    This is from a hillside in the town of Terlano in the Alto Adige where the soil is sandy, gravely and calcareous. A great place to plant grapes? This is what makes this so unique and the wines of this region unique as well. This Pinot Bianco is full-bodied, delicately fragrant and mildly floral, ripe honeydew melon and bartlett pear and lots of minerality balanced with acidity this can keep very easily over the next 5 years. A Great wine to serve for the winter holidays

    I’ll never forget my first visit to Vorberg, in German it basically means in front of the mountain, it is a vineyard that is seemingly applied to the steep face of the mountain. I put my hands in the soil to smell what it was like, intensely salty, how intense? I couldn’t get the smell off my hands for two days! This is the home of Vorberg one of the Alto Adige’s greatest white wines, they last an incredibly long time, I’ve had them back into the 1950’s. The nose is mineral driven then layers of ripe pear, fruit blossom and hints of bergamot. On the palate the wine has incredible intensity and weight, yet the richness of the wine balances the high acidity to the point it seems smooth. Long and intense finish, try it with Lobster or Halibut.

    I love a good age-worthy white wine and this Terlan Pinot Bianco is just that. The depth and texture of the wine reminds me of a premier cru Bourgogne blanc, making it a wonderful wine to enjoy now, the high elevation of the vineyard site adds acidity making it cellar-friendly. If enjoying now you will find a light aromatics that lead into a beautiful floral and full bodied wine. It is elegant and not overreaching. Stunning from start to finish.
