The 2017 Pinot Bianco Vorberg Riserva is subtly sweet and perfumed in the glass, as a note of peaches-in-cream fades to yellow apple, raw almond, lemony citrus, stone dust and white flowers. It’s soothing on the palate with its silky textures, yet contrasting tension builds through gentle acids and minerals, creating a ripe yet also savory and almost-salty expression. The finish is long, resonating on ripe orchard fruits with inner florals and a hint of lime zest. (Eric Guido, Vinous, November 2020)

Absolutely stunning example of Pinot Bianco, an underrated variety in my opinion. The nose shows yellow apple, orange blossom, some creamy custardy character and a slight hint of sweet spice. In the mouth this wine is lush and lively with loads of texture from the barrel ferment and sur-lie aging. Quince jam, pineapple upside-down cake, and chamomile resonate on the intense finish. Had this for the first time at Single Thread a year and a half ago and bought a few bottles shortly thereafter. Worth it.

Fantastic Weissburgunder from a terrific co-op producer in Alto Adige. With almost 4 years of bottle age, this Pinot Blanc is picking up some creamy-toasty tertiary notes, layered with light tropical fruits, some salt-soaked minerals, yet still some crispness. I'm sure this may improve for some with additional aging, but I don't see any reason to wait... I tend to enjoy the brighter side of Terlano's wines.

Lean and mineral driven, with pear skin and green melon rind. Our guy at K&L recommended it for cioppino, good suggestion Kyle!
