92pts James Suckling

We tasted this Elena Walch Alto Adige Pinot Bianco and were immediately smitten. It is deliciously clean, with intoxicating notes of stone fruit and citrus, but the real highlight for us was the beautiful acidity and crispy minerality. From 4th generation esteemed winemaker Elena Walch, this Pinot Bianco will absolutely sing next to the likes of oysters on the half shell, a creamy lobster pasta, roasted Meyer lemon chicken, seared scallops with a drizzle of tarragon cream, and much more. At this price you can't afford not to try it winelovers. Andiamo!!

James Suckling:  "A crystal-clear nose of barely ripe nectarines, fresh pears and citrus comes to the fore. Medium body with clear-cut acidity, loads of citrus character, and yet density and length, too. Drink now." Nov 2018

Winery:  "Our Pinot Bianco presents itself in clear, bright straw yellow, with fruity aromas, fresh apple notes and a touch of herbs in the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine surprises with elegant, mineral depth, lively acidity and a fresh finish.

The vintage 2018 presents itself as an excellent vintage with an excellent quality. Winter lingered a bit, resulting in a slightly late mid-April sprouting, but warm and rainy conditions through late May flowering re-aligned the calendar. The harvest finally started in best weather conditions in late August - a few cooler weeks in the middle to the end of August had postponed the start of reading for a few days after the very hot and dry weeks in July. It was followed by a golden autumn with sunny and warm days - for each variety, the ideal, phenolic maturity was awaited. Already cool nights, especially with the white wines, were crucial for preserving acidity and freshness. A great vintage in Alto Adige!"
