Alois Lageder Chardonnay 2017

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyThey make four chardonnays at Lageder, and this is their introductory label. The classico is 100 percent chardonnay grown between 230 and 420 metres above sea level on rocky, sandy, Alto Adige limestone soils. At 12.5 percent it has a lightness and freshness that gives it immediate appeal. Apple core, mineral and melons set the tone for this medium-bodied white, one that comes with perfect acidity. Four months on its fine lees adds some texture and mouthfeel to a wine that sees no wood. Perfect with west coast shellfish, fish tacos, or creamy pasta dishes.Tasted: 29 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 speculative listing - Mark Anthony Wine Merchants Producer: Alois LagederDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
