Tiefenbrunner 2015 Pinot Grigio (Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy)

Tiefenbrunner 2015 Pinot Grigio (Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy), $11.04-$15.99, 89 points, was a light gold color trending quite clear at the glass edge.
Aromatic pome blossoms, apple, and a hint of pineapple were excellent.
Light, crisp, appropriately acidic, and full of flavors reflective of the aromas with hints of black pepper, melon rind, and kiwi were better as an aperitif than with my Asian cuisine.
Finished well on lime notes and a last moment's breath of pear along with the trailing palate and a balanced 12.5% alcohol.

  1. Ha! I just had this but haven't written it up. I concur, it's absolutely delicious and I love the screw cap too. They are a top producer in Alto Adige.

  2. And by the way, the 2015 whites I've had, have so far confirmed the early talk that the vintage is really something special across Italy, likely eclipsing 2010.

    1. John: Thx for your confirmation and for the micro vintage chart;-)
      I'm seeing the same thing, 2015 was a very good year, and very good vintage for Cali SB as well; though I've only had 10 (not like the more than 60 of the 2013 vintage Cali SB), the sample seems to show a special greatness.
      Thx again!

  3. Sounds like a very nice PG from a very good vintage. Note to self: must try to find some.
