Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro "k" Bianco 2013 Product #28474 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro

The gang at Alto Adige's Kelleri Kaltern winery just keep pumping out great value wines, but the new "K" series may be the best deals yet. It's a blend of wonderfully ripe Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc that explodes from the glass with aromas of citrus, apple, peach, green melon, and exotic spice.  In the mouth it's fresh and bright with flavors of crunchy green melon, white peach, papaya and more lemon/lime citrus.  Easy drinking, refreshing, wine that finishes with a nice little tangy kick and pulls you back for more.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2013 Product #28785 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2013 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2013

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  Great value, too.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013 Product #28708 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013

What a roll these guys are on!  Several vintages of 90-point scores from Wine Enthusiast and bragging rights as the best-selling under-$20 Pinot Grigio in the store.  The 2013 is a little crisper than the 2012, but just as delicious as ever.

Once again, it's a Pinot Grigio for folks who like actual flavor in their crisp, refreshing, whites.  As in the past, lovely aromas and flavors of ripe pear, crisp apple, peach, and tangerine here with an extra layer of complexity from notes of melon, blanched almond, and a lovely floral element.  A tad richer and fuller than in the past, but just as mouthwatering and salty-mineral on the juicy, fresh, finish.  Just lovely, great value, stuff.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012 Product #28228 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012

Lagrein is sort of the Dolcetto of Alto Adige, the bold but flexible everyday red that pairs perfectly with cheese, sausage and savory main courses.  This one's a beauty, ripe and dark and loaded with earthy cherry and plum fruit and bitter chocolate notes.  The texture is generous and round- making it a nice sipper - but bright acidity and fine tannins let it shine at table. Delicious and fine value!

"Sleek and rich with red fruit and black tannins, this is a peppery lagrein that shows edges of alcohol and leafiness. Those edges will add spice to most anything beefy, particularly a steak."Wine & Spirits 88 points

Kellerei Kaltern Muller Thurgau 2012 Product #27693 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Muller Thurgau 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Muller Thurgau 2012

It's way too easy for Muller-Thurgau - a Swiss crossing of Riesling with table grape Madeleine Royale - to be a ripe, flabby, mess. But, keep your yields low, let the fruit ripen fully, and take great care in winemaking, and you get something like this mouthwatering, fresh, beauty!  Generous aromas of grapefruit, peach, nutmeg and herb lead to mouthwatering flavors of citrus and stone fruit with a dash of mroe herb and spice.  Delicious by itself and a great match for seafood or any dish with plenty of fresh herb.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2013 Product #28862 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2013 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2013

Not sure what's in the water these days at this excellent co-op in the Alto Adige, but we know what's in the bottle - a LOT of quality for the money.  This is a stunning Pinot Blanc, bursting with crisp green and yellow fruit with juicy acids and a firm, focused, mineral finish.  More so even than its appealing, subtle, refreshing aromas and flavors, the texture and balance here is what is really impressive.  Occupying that perfect middle ground between a light quaffer like Muscadet and a more serious, richer oaked Chardonnay, this is perhaps the ultimate wine to pair with any crab dish, but impossible to resist on its own.
