In My Glass: 2010 Alois Lageder Haberle Pinot Bianco

Lageder Haberle Pinot BiancoMy enduring fascination with the wines of Alto Adige continues, and the spring months are some of the best times to enjoy wines from this region of northeast Italy. (Though, in truth they should be enjoyed all year round!)

The Alois Lageder Haberle Pinot Bianco is a straw yellow, with a clear, bright appearance in the glass. Lots of golden apple, pear, and peach aromas. While minerality was not pronounced on the palate, I did find it on the nose. It has a wonderful complexity, on the palate, which shows lemony notes and white peach in addition to the fruits found in the aroma. There is a lanolin viscosity, which gave the wine a nice richness and roundness. It is ripe, but not at all sweet. Medium plus acidity and body. The finish is clean, lingering, and lemony. Very good.

At Central Bottle for $24.
