A single-site Pinot Bianco, this comes from the Plattenriegl vineyard that sits at an elevation of 550 metres above sea level, in the gravelly, mineral-rich soils of the Appiano Monte. The area is considered to be one of the premier terroirs of the Alto Adige, and the Plattenriegl is one of its finest vineyards. Here, in the lee of the snow-capped Mendola mountain, the sun-drenched, rocky soils and elevation make a considerable contribution to the style of the wine, as do the old vines, hand harvesting, partial malo and partial vinification in large oak (50% in 50-hecto large format). These influences result in a far more textural, satiny and mineral wine than you typically get from this variety. The 2016 is a standout; a pulpy, textured white shot through with crystalline, racy, mountain-stream freshness. Expect crunchy stone fruits and citrus pith aromas and flavours.
