Cooler Wines

OVERVIEW

A fresh, Dolomiti wine with grapes grown at 300 meters above sea level and vinified in stainless steel giving full expression to the quality of the grapes. High acidity, great freshness, mid bodied with an apple and grape profile. Great with a salad or light pasta dish.

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

2021 saw lower average temperatures than the last five years and this produced wines of great freshness and superb yields.

Selected vineyards in the Dolomiti area, situated at an altitude of 200-300 metres a.s.l. (660-980 feet).

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by maturation on the fine lees for at least four months.

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. 

The Alois Lageder Winery works together with wine-growing partners from the Dolomiti area to create fresh and vibrant wines that reflect their unique origin – the Dolomites. The landscape is at once Alpine and Mediterranean, cool and mild, composed of mountains and lakes, rugged rock edges and green hills. The terroir is breathtaking, captivating, and majestic.
