Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomiti 2017

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyPinot grigio, grauburgunder or pinot gris is the most commonly cultivated white wine variety in Alto Adige, but the Lageder ‘Dolomiti’ is anything but common. The chalky soils with a high sand and gravel content are still within the purview of the warmer Mediterranean climate to ease ripening worries. You sense the chalky notes and minerality on the nose and palate, mixed with red apple and peaches drenched in citrus with a twist of honey in the finish. Elegant and stylish, I suggest west coast mussels or spaghetti vongole. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks where a small portion is in contact with stems and skins.Tasted: 29 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.99 private wine stores ON 21.95 LCBO QC 19.95 SAQ Producer: Alois LagederDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
