Alois Lageder Porer Pinot Grigio 2020
|Region||Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige|
Fragrant, finely-meshed and light- to medium-bodied, this elegant and intriguing white entices with its subtle floral- and spice-laced nose. The palate is lush and creamy, offering an expanding range of baked melon, Marcona almond, dried white cherry and accents of fleur de sel and singed orange peel. Drink now through 2026.
The 2018 Pinot Grigio Porer comes across as quite savory and spicy, while bursting with minerality and notes of crushed apple. It's caressing and round with pronounced inner sweetness and stimulating acids, which balance out the expression nicely. Pretty inner florals linger, along with a salty twang on the neat and clean finish. Very nice.
