Pinot Bianco Schulthauser 2007

16.0 / 20
Producer: Cantina S. Michele
Region: Tirol
Country: Italy

This white wine from Southern Tirol was approached with caution since I was a bit afraid that, after four years, it had lost most of its freshness and appeal. Gladly, I was wrong since the wine is still showing a good deal of freshness and acidity.

Nose starts by giving off some smoke, a slight vegetable impression, some rocky, mineral notes and later opens to ripe white fruits and flowers.

The fruit comes along stronger in the palate, combined with a good, fresh acidity that make a good impression despite the relatively soft structure. A dry, lemony finish enhances the taste, although I think there are some lingering evolution notes in here.

Very good as it is, I wouldn't wait anymore to drink it.
