Kellerei Terlan - Pinot Grigio 2016
Mabye you know it already but I am a huge fan of the Alto Adige region with their perfect white wines but also the red ones. We had the plan to visit Sud Tirol (italy) this year but we had to change plans. So hope next year!
Today we drink the Terlan – Pinot Grigio 2016 (87 tsomw points)
In the glass a bright yellow color.
On the nose delicate aromas of melon, peach, pear and apple, nice mineral undertones and hints of almond / nuttiness.
On the palate medium-bodied, round, light creamy with a great freshness (frizzle on tongue) and acidity with notes of melon and pear and light almond aftertaste.
