Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2016 Product #32372 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2016 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2016

If you loved the 2015 vintage from this perennial favorite Pinot Grigio producer, you’ll flip for the 2016. All those same lovely aromas of peaches and white flowers, and beautiful ripe, mouthfilling flavors of juicy pear, honey crisp apple and mouthwaterng citrus. There’s just an extra zing of tangy refreshment this year, making this the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods from salads to Thai food. With a lovely, dense texture, this is not the watery, bland Pinot Grigio you might expect at this price!

"Very floral and fresh aromas with lightly cooked pear. Full body, layered and flavorful. A wealth of character and intensity."  James Suckling 92 points

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2015 Product #30795 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015

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.  A tad more rich and round in the warm 2015 harvest, but still a refreshingly great value!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2015 Product #32237 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2015

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!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015 Product #31032 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Bianco Vial 2015

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.

"Kellerei Kaltern (Caldaro) does an excellent job with Pinot Bianco. This excellent value wine opens to bright fruit flavors and great mineral definition. The 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Vial is executed in stainless steel, although 10% of the wine sees aging in large oak casks. The wine is tonic and bright with an impressive charge of fresh fruit and white peach." Wine Advocate 91 points

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015 Product #32269 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio Soll 2015

The “big brother” to our best-selling Pinot Grigio of all time hails from a small vineyard small vineyard just north of the Alto Adige city of Bolzano.  Perched at 250-300 meters of elevation, it receives all of Alto Adige's bright summer sunshine but keeps cool thanks to constant breezes and cool evening air from the nearby Alpine and Dolomite mountains. A slow fermentation and aging of about 35% of the wine in large oak cask gives this more richness, power and complexity than the “regular” bottling, with no loss of refreshing crispness.  A great summer chill-out wine with the heft and body to enjoy on cool autumn and cold winter nights, too.

“Kaltern Caldaro offers an extensive line of value white wines that are truly spectacular. I am impressed by the Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Kerner-based wines. I highly recommend these beautiful wines from the extremely balanced 2015 vintage. The Kaltern Caldaro 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Söll is a zesty and refreshing white wine that delivers a pristine and bright drinking experience. There is a touch of sassy spice on the close that follows fruity tones of peach, melon and citrus. The wine offers good dimension and depth.”Wine Advocate 90 points
