More Information

This wine comes from a single-vineyard called Platt & Riegl at an elevation of 550 metres above sea level in the gravelly, mineral-rich soils of the Appiano Monte. The area is considered to be one of the premier terroirs of the Alto Adige, and this is one of its finest vineyards.

Here, in the lee of the snow-capped Mendola Mountain, the sun-drenched, rocky soils and the elevation make a considerable contribution to the style of the wine, as do the old vines, hand-harvesting, partial malo and partial vinification in large oak (50% in 5,000L cask). These influences result in a more textural, satiny and mineral wine than you typically get from this variety.

"The 2019 Platt & Riegl from Cantina Girlan takes all of the refreshing and tension-building characteristics of the “entry-level” Pinot Bianco and adds a bit more depth and ripeness of fruit. Sweet yellow flowers, hints of peach, white pepper and smoke make up its bouquet, as the expression turns more to notes of apple with a savory twang of wild herbs on the palate. There’s a lovely end note of sour lime, minerals and inner florals." 90 points, Eric Guido, Vinous
