Elegant and complex aromas of pear, guava, ginger and honey. Decanter Gold Medal

Elegant and refreshing, this white wine is made from Pinot Bianco grapes in the German dry style “Weissburgunder”. The 2017 vintage has overwhelming aromas of pear, guava, melon, ginger and honey, with subtle undertones of biscuit. It is made in the Alto Adige DOC, one of Italy’s highest altitude wine regions, by famous Swiss-Italian winemaking family K. Martini & Sohn. A truly delightful tipple, it’s been awarded with the prestigious Decanter gold medal.

Ageing potential: this wine will age beautifully for 3-9 years, and reward you should you decide to hold it.

  1. Sushi

    Lovely tropical fruit aroma on the nose. Crisp, light and refreshing with just the perfect hint of edginess. A great spring wine! This has to be my favourite white! I purchased this with some fruit cheeses and it was a delightful combination.
