to the village of Kurtatsch, blessed with a centuries-old tradition of winegrowing, there is a castle dating from the 12th century. This, together with the family name to the wine estate, Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof. The loamy, chalky soils and the Mediterranean climate – characterised by a moderate rainfall and a cool evening wind, which produces considerable differences between day and night temperatures – result in the perfect ripening of the cellars where they lend the wine its unmistakable character. A peculiarity of the Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof wine estate is the Müller Thurgau “Feldmarschall von Fenner”, cultivated at 1.000 meters above sea level. Viticulture at this altitude is unique Europe. Read less

The 2008 Pinot Bianco offers up melon, cantaloupe and apricots in a slightly rounder and riper style than the Pinot Grigio. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.

Leuchtend gelb mit grünen Reflexen besticht dieser Wein durch sein breites und ausgeprägtes Bukett nach Brennnesseln, Holunderblüten, grünem Paprika, Salbei und Minze. Ein mineralisch, eleganter Wein, angenehm salzig auf der Zunge und saftig im Abgang.

Leuchtendes Hellgelb, fruchtiges Bouquet, charaktervoll, sauber und gut strukturiert, mit frischer Säure und mittlerem Abgang – ein sehr sortentypischer Chardonnay.

I was frankly disappointed with the wines I tasted from Tiefenbrunner this year. The Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon in particular aren't at the level readers have come to expect from this venerable producer. The 2009 Pinot Bianco sparkles on the palate with beautifully articulated fruit, well-defined aromatics and lovely clarity at this level. Anticipated maturity; 2010-2012.

Lemon cream and honey aromas follow through to a full body, with intense fruit and loads of pineapple cream pie character. Long and rich. Drink now.

Leuchtend gelb mit grünen Reflexen, ausgeprägtes Bouquet nach Holunderblüten, grünem Paprika, Salbei, Minze und mineralischen Noten. Elegant und kräftig im Gaumen, angenehm salzig auf der Zunge und saftig im Abgang.
