92pts James Suckling
Sliced apples and cream, as well as hints of sliced pineapple on the nose. Medium body and a layered, creamy texture with green apples and limes on the aftertaste. Drink now.

Cantina Terlano shows a Midas Touch, even with a workhorse grape like this. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Tradition is a vibrant and zesty expression from Northern Italy. The wine clearly shows the high-altitude characteristics of mountain flowers, citrus, white peach and Granny Smith apple. This slightly cooler vintage delivers a sharp and streamlined approach. Serve it with the local half-moon ravioli known as Schlutzkrapfen, filled with apple and speck.

A creamy, light-bodied white, with mouthwatering acidity driving a finely knit range of Honeycrisp apple, Marcona almond and orchard blossom flavors, showing a rich and tangy streak of salinity that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
It is light straw in color with pleasant aromas of ripe melon and freshly picked MacIntosh apples. Crisp and light on the palate with lovely pineapple, Bartlett pear and apple flavors that harmoniously intermingle with orange zest and almond notes. The finish lingers with spicy tropical fruit. Pairs equally well with light seafood dinners and richer cream-based sauces.
