2019 Hand Crafted Teroldego
By Hand Crafted
Story: Until recent times Teroldego was found exclusively in the Trentino region of Italy. It has a long, fascinating and well-documented history. Now that we have managed to pry a few cuttings from the hands of passionate Trentino producers, the 'Lucky Country' seems a likely place for this variety to flourish like the many talented Italian immigrants that have come before it.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.
Nose: The nose offers appealing aromas of sweet plums and dried herbs.
Palate: The palate is smooth with rich red berry flavours and tight, drying tannins.
Pairing: Try with soft shell blue swimmer crab in a tamarind sauce.
Cellaring: Drink now or to 2025
