Kaltern, a forward Kellerei (Cantina in Italian), shows what high-altitude winegrowing and conscious winemaking can do with unassuming grape material. Their Pinot Bianco Vial 2022 is as fresh as they come, with elegant, slightly muted, but still very present fruit, and a deliciously creamy character. This mix, kind of the trademark here, creates a wine of striking balance begging for food but holding its own in any scene.
It is right to especially lift the mountain lake whites, because they deserve the attention on merit alone. You should indeed try Kaltern’s’ Saleit Chardonnay, Soll Pinot Grigio and Carned Kerner, to let these exemplary wines prove the inherit points made by all curious wine cosmopolitans and international tastemakers. The current vintage on the market, 2022, maybe the strongest yet for these whites.
We love these wines, both for their indigenous charm and drinkability, but even more so for their magnificent gastronomical qualities and slight underdog status. If you want to impress when hosting at home or dazzle your team with true value for money when ordering in restaurants, look no further than to Alto Adige and Kellerei Kaltern with their elegant tasty portfolio of prodigious whites.
