THE GRAPE
Sylvaner.

 

THE WINE
The Isarco Valley, Italy's northernmost wine-growing region reaches from the source of the Isarco river at the Brenner Pass to the village of Bolzano, where it meets the Adige river.

A juicy, peachy white that deserves far more attention than it gets on this side of the Atlantic, Sylvaner in the capable, organic hands of winemaker Christian Kerschbaumer, is a sunny joy and a wine far too easy to savour.

A feast of stone fruit and bright lemony and grapefruit-inspired freshness, born from the ridiculously high-altitude vineyards in the Isarco Valley. Lightly filtered, organic, hand harvested.

 

THE PAIRING 
 As an aperitif; air-dried salami; moderately aged sheep’s cheese; summer dishes with fresh herbs
