Nals Margreid Baron Salvadori Riserva Chardonnay 2012 (Alto Adige) - Wine Review

wine is a delightful follow-up to the 2013 Nals Margreid Pinot Noir that I opened up in January. From Winery Nals Margreid top-of-the-line Baron Salvadori Selection series, the grapes for this Chardonnay come from the Margreid Vineyard in the lower west part of the valley. It has limestone gravel soils and was aged in 12 months tonneaux large casks.

This opulent and rich white wine is from the VINTAGES Release (tomorrow) and will be available in very limited quantities at VINTAGES Flagship Stores.

Nals Margreid Baron Salvadori Riserva Chardonnay 2012 - DOC Südtirol/Alto Adige, Italy (90+ pts)

Tasting Note:

NALS MARGREID BARON SALVADORI RISERVA CHARDONNAY 2012 - DOC Südtirol/Alto Adige, Italy (#435404) (XD) - $34.95
Peach and citrus with sweet vanilla aromas from the cork. Highly aromatic and inviting nose of pineapple, coconut, butterscotch, vanilla and hints of poached pear. Also just a touch reductive on the nose. On the full-bodied palate, it is rich and creamy with apple, nut and toasted oak flavours framed by bright and juicy acids. The dry, caramel-tinged finish lingers for quite a while. Score: 90+ pts
