Wine is fine: Alois Lageder Dolomiti Pinot Bianco 2007

16 Nov

Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco

Three new wines to try from work today.  First up is another Italian white, Alois Lageder Dolomiti Pinot Bianco 2007.

Style: Pinot Bianco/Blanc

Vitals: 12.5% abv, Aged on lees and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Serving Temperature: 12-13 degrees (C)

Description: “Brilliant straw yellow colour with a green tint. Very fine, fruity (apples, peaches), forward varietal aroma. Pronounced, clean, elegant, grapey flavour, light to medium-bodied with a fresh mouth-watering finish. –aloislageder.eu

My take: Fruit-forward with tart green apple and fragrant peach.  Semi-dry mouthfeel makes for a brisk yet clean finish.  Certainly a much drier Italian white than the Orvieto Classico I sampled a few nights ago and more akin to the white wines I am accustomed to.  Paired well with the free cauliflower cheddar soup I also brought home from work.I’m pretty sure that’s the pairing the vintners had in mind when conceiving this wine.

Bottom line: a pleasantly fruity yet clean semi-dry white in the $15/bottle range.
