Cantina Terlan Terlaner Classico 2016

A wonderful, unusual blend of Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Flowery and fruity on the nose leading to a tropical fruit palate with light yeasty notes. The vineyard at Terlan are some of the steepest slopes in the business above the town of Terlano in the Alto Adige. The wine-making tradition here dates back more than 2000 years. Southfacing slopes are ideal for grape growing.  At Terlan they commissioned and use unique horizontal stainless steel tanks designed especially to age the wine on the fine lees.   Such a large volume of the wine in contact with the yeast (the mucky fallout from fermentation) provides a fantastic creamy mouth-feel whilst retaining the fresh and vibrant acidity.  The other aspect of this region is its mineralilty inherent in the glacial soils which make the wines extremely ageworthy.  Truly elegant, full-bodied, dry, with a well balanced acidity and mineral undertone on the palate.
