Elena Walch Pinot Bianco 2019 750mL JSJames Suckling, WEWine Enthusiast
Pinot Blanc from Alto Adige, Trenton-Alto Adige, Italy
100% Pinot Bianco
After harvest, the grapes are carefully crushed and pressed. The fresh must is statically clarified at low temperatures and then gently fermented at a controlled temperature of 20°C in stainless steel tanks. The young wine matures in stainless steel tanks for several months on the fine lees.
The Pinot Bianco presents itself in clear, bright straw yellow, with fruity aromas, fresh apple notes and a touch of herbs in the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine surprises with elegant, mineral depth, lively acidity and a fresh finish.
A pinot bianco with crystal-clear aromas of sliced apples, white flowers and minerals that follow through to a full body with density and structure that delivers freshness and layers at the finish. Flint and other minerals to the attractive fruit at the end. Drink or hold.
Savory and medium-bodied this has delicate scents of spring blossom, white stone fruit and a whiff Alpine herb. The elegant, creamy palate doles out yellow pear, white peach and a hint of white almond that lingers on the close.
An extremely versatile wine for many occasions, delicious as an aperitif or accompaniment for light starters as well as full-bodied first courses, white meat or poultry dishes.
