Waldgries Ansitz Itos Pinot Bianco Riserva 2020


Forget the steely, linear versions of Pinot Bianco. This is a wine of substance and detail that showcases the true potential of the variety. Pale green lime with a green tinge. Lots of ripe stone fruits, green pineapple, papaya, corn husk, and rockmelon lifted by fragrant chamomile, dried clementine zest, and pink lady peel. Creamy and lush on the palate, with an array of stone fruits echoing, white and yellow peaches, nectarine and pleasant textural bitters linger; yuzu, apricot stone and botanicals. Although tight and fleshy, it has the zingy acidity of a Grand Cru Chablis. Don’t drink this too cold.
