This powerfully structured and richly fruity Pinot Blanc is a classic example of the region's potential. Full-bodied, explosively aromatic and fairly high in alcohol, it offers impressive ripe tree-fruit flavors, bright acidity, and persistent aftertaste.
About this wine producer: The Niedrist family has grown wine grapes since 1870. In 1989 Ignaz Niedrist built his small winery just south of Bolzano. The very small production comes to about 4,000 cases. He continues to farm about 23 acres of vineyards. The red grapes grow in glacial moraine soil with with pebbles - an ideal environment for Pinot Noir, Vernatsch and Merlot. His Lagrein is cultivated on deep alluvial soil in the Berger Gei. His white grapes grow in Eppan Berg, where the limestone and red clay soil make a perfect home for fine Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon.
