Somm Picks

OVERVIEW

About as far away from a generic Pinot Grigio as you can get. This grape, in the hands of biodynamic producer, Alois Lageder is revolutionised. Crisp, packed with white fruit flavour and minerality - racy and beguiling. A must try for people who think they know Pinot Grigio. 

CRITIC REVIEWS

Effusive nose of floral honey and summer meadows with a hint of vanilla. Ripe and open, yet bright and crisp with some positive tannins at the tantalizing finish. And it does all this with just 11.5% alcohol! From bio dynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink now. 92 Points. James Suckling

Racy and mineral driven, this vibrant white has compelling aromas of wet slate, Alpine wildflowers and mountain herbs. Certified organic and biodynamic, it's dry and linear, featuring ripe yellow pear, graphite, white pepper and hazelnut alongside bright, restoring acidity. 92 PointsWine Enthusiast

FOOD PAIRING INSPIRATION

This low alcohol, neutral Pinot Grigio will pair well with light summery dishes like Caesar salad, crab, white fish and chicken.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKING

2019 was a great year for whites from the Alto Adige with freshness, great acidity and fruity aromas. 

One part of the grapes was pressed immediately after their arrival at the estate, another part was kept on the skins for 15 hours and the third part was in contact with stems and skins for about one year. 

PRODUCER NOTES

Now in its sixth generation, Alois Lageder is one of the most highly regarded producers in the Alto Adige and over the last ten years has undergone a bit of a renaissance. With a new fresh line of wines and a commitment to biodynamic farming, the 'brand' really stands out as one of the most polished in this most traditional of winemaking regions. Happily the wines are also first rate, often scoring tre bicchiere awards with Gambero Rosso.
