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 with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

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
